    maybe cause it would have been a threat to national security to test the 10mm at the scale they were testing :dunno:

    Comparing handgun calibers of 9mm or greater is like [some witty analogy suggesting futility and pointlessness].

    Don't forget werewolves and a genie (evil and good) in your comparison.

    Category: CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, ILLEGAL, etc...

    *shrug* idiots run the world. idiots aren't very tech savvy.

    torrent = illegal pirating stuff
    guns = baby killers
    mcdonalds = speedy, nutritious meal

    we're doomed

    I'd not take the bet that most guns are used to shoot people, I'd not take the bet that most people who eat at mcdonalds are having a healthy meal, but I'd sure bet that most active torrents are piracy. :big grin:

    Every one of these calibers evidently has a "one-stop" rate >50%.

    I dont think it means dead

    His data is based on "one shot stops". This is defined as: 1. a single hit to anywhere on the body not counting the head, neck or extremity shot: 2. when a subject stops shooting or striking blows if that was what he was doing and 3. runs no more than 10 feet before collapsing. In other words, Marshall’s studies examine what happens in the first few seconds after a shooting.

    Just a practical statement with regard to network management. There may be 1 guy that wants to download a linux torrent but giving him the benefit of the doubt means that I get bitched at when the 99 people downloading spiderman slow the network to a crawl. Tech savvy has nothing to do with it.
