I suspect a fair number of people who aren't privy to the actual results of people sustaining gunshot wounds may tend to have an unrealistic perception of the "effectiveness" of any particular handgun caliber & ammunition combination. Too much exposure to online video gaming, as well as TV & Movie special effects and scripted stunts.
This sort of misplaced confidence in handguns & handgun ammunition might be sometimes distract some owners/users from considering issues such as the handgun shooter
being able to act quickly & effectively, using good tactics and shooting skills, as well as developing the mindset necessary for effectively functioning under high stress (mental & physical) conditions.
It's a handgun ...
