Dave Spaulding discusses the stopping power with various caliber sizes for the pistol. Drawing on real world experience, his own thesis and autopsy results... Dave offers some interesting insights.
I thought this was worth posting

I like that three shot drill but most indoor ranges frown on three shot bursts

I haven't found that to be true in any range I have visited. Most frown on unloading an entire magazine in 3 seconds, but if you are drilling they have no problems. My new range rents full autos so most people unload an entire magazine in under 3 seconds anyway. I don't think I have seen anyone there with a full auto running controlled fire, they just let it rip. Ohh the good times :)

Three ranges I visit here in the DFW area all have signs that say no more than two round bursts and some of them want a delay in between shots.
There is a new range in FTW that allows drawing from a holster and rapid fire but you have to rent a "private suite"(23.00 an hour) and on the weekends they are backed up with people waiting.
There has been a couple of times I was asked to slow down because I was shooting to fast (for them)

That’s part of living in a big city and ranges having to deal with the wide verity of people, not to mention the anti's accusing them military training. When I was in a private gun club we weren’t allow wearing commo’s on the range or shooting silhouette targets for that very reason. I am looking forward to going to FTW and shooting at the private suits gun range but its some 45 miles away and it take a lot of the day just to shoot an hour

I'm a member of the largest indoor range in the country and I'm happy to say we have none of those restrictions. We also have 3 other indoor ranges and 2 public outdoor and 3 private outdoor clubs in my area and they are non restrictive. The one on the Military base has caliber restrictions but that's about it.

That's a great situation to have, ZK

My indoor range rents bump stocks and recently got their class III - they like it fast :)
