Jesus are we really going to go round and round with this discussion again?
I grow tired of this Rube Goldberging.
Let me ask you all this:
How many rounds fired by police officers in shoot out conditions HIT their intended target??
1 out of 4? Meaning a police officer under duress hits 25% of the time?
2 out of 4? Meaning a police officer under duress hits 50% of the time?
What about the ROUNDS THAT MISS?!?!?
No one ever wonders about over-penetration or dynamic/systemic shock or incapacitating ability for the rounds.
6 inches of penetration? 8 inches? 18 inches? If there is NO media between the barrel and where the round ends up, what about THOSE
The only time this comes up is when someone is worried about shooting THROUGH some bad guy and somehow hitting the next Mother Teresa, killing her before she can change the world.
Let me paint you a little scenario.
It's a nice sunny day. You decide to head off to the Home Depot to get some parts to fix those broken fence boards and some cleaner for the siding.
Just so happens at that same exact moment the bank in the parking lot of the Home Depot is being robbed as the armored car pulled up to transfer funds.
As the robbers in question have already started shooting it out with the guards, you feel it's your obligation as a Concealed Weapon Holder to interject yourself into the fray.
Option A) Everyone WITHOUT a weapon is lining up behind the bad guys, munching popcorn, watching the show and just waiting to catch an over-penetrating bullet??
Option B) Everyone WITHOUT a weapon is ducking, covering, hiding and/or running for their lives??
Which option do you REALLY
think is more likely??
Carry what you can shoot well. Don't worry about "over-penetration" as the odds you will encounter a need to draw, a need to shoot, a chance of striking AND
a chance of over-penetration striking another target are so infinitesimally small that you would have a better chance of getting struck by lightning WHILE winning the lottery AND sitting a top a Unicorn.
