    Oscar, I always thought "One Shot One Kill" was about shot placement instead of firearm or even caliber unless you're a'talkin' 20mm or bigger?

    I'm never had the chance to fire a Mk19, but I know what the 40MM does with my M203 under my Colt 16A1

    Imagine a mix between an M203 and an M2HB .50 with a short barrel and you'll about have it.

    Oh yeah!! now I remember seeing them in action. During the first Gulf war. Thye had footage of a marine unit, with one on a Humvee, unloading rounds at a tall tower down range. Impressive, MOST impressive! thump thump thump thump etc etc. I did get the change to shoow a Colt 50 Cal watercooled at ther North Country Shoot in Northern NH. The gun was used in the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora" on the rear of a ship, while firing rounds at attacking Jap zeros...that was fun as well

    Oscar you might be my brother from another mother, but even I, the wheelgun loving pariah in this community of Glockbois and old 1911 addicted farts, have to disagree with you unless you clarify your statement.

    Your cylinder holds more than one catridge for a very good reason. There's no such thing as a one shot stopper.

    Now I personally don't think it's absolutely necessary to have immediate access to 20 or more rounds of ammunition to defend yourself successfully. I've argued the point before that I don't realistically expect to fire more than a handful of shots in any given scenario involving the use of a handgun for personal defense.

    But when we're talking about handguns, unless you score excellent shot placement, one shot stopping (not to be confused with one stop shopping) doesn't seem to happen very often. Even the FBI's information seems to convey that two shots to the center of mass seems to be the most efficient and most likely way to stop a threat.

    I practice double taps and firing at speed as often as I can, even if it's just dry firing.

    Now for me personally it's probably very accurate to say I personally am much more likely to stop someone faster if I use a revolver because I shoot better with one. But that's because of my own biases and experience, not because of the physical format of the gun.

    The wheelgun offers many advantages but the ability to stop an aggressor in fewer shots isn't one of them.
