Anyway believe what you want to but the tested science is irrefutable.

I putlinks up to the test conclussions on another post but I ant gonna get into it.

More than half he country voted for obama, and half the posters here think the 9mm is a superior man stopper to the 45 lol
Wrong again!
They used non expanding bullets on 'dead' meat which does not even come close to replicating 'live' meat.
You are being 'indoctrinated' by emotion, myth, and misinformation just like the Barry voters!!!!
I did not say the 9 was any better than the 45 in the terminal ballistics area. What I did say is they are so close in their ability to 'stop the fight' that it don't really matter, UNLESS you consider the totality of the circumstances!!!

It's difficult to understand what politics has to do with this, but if you get killed by a single shot from a .25 auto, that little piece pf lead/copper was the most devastating bullet you ever encountered. If it is a .500 Magnum, then THAt bullet was the most devastating. One thing about bullet diameter that may be pertinent is that a larger diameter lessens the likelyhood that it will slip between major blood vessels and/or nerves without striking anything critical. Only a little, but it does have that factor.

The US Government conducted three tests where they shot dead guys with particular bullets....in the first 2 declassified test we know that all the dead guys remained dead after being shot. This raises the question "why is that third test classified??" Did they shoot a dead guy who was no longer dead after being shot?

Or maybe they shot a dead guy who wasn't dead before being shot???

Yeah, the republican party can also field a decent candidate for

the presidential election, but how often does that happen, either?

After seeing a test video of a Ruger LCP fired 380 through a leather jacket, swet shirt, slab of ribs and then into ballistic gel.... It is lethal and I trust it.
