Here @ Guffaw in AZ, well welcome all comers with reasoned arguments. I ran across this on the Internet, however and it gave me pause.
Is THIS a reasoned argument?
Now, personally, I’m a fan of heavy, slow .45 ACP rounds. 230 grain, anyway, modern hollow point preferred.
(but ball will do in a pinch!). I DO understand that .357 loads used in the city will penetrate people, buildings, most car doors. So my preference is for .45 ACP and .38 Special. For the urban environment, anyway. Recognizing that a 12 gauge is better, but less socially acceptable. And perhaps more difficult to conceal.
Anyway, this intrigued me, at least as an intellectual exercise. I’m certain that Jeff Cooper, John Thompson and Julian Hatcher are spinning in their graves.
