1986 FBI Miami Firefight

    On April 11, 1986 two serial bank robbers were engaged in a gunfight with 8 FBI agents. This moment is the evidence used to justify upgrading to more powerful handguns in the FBI and law enforcement. The only other moment more important than this would be the infamous North Hollywood Bank Robbery.

    The video has personal recounts of the day and analyzed by FBI agents. The re-enactments are a bit cheesy, like watching an episode of CHIPS. It is interesting how much has changed from this time. The tactics and equipment used is drastically different with regards to how to engage a target. Take training seriously. 104 rounds fired in just 5 mins. The suspects were only shot 12 times and 6 times respectively before dying.
