I have no tales to tell, but if you're handy with Google and you search for "New York Times bullet effectiveness" or some such phrasing, you may find a recent article on the subject.
Ha, are you trying to insinuate that I'm a Para 3 junkie?
Haha! New York Times and news article, two things that never go together. They never get their facts straight.Naperville wrote: ↑Tue Apr 09, 2019 10:07 amI have no tales to tell, but if you're handy with Google and you search for "New York Times bullet effectiveness" or some such phrasing, you may find a recent article on the subject.
.45 was ranked #1 for "harm" and .357 was ranked #2.
I think the NYT was trying to open up the discussion to taxing or banning dangerous weapons....and they then inadvertently sold a few thousand more handguns.
In general that is pretty much true with all handguns/calibers. Some are worse than others admittedly. I'll always remember keeping a guy talking while waiting for the emergency services after he drove up to the gate at Ft. Carson after getting shot in the head twice with a 25 acp. Other than looking scared and bloody he was in pretty good condition considering all things.I'd like to think the 45 was a great load, but really none of these calibers are all that good compared to a shotgun or rifle.
This is mostly for entertainment value...but how about pig heads?
