Ya know... there is ALOT of talk about "stories" of guys being hit multiple times by a 9mm/.38/.40S&W and even a .50 (not kidding... the internet produces great rumors) and still surviving and many use that as a basis to insist bigger is better. And, alot of gun snobs will use this to demean an alternative caliber like the Makarov for being a "womans" round (which makes NO sense) or being something that will only "piss off" an attacker.I wouldn't carry 9mm, I've heard of people being shot multiple times with it and they would still chase their "victim" and I'm talking 3 shots to the chest and such.
But not all of us can get military training! Even so, you pop someone three times in the chest with just about anything and the average bad guy will vacate the premises most riki tick! Put three 9mm rounds center mass (especially a good PD round) and the only thing left to do is clean your weapon and your floors!Don't forget military training and you will be fine, 3 shots center mass and one in the head, that should do it for anyone no matter what drugs they could be on.
But when it comes to shot placement how is three to the chest not good enough even with 9mm?
