Looks like we have a volunteer!
So you get a digital camera that makes videos,and a willing friend,go to the range,and let him shoot you point blank in the chest with a 9x19 round of your choice!
I suggest the totally pathetic 115 grain FMJ as loaded to SAAMI spec!
Post the results on Youtube,and make sure to share the link here,(or get the guy doing the shooting to do it for you,since you might be a little "preoccupied" in the ICU of the local hospital or in the morgue).
Still want to "take your chances"?
Choose a round that-
1.Functions well and is accurate in your gun.
2.Does not sacrifice penetration for any reason.It should at lest get 12" of penetration in any conventional ballistic gel test.
3.You are capable of shooting accurately and quickly.
If its capable of good penetration,and YOU are capable of good shot placement,thats all that matters in handgun ammo selection- everything else is an Internet argument of monumental pointless self aggrandizement and phallic measurement which has been going on,relentlessly and uselessly,since the internet was created by Al freakin Gore (lol).
