Was just thinking about shot placement... you know the sayings: "shot placement beats caliber", "A hit with a .22 is better than a miss with a .45", "a 9mm to the head is worth three .45 to the arm", etc. Well, that brings up an interesting question: lets say you're a recoil sensitive shooter and you could hit a target 10 times in under 3 seconds in the head, but due to recoil/reset you could only get 2 rounds of .40 off in the same time frame, and only COM. Which would be the better carry option? P.S. this is only hypothetical... I may not be the best shooter on the planet (far from it, actually), but I'm confident I can do 2 to the chest and 1 to the head quite well with my .40 or .45 . Just looking to see the debate it inspires. And for the sake of the argument, assume that the target is 7 yards away and moving slow enough you have time to get either off before the attacker is upon you.
