Re: Spin-off Thread - Why do you carry what you carry?
I have read many posts on this and other forums by LEO's as to the effects of different calibers and their stopping power. My feeling is that shot placement and luck is way more important than caliber. They cite many examples of instant fatalities with .22's and survivors hit multiple times with .357 mag's. I do think that the majority of BG's will be somewhat distracted when shot and the threat will be over. A BG high on drugs is quite another story and I would keep pulling the trigger until it just goes click and hope for the best. I carry what I think I can conceal best and shoot the most comfortably and reliably. It's not always the same pistola, that's why I keep having to buy new ones.
