    +1 for the USMC
    +1 for the .45
    -1 for terrorists
    -1 for the... (uh-oh, that'll get me in trouble)

    I'm glad the terrorist guy didn't, but I can't figure out why he stopped shooting. Must've been a mean look in that Sgt's eyes.

    All you guys who think that the 9mm is not a good defensive round because of the above story ask your dentist to do your next extraction using this method. Afterwards be sure to post the pictures.

    Why you should brush your teeth

    It does make one wonder what kind of toothbrush the guy uses - brass or stainless bristles. And I presume Hoppe's or something for toothpaste???

    If you've ever been curious as to the power of various cartridges, check this table out. It was compiled by a guy I know on another forum: It compares the raw power of various loads to the power of a pitched softball.
