five times on his right side;
two times in his left hip;
three times in his upper chest;

Not really, even with that many rounds obviously none hit a vital area."For him to be hit that many times throughout his body ... even though he's critical, he's expected to survive," Chief Inspector Scott Small said. "That's pretty miraculous."
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
OK, that's the last time I conceal carry a BB gun.........
As I heard in all those self defense pistol classes..."Shot them in the hip and it will shatter."
Yet another self defense myth shot to hell.
Looks like he was shot with .40 or .45 acp...
The guy got lucky. Apparently they shot at him at least 23 times.
Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.
Pretty freaky. But I see that says he "walked into a hospital 2 miles away." Which is not necessarily saying he walked to a hospital. Nonetheless, pretty unusual.

Nobody will be able to complain around him ...
"I have a headache" - Yea, well that doesn't hurt like getting shot 16 times.
"I'm too tired to go on a walk" - I walked 2 miles to a hospital, after being shot 16 times.
Humor aside, this is a good example of why I deem "just" a pocket gun insufficient.
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.

The usual statistic is that 85% of those shot with a handgun survive.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 229 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
Want to tell me one time again which caliber is the best for a one (or two) shot STOP?????
(Yeah, I know, I know, but had to toss that in anyway )
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
.40 or .45 hmmm, just donít hear about this kind of thing with .357 mag. Let the caliber war begin, itís been a while.
The laws of probability say bigger and faster will probably do more damage. How big and how fast can you control?
