    It something I consider when I carry. I don't want to start another "issue" but I carry and load considering penetration

    I know this contdictory, but normally at closer range and higher vel you get less penetration. I've seen it a lot in deer hunting with a rifle.

    The shot was YARDS, not feet.

    Even 45 FEET is a very long personal protection shot...

    But yes, I agree, that bullet would likely have penetrated a person easier than it did that deer... At that angle, the deer is ''thicker'' than a person unless the person was angled to shoot thru the side and both arms. BUT that would likely include more and heavier bones.

    Add heavy winter clothing and or heavy muscular bodies and things change again...

    Back on topic....

    DAMN THAT'S A BIG PIG!!

    It's pretty nice
    Worst case scenario, the prosecutor digs up all your interwebs accounts and finds this thread. No pleading ignorance from this point on. Be responsible, the .40 works fine on scumbags and you don't need to buy ammo from some guy who makes it in his garage (or your garage). Been shooting 10mm for 12 years. 155's would be max weight if you plan on carrying IF you're worried about it. If not, F it!

    These "over powered" or "over penetration" arguments sure sound familiar. They had all the same arguments back in the 1960 era when 357 magnums were becoming more popular, versus 38 special.

    .357s in the 60's and 70's, .40 S&W in the 80's and 90's. I wonder what will be next - energy weapons?

    I can have a Death Ray but I'm limited to no. 4 on the dial and after pushing the Fire button 7 times I will have to power down and restart.:rofl:

    I got a good laugh over that one. The scary part is you could be right.

    10mm for me, every single day. If you want to carry less gun, go ahead, I choose to carry more.
