And then.... I can remember cases where one shot with a .22 cal .... killed someone.
It just all depends upon what & where ... and at what range.
I won't quit carrying 9mm, or my .357 either (which I prefer).
I figure enough holes.... and they would look worse than Sponge Bob.... in any caliber.
My objective is not necessarily to kill someone attacking me, but to keep them from killing me. So if they even end up wounded to the point they can no longer do me harm, mission accomplished.
