Plus I saw Tom Hanks blow up a German tank with his 45 1911! We were using those 45's anti armor rounds.

Where did the 9mm detail come from? Didnt see it mentioned in the article.

I'm with you on this one, a headshot proves neither the proficiency nor deficiency of a round...it seems the OP is a admirer of the 9mm and is showing its efficacy with this story. Unfortunately it seems like grasping at straws.

The second story where someone was hit in the chest would do a better job of supporting the power of the mighty 9mm.

Although I am not a LEO, this is why I practice at 25 yards and further. You just never know the circumstances that may force you to shoot in self defense. You have to know your limitations with your weapons.

I am glad everyone went to the appropriate place after the shooting. Good job Lt.

Who thinks he going to report that he was "aiming" at the belt buckle, but missed?

Yea, who needs the first amendment. That thing is out of date, and the founding fathers never would have imagined this violent rap music they're coming out with now.
