    I tried substantiating a couple years ago and there's just no data on it. It traces back to a supposition in a DOJ paper in the 80s but there's not a trace of data to back it up.

    I don't know what data you're looking for exactly, but this is the doorway to the UCR. I don't know what cannot be accessed by civilians and what is restricted anymore (if anything still is). Supposedly the FBI is working with law enforcement agencies nationwide to keep better records so that more thorough analyses may be made.

    The best available handgun for a quick stop is a .500 caliber with a long barrel, because anything larger is considered a destructive device by the BATFE. After that, it is all justification and rationalization.

    Honestly I would not be surprised if more died to .22 rounds than anything else. There are so many people who have guns in that caliber it outstrips anything else in use.

    That doesn't mean anyone would consider it a good SD round. It's not. Many experts have shown how weak that round is, and no more needs to be done to re-prove that fact.

    I have 9's and I have .40, .45, and 10mm and whichever I feel like carrying that is what I carry all will kill just do you job and it will get done.

    In that particular case, your worries about when it's better to carry .40 over 9mm will be over.
