    Years ago in the 80s, I was shooting a 380 Bersa with WWB 95gr & would'nt go though a 55 gal drum. Dent the heck out of it but no pass through ; ) PS back then metal was a little tougher

    That same 380 dropped a very large Raccoon this evening that had to go . That laser sure worked well in the dark one to the head it was all over.
    Daughter was carrying at the time, when it was clear it had to go she took care of it.
    before anyone goes nuts we do not live in town.
    Over population of Raccoons due to no one hunting anymore, has caused rabies and other health issues. The high number and increased size due to long life cause serve property damage.
    380 has it's place in CC

    Yeah, but what would have happened if the box was behind a leather vest and a Carhartt jacket on a cold day when the air is more dense?
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
