I would like first hand accounts of those who have been there and done that. I have not, thankfully. I keep a 1911 .45acp most of time, close at hand. I also keep a Glock 19 9mm close at hand and would trust my life to either one. To me all handguns suck anyway, so it doesnt matter in the end. If I have time Im going for my AR or shotgun. I have two friends who served in Iraq, who on two occasions had to shoot people,once during a firefight and secondly when a person was trying to run their roadblock. Both were using the M9 with 124gr. FMJ issued ammo. One guy was struck through his windshield upper chest and neck, and he was DRT. Second guy was during a firefight, his M4 was out of ammo, the guy was maybe 10 feet from him, he noticed my buddy, and began turning toward him and bring his rifle up, my buddy who instead of reloading pulled his M9 and put 3 or 4 rounds in the chest of the enemy. He dropped like a rock and never moved again. They are both squared away and honest guys. Modest and not the type to brag. I believe them completely when they told me what had occurred. So I would like to hear from people with real world experience and not just magazine reviews and gel test of what super hollow point A SHOULD do IF it is needed and used. Thanks in advance. I think real world is all that counts. All the rest of the arguing on the Caliber Corner is conjecture at best and ignorance at worst.
