    9 mm are not always game Enders either....also I stated that if they were not found on the ground we looked next at the ER. All rounds as a general rule will end an assault a high percent of the time. We went to the ER to get people shot with 9mm too with torso shot wounds. Some make it and some don't, that's all I can say. I'm just not going to get into an online spat over it and as I originally posted at the beginning that some on this forum will put down this round. I can get newspaper articles stating people surving big caliber shootings. Look at the famous FBI shooting ,,,,,9mm.
    I'm just talking from my life experience and I saw a lot of officers come and go for different reasons. A lot of people put that badge and target suit on and it goes to their head. We called them shooting stars. Us retirees look back on all the stuff that has occurred and we consider ourselves survivors. Nothing more and nothing less. But I know that I do disagree with several things I've read on these forums by selfprofessed knowalls anyway, so it's no big deal to me in whichever direction it goes.

    I wish I had! It would have saved me hundreds of rounds wasted "breaking in" two P380's and a PM9; none of which ever reached "Kahr-Nirvana". Fortunately, I only paid for the first P380. Now I know why my former agency never approved them.

    Sorry for straying from the original topic.
    Yeah I have been reading quite a bit on the break in period of the CM9. It doesn't bother me much at all. I've heard the same things about $2,000 Les Baer 1911s, yet people keep buying those with good results. I figure I will get one and see what happens.

    As for the caliber wars, I recall a story of a police officer shooting a guy through the heart with a 12ga deer slug and the guy was still able to run back into his house and lock himself in a room where they found him bled out. No round is a magic BB. The human body is capable of amazing things by itself, then add in drugs and you have one heck of a fight on your hands.

Crucial information for those that carry a handgun to protect the lives of themselves and their loved ones, don't ya think?
    I don't really see the relevance. After reading the whole article it sounds like the GG did not get shot in any critical part of his body. They did not say where the BG was hit with the 2 9mm rounds. This situation could have easily gone the other way.

    My biggest concern with carrying my .32 is really not the caliber, but the number of rounds it has. It has 6+1 and that seems like very little compared to my Glock 19 which has 15+1.

    The bad guy's laser was probably busted. I've heard S&W BGs have that problem a lot and their sights suck.

    Agreed. I'd never admit to it publicly (ok, by that I mean in front of my buds), but if I could find a dural (aluminum frame) PPK in .32 I'd buy it in a heartbeat, and might even carry it.

    GG was shot twice in the chest, shoulder and arm. BG was shot twice in the chest. I followed this story after it took place in 2009 and read other reports on the shooting. You're right, its not relevant that the good guy took five hits from a .380 and still had the ability to put two shots center mass into the BG.

    I expect to be struck by lighting twice before my first gunfight, so a P-32 seems adequate and a holster seems unecessesary. In its heyday (early 1900s) the .32 ACP was the most popular caliber in Europe and was reportably the caliber Hitler killed himself with, so this caliber has a pedigree.

    Right.

    p32

    The p32 is a minimal carry gun but it fits right in my pocket so its there if I need it. There's not many guns that will drop in your front pocket and not print heavy.

    But it is also said he chomped down on a cyanide capsule as he shot himself, just to make sure.

    It all goes without saying. Its not the caliber but where you put you bullets. Yes bigger is better but shoot what you can handle the best and put rounds where they need to go. Train hard and fight easy above all stay alive.
