    Interesting article.

    I do not agree with the statement that the current FAMS gun/ammo combo is too powerful for airborne duty since it overpenetrates (perforates) the first target (person) and can/will hit a bystander, but it's fine for street duty by the USSS or other LE agencies....every LE agency has to worry about ballistic overpenetration for civil safety and liability reasons, not just the FAMS.

    However, is the 357 SIG overpenetrating alot in actual street shootings? I don't know.
