Is it True?

Discussion in 'The .40 S&W Club' started by citationzx12r, Mar 10, 2010.

  1. I heard that a 9mm and a .45 could not penatrate a Windshield but a 40 could? Is this True

    Since I have no 45 or 9 and I like my windshield I thought I would ask the experts.

    If this is true how is it possible if the 9mm travels so fast? I know that the 45 is fat and can see that not going through.

    Wow what important questions ones brains comes up with:dunno:

    Also How do I join the 40 club?

    I have a Fully Custom G 23 for SD and a G22 for GSSF!

    Go 40:wow:

    I carry 45's. They are not the greatest on car doors, they will go through winshields ( I know). The 9mil is great through car doors and winshields....

    I am not sure why you want to shoot through Windshields but the 357 sig would be your best choice.

    It is more about ammo choices. 135 gr will go through Windshields much better than 180 gr. It will also go through people better. A fmj will work better than a jhp but the inverse is true for people. There is no such thing as a perfect round.

    Your better off sticking with hot 165 or 180 jhp and worring about people. You don't hear about many self defense shootings through windshields.
  4. I am not worried about shooting through a windshield but I went to a gun show and heard that and was just curiouse. I carry a 40 cal 180 gr Winchester Ranger T for self defense.

    I seriously doubt that I will ever shoot through a windshield. I was just looking for knowledge.

    There is not a dang thing wrong about looking for knowledge. You just have to be careful where and from whom you get it...

    You never know in life what may happen to you, or how, or where. You may need to shoot through glass, a car door a barrier, you just do not know. The BG is not always just standing in front of you chest exposed and saying shoot me. I am saying to you to always be prepaired, and be prepaired with ammo that will penetrate through an arm and then into the BG and still reach vitals, or will perform in case you are trapped in your car and one or more are trying to kill you and you need to shoot through the glass. I could give you a cajillion examples. but you get the idea. I hope. ;)

    Just plan for the worst. Then if it happens, your ready !

    Stay safe
    Use your head....
