Perhaps the FBI would do better if they didn't require their agents to have a law degree, but rather a far more solid background in field combat tactics and weapons training. A Brooks Brothers 3 piece suit and a padded leatherette day planner are really quite useless in a gunfight. As it's been often said, "The gun is the tool, the mind is the weapon". The FBI took a beating in Miami in 1986 because they went up against ruthless, armed opposition who had a superior mindset to win at all costs. Yes, one could argue they "lost", but they made their enemy pay a terrific price. No caliber change will rectify that....Ever. It's never happened to that degree again because the FBI has been just plain lucky up until this point. They went through much the same thing with the motorized bandits of the 30's, when the agency was still in it's infancy. They apparently haven't learned from their mistakes in the last 7+ decades.
