    How much easier would it be for police to ID and track the car if you put one round into the back window (while trying to hit the BG)? When you dial 911, that detail might improve their odds of being able to find the car.

    That is why you have to carry the 'Movie Handgun'! You know, the one that has no recoil, endless ammo and blows things up when you hit them once.

    Gees, every local gun store can sell you one, no?

    Seriously though. The most effective shot in that situation is going to be taking out the driver, and that will be from the side or rear of the vehicle. For the most part, none of us carry the most effective round for a windshield. With the laminated glass, it will be difficult for a hollow point to penetrate it. I'd prefer a FMJ against a windshield. Take the side glass and driver is your best bet.
    This is a point I havent really seen discussed in either thread....

    Go for most effective? Or most likely to hit?

    Of course it depends on your skill with the firearm you have on you. For myself, I'm going for most likely to hit....focus on the tires.

    They'll know it immediately and immediately their focus will be on....escape, struggling to control car, Plan B (probably dont have one), dumping the car, etc etc. And they will have to stop fairly soon and will be obvious driving around one or more rims. Chances of catching them increases exponentially. I think this plan has higher odds for success for my skills.

    Odds of head shots in a moving vehicle? Hmmm....I've read/seen enough 'gun fights' to know that such things are alot harder and more difficult to control than people generally think.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Inorite?

    How is the bad guy going to know I'm about to shoot him if he doesn't hear my non-existent hammer cock?

    THis is my conclusion as well. The tires seem to fit best with my abilities. Sure it wont stop the car, but will make it so any car I own, with me driving, can catch them.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    You know what stops a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun

    Quite true. I'd think the tires are a superior choice to the back window, I was just spit-balling on options outside of 'driver' and 'tires'.

    If you wait until it passes you to shoot at the back window, you've waited too long.

    Er, yes. But there're multiple scenarios and multiple bullets available to most guns.

    As long as that's not the primary target.
