to be open to constant criticism.
OMG
That acutally makes sense

Based on that we should all go out and get herpes, since something widespread must be good.

You take the herpes, we'll take the 9mm.



But yeah, really, you are right.

I can see the similarities, of a

disease spread by ignorant skeezers, and a

pistol round which performs so well it

has been adopted, and used

in most of the effective armies and police forces

worldwide in the last 50 years.

It's just so obvious, why didn't I see it before?

A few words are exchanged and next thing you know the raging bull pulls out a (later to be found out) .25 caliber pistol and shoots the other fella in the face from two feet away. The guys head jerks back, he grabs at his profusely bleeding mouth and then spits, that's right, SPITS out the .25 caliber projectile that lodged in the roof of his mouth upon impact. Rare? Sure. But because of that crazy incident that I witnessed, I now carry .45.

The End.
Anecdotal. Proves nothing except the guy's upper palate was thick enough to stop a .25 cal bullet striking at that particular angle. If the bullet had struck at a les oblique angle or hit the back of his mouth instead.........

hmmm. herpes or 9mm? i'll go with 9mm.


9mm SD ammo is much better than it was years ago as all SD ammo is better than it was years ago. much better bullets and powders mean better ammo for better results.

until he ran out of ammo, at which point he threw his gun and Charged at the officers nearest him...
fortunately he was then taken out by two 12g shotgun blasts...one to the chest, one to the head...
that's when I bought my first Calico w 50 & 100rd mags...if you are gonna use 9mm, have a LOT of it handy!!!
Were those two head shots straight-on head shots that penetrated the skull -- or were they glancing-blow head shots that ricocheted off the skull? Yeah, it does matter.

Ok, herpes may be "widespread" -- but it sure as spit ain't popular. I think that's a "fail".
