It could and it could not depends on the target I believe. i.e. 135 lb man versus 245 lb man, someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

I don't know if Federal JHPs will over penetrate. SOME 9mm loads could over penetrate, but not all of them. A good hollow point will definitely make over penetration less likely.

All of the calibers I listed are good for SD. Some are just a little more devastating. In the end though, if you have good shot placement, it won't matter if your using a .22 or a 12 Ga, the BG will be down for good. (I wouldn't recommend using a .22 though. )

You know...you're correct. It's not the .40....the 9mm has taken the lives of more bad guys than the .40 SW and quite possibly the .45ACP....so, the 9mm parabellum is the hands down winner

I think the correct term would be "Convince me" I am wrong" : )

Idk... 80 years with a hell of a lot of combat time is in favor of the 1911.

A 124 gr 9mm bullet will travel at about 1180 fps. This could cause over penetration.

A 180 gr .40 S&W bullet will travel at about 1000 fps. This is good, and will get the job done.

A 230 gr .45 ACP bullet will travel at about 850 fps. This will devastate whatever it hits.



Here's the site I got the info from. It's pretty cool.

Just use FMJ and get your target, and the one behind. All in one shot.
