    In the research by Greg Ellifritz, the most important information is the failure to incapacitate. The data pretty much shows that you'll need to fire 2+ shots for incapacitation of either 9mm or 40.

    a .10 mm is not a .40 on steroids, a .40 is a 10mm with it's balls removed

    can't remember whom I heard it from that the .40 would be somewhat obsolete over the next ten years.
    Because we'll all be packing phazers and pulse rifles

    Did a search for "caliber" and these were near the top of the results list.

    It's hard to see dates on the phone. I've done the same thing lots of times.

    Except for those frequent occasions when one .45 is not enough, kinda the same way one of anything from a handgun is not always enough.

    All three calibers make about the same amount of energy, how is it the .45 is imbued with magical powers?

    How about I don't want to be shot at all, with any caliber, ever. Caliber wars are silly.

    If you encounter a very determined, very angry person, they'll soak up just as many .45 rounds as they would .40 or 9mm and still keep coming. Ask officer Wilson.
