    You posed a question, to which I responded with a possibility. That's a fairly haphazard setup, IMO.

In BJ's case, it looks like 9 to the boiler room didn't get the job done but slowed the perp down sufficiently for one to the brain bucket. Would the number of rounds required have been reduced if he'd been shooting a 10? I don't know, but I believe so and that's why I carry a 10, not a 9. My opinion, nothing more, 10 gives me more of a warm fuzzy than 9.
    Have you seen a video of the shooting?
    a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.

    Not that I am aware of. Iím just curious how you know so much about how it played out.

    BJ stated that he shot the perp 10 times, the last a CNS shot. Did you get something different from the interview?

    You make it seem like you know that after the first 9 shots he was still charging full speed after the 9th shot, and on the 10th he dropped like a rock. Maybe thatís how it happened. Maybe itís not. Itís just always interesting how people always jump to whatever conclusion they want to fit their caliber argument.

    Really? Reread my statement, does it state that the perp was still hard-charging after nine rounds? NO! I don't doubt that he did drop like a rock after a CNS hit but he must have still been on his feet after 9 rounds, do you doubt that?

    In the interview it sounded like the last shot was done because the perp was still on his feet and moving. Seeing as the perp was not on the ground, the CNS shot was a security measure that PUT him on the ground. At least that was my impression.

    Story quote.
    The gunman died after being hit with 10 shots in a shootout Baldwin estimated lasted about 4 seconds.
    Each shot Baldwin fired at the gunman hit it's target including 9 to the chest and one to the central nervous system.
    Not sure if the guy was hard charging but nine to the chest means he was still on his feet and still a threat.
    I do not see this as caliber war fodder. I see it more about training and more training to become proficient even under stress.

    Yes, really. No it doesnít say that. Thatís why Iím asking. Everyone likes to interpret things in ways that validate their opinions. We donít know that anything that happened here would be any better with a *insert favorite caliber here*.

    A little more info.

    This particular In-and-Out Burger closes at 1 AM, so both BJ and Tori were in a hurry. As a result, according to BJ himself: ďNo she (Tori) did not have it (her CCW handgun) with her that day. We rushed out of the house to get food before closing and she left itĒ.
