    Yeah? Like that guy that shot his infant son with a shotgun and was then hit with 14 rounds of .45ACP by the cops and still lives? I'll stick with 2 or 3 rounds of my 125gr JHP 9mms at 1300fps. It might work better, might not; but, that's how I roll.
    And if I wanted to I can carry a .40, 10mm, .45, 357sig auto, I just choose the 9mm.

    :agree:

    While I'm not in the "speed kills" school of thought, there's plenty of cases of failure of all calibers and weight, most involving multiple hits. Locally, there was a case where a Deputy was shot 4x in the chest w/ a .45, and he lived almost a month before dying of an infection.

    Sad reality is that in addition to training, most shootings will also require a lot of luck to survive, and what caliber/bullet you're shooting is gonna be pretty low on the list of problems you could have.

    There was a recent police shooting in NYC (Bronx, Aug 2010) where a perp was shot 23 times with 9mm Speer 124 +P GDHP rounds and survived. Conversely, a Brooklyn copper a few years back shot an killed a perp with (1) round to the chest (same ammo) after the perp attacked the officer with chair. I tend to think shot placement has more to do with it than caliber. Just my .02....:dunno:

    The body is big, bullets, even .45's are small in comparison. Lots of vital parts to hit, lots of space to miss. Personally I think the reason a lot of people either survive shootings or take a lot of rounds is to due to the anatomically incorrect targets that are used to train with. Nearly every silhouette target places the 10 ring in the stomach or belly of the target, not the vital triangle.
