    Very interesting. Thank you for the posting. If nothing else, it is a logical observation that explains the concept very well.

    Probably one of the most sensible approaches to our inevitable and ongoing caliber issues.

    Kudos to Dave Spaulding, and thanks for posting it.

    Dave Spaulding discusses stopping power

    Spaulding is the guy I would want to take a class for he seems to be very practical and effective

    His results is one of the reasons the smallest gun I carry is the 10 rd g26. Sure the single stacks are smaller but as he pointed out, its about 3 rounds in one second. Another target and I am reloading after firing.

    This video makes me lean more towards the 9mm because I am a newbie. Being able to shoot well is more important than a larger bullet.

    I read one of his books. Good stuff.

    I have .380s, 9mms, a .38 Spl, and a .45. The one real advantage I feel the .45 has is not from the larger diameter of the bullet, but the bullet's heavier weight. If you have a need to shoot through a barrier like windshield glass, the point of impact is going to be closer to the point of aim with the heavier bullets. If you go over to Theboxotruth, their testing shows that windshields deflect 9mm more than .40, which is deflected more than .45. The .45 was not deflected much, if at all.

    As an Auxiliary, we get tasked with a lot of details that involve traffic control. Thus, we deal with a lot of people in/around cars. That's why I bought myself a .45.

    Other than that, I don't feel there is much difference when it comes to handgun calibers.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Love Daves work. Again shot placement trumps caliber. Fire untill the threat is eliminated. Stay safe.

    Even if it a well-worn talking-point (shot placement is the most important), it's a pretty pragmatic presentation and well done.
