Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. WHY WOULD YOU USE DUMMY ROUNDS FOR A STOCK PHOTO OF A PILE OF BULLETS!? It’s not like bullets are that expensive, and even people who don’t know anything about guns have seen enough bullets they’re going to know SOMETHING is up!

  2. I have seen deer that drop after getting hit in the vitals by a .223, and deer that run a few hundred yards after being hit by a 180 grain .30-06. I remember seeing one deer in Indiana that ran the length of a corn field after being hit by a 12 gauge slug, the deer had one lung hanging outside of it’s body. Looked like a bomb went off inside of it.

    I went on a dangerous game hunt and remember talking with the guide. He said he has seen as many water buffalo, lions, and hippos drop to .375 H&H as .460 Weatherby mags. Sometime they fall over in one shot, other times they soak up bullets like a sponge.

    The one stop shot navel gazing is stupid. That guy in Miami that got hit in the pump with a 147 9mm didn’t die fast enough. There absolutely no way of saying that if that guy had been hit in that same spot under the same circumstances with a .40 or .45 or .357, he would have dropped instantly. None at all.

    Hell, there are at least to veterans of the War on Terror who have come home alive having been SHOT WITH AN RPG!


    At this point, I figure the only legitimate issue in “the caliber wars” is price. If a box of .45 JHP is a couple of bucks more than a box of 9mm JHP, than over the cost of millions of rounds that a government agency is buying, how much money will be saved by switching to 9mm?

    1. I completely agree with your post.

      When the FBI switched over to the 10mm, they did so because of the overall performance, mainly the penatration of “hard targets”.

      Only fools choose a caliber because of some “one hit kill”.
