    I would rather use MY bullet fired from MY pistol not because of caliber, but because of familiarity. Greater chance of getting the round where it needs to go.

    zackmars,

    Fyi, our department did NOT issue Golden Saber to the LEO (FEMALE), who were issued a 9mm handgun. Remington 124 grain JHP "police only" ammo was "issue"- Thus, I don't know anything about the 9mm loading.

    I note that you didn't say how many autopsies that you have attended. - I probably have OBSERVED > 100 such procedures over the years.

    yours, satx

    I'm off to wander aimlessly around the forum and see what else is here. Good night all.

    Ha! You'll forgive my heresy if I question the conclusions of your "critical thinking" when they are couched in specific assumption. Were all the world as you imagine perhaps it would be so.

    I've at least offered up sources for my claims. Unlike the garbage that comes out of your face.

    Keep it civil gents. Decent info in this thread beyond the 9mm vs .45 ad nauseam debate.

    DyeF9,

    Indeed you did but your main sources are from the OFTEN DISHONEST FBI & thus "of questionable veracity", at best.

    As I've said, I TRUST experiences of EXPERCEINCED combat soldiers, who have actually FOUGHT an armed enemy with handguns "up close & personal", above any THEORY.
    (I'd bet that less than 5% of FBI agents have EVER been a real gunfight.)
    Otoh, many GIs that I served with OCONUS were IN actual gunfights at least once a week & some few every day.
    (When we were "way down there", our BN's "NIGHT PATROL" was in shoot-outs with the terrorists for 98 straight nights.= I lost a bet that "shooting incidents" would exceed 100 nights in a row.)

    yours, satx
