.357 magnum vs. motorcycle jacket?
We have a realistic possible threat directed toward my wife (5'2", 61 years old). Threat (6'2", 200 lbs., age 40) is likely to be wearing a heavy leather motorcycle jacket. We know him to be dangerous based on past history.
(Hopefully nothing will come of this, and we are taking full precautions, but this is a somewhat isolated area in NM, and there is a realistic possibility of a serious problem.)
Firearms she knows and can use are 3" SP101 and 3" GP100, both .357 mag. Our regular HD loads are JHP Buffalo Bore "short-barrel lower recoil low flash" .357 125 gr (1322 fps from 3" barrel), or Hornady FTX, similar ballistics. I'm confident either is ordinarily way plenty for HD, but the motorcycle jacket gives me pause... Thanks for any thoughts.
