    .44mag might not be 100%, but it's getting closer!

    My concern is whether it hits point-of-aim easily every time, to do the most damage to the central nervous/cardio/pulmonary systems in an attempt to stop the threat.

    Effectively shooting the BG with three well-placed and quickly timed shots will do more to stop the threat than say ten rounds poorly placed over an extended period of time.

    One-shot-man-stopper? Sure, from my Phaser.
    I don't know, some of them Kilingons had to be stunned more than once! Boy I wish I had a Phaser. Even if it was mounted on my car.

    A good 10mm load may be overkill in a civilian shooting situation. If its one of those factory loads that is not much better than a 40sw, then who can say.

    Just make sure you understand the possible ramifications of the bullet going entirely though the body and exiting, then hitting something else.
    After many years of consideration, I must regretfully conclude that diversity is our enemy.

    The guy who owns one of the LGS's in my area said he once shot a guy with a .40 (police rounds, HP's of some brand) three times in the chest and he simply sat back against a patrol car and waited for the ambulance. He was apparently a big dude who was high. Nothing is 100% except death and Obama ruining the country.

    Shot placement is more important than caliber, have you ever dropped that 500 pound bar of soap onto your toes?
