    With dangerous game, it's all about penetration.

    The only problem with that is, us, as self defense advocates aren't looking to kill people per say, but to drop people as fast as we can. If they die, that's just a side effect. We'd call 911 and with immediate medical attention something like 80% of COM gunshot wounds are survivable. With thugs murdering each other, sure a .22 or .25 is going to do the job of killing. Nobody calls 911 until the body is found, bled out in the street.

    The fact is in most cases the sight of a pistol is going to end the fight, and if it doesn't, 2 well placed shots will end it and the BG will most likely survive it the ambulance arrives quick enough. Just my 2 cents, again.
