    Nice read, thanks! I try to go with penetration when it comes to carry. I stick with the FBI thought process when it come to carry.

    Very interesting, especially the part about the one stop shots because the person doesent want to be shot anymore. Makes sense.

    A lot of people talk it up about the mythical 'one shot stop'...but that all goes out the window when you pull the trigger multiple times.

    One well placed shot and it is all moot.....It would be even more interesting if he had mentioned the age,sex and skill levels of the participants he interviewed....This might account for the difference in the total shots fired..

    How about the 'one stop shots' in the movies where the bad guy is blown back a few feet?

    Or where it looks like they got shot in the stomach and grab their heart area and take 5 minutes to fall.........

    The only thing I wish he had managed to get into the equation is the bullet weights in each caliber. I wonder how the slower heavier bullets performed versus their faster lighter counterparts.
