"Just blame Sixto"
I reserve the right to make fun, point and laugh etc.
Simple solid lead 32 and 38 were dropping bad guys and stopping aggression for decades and decades and decades until the internet and an eager consumer arose to demand "new and better", resulting in "experts" eager to cast aspersions on those that would dare to stray from the new rules of engagement. When there is a void, it will be filled. And the internet has facilitated a willing and eager market that demands discussion on the most microscopic minutia of anything about anything that can possibly be dissected and discussed.
Put a 32, a 38, a 380, a 9mm, a 40, a 45 on a vital and bad things happen. Miss a vital with any of them and you get examples like the guy shot by cop 5 times with .357 and shoot cop back with 22....guy walks away with relatively minor injuries, cops dies because .22 hit vital (Note to internet: I'm not making claims on the .22 caliber). We have a preoccupation, almost a compulsion, with minutia because the vehicle is here to discuses the complexities of things that really are not that complex to start with.
A lot of guys are dead, and even more aggression stopped, from what the internetery would now claim to be woefully insufficient and borderline irresponsible for use in self defense. Go faster and lighter if you want, or slower and heavier. Whichever suits your fancy. There is a large data set on both suggesting either will likely suit the intended purpose.
