    shot placement is the only thing that matters. 'stopping power' = lols
     
  4. The article should be titled "In defense of the 9 +p+"

    a couple weeks ago i was in the comcast building and there was a jail officer in front of me. i noticed he was toting a blackhawk holster so i asked him about it. he asked me what i carried and i told him a glock 19. he responded with, "thats a cute little gun. i carry a 22 b/c i dont carry anything less than a .40."

    it made me roll my eyes. people that live off of the "stopping power" or "power over placement" are just ignorant

    I'm confused.
     
  8. He was talking in a different part about how since the 70's the +p and +p+ ammo has helped level the playing field.

    Just because no OT thread is complete without some hate, he came to a sound conclusion but cited terrible references in the form of S&M (which is what ballistics threads generally are anyway...) and the goat tests. These are not considered sound or accurate works and in the case of the goat tests may not even be works to start with.

    I find his comments on recoil interesting, as he seems to believe that all recoil is created equal, when in reality, the different natures of the rounds produce a different 'type' of recoil, atleast in my experience.

    Just seal some mercury in the hollowpoint, stopping power schmopping power.
    Shoot em in the foot and run away... they'll be dead within the hour.

    I don't think mercury poisoning hits that fast. you could always seal in some Titanium tetrachloride or cesium though.

    I can fire more rounds on target in a given time with .45 than with 9mm :dunno:
     
  23. I find that my 10mm is more pleasant to shoot than a 9mm. The 9mm and .40 have a much "snappier" recoil whereas the 10mm and .45 are more of a slow push.
