For you .45 lovers out there. Just found this story on
For the record I am a 1911 and .45 nut!
I shot a skunk today, hit it at about 30 yards with 230gr FMJ- The round struck the rump and was followed by a straight stream of yellow stink that stretched what seemed like 15 feet (all take note of range) He didn't die! He started hobbling away... I walked up within 10 or 15 yards and shot him again, a hit, he still didn't die... He just laid there, writhing in pain. I got up close and shot him in the head to put him out of his misery...
3 230 grain shots- I guess stopping power comes in the way of a HP
Just passing on the info-
