"A 9mm is fine. Size doesn't really matter. Shot placement matters. Shooting somebody in the face with a 9mm probably feels a lot like getting shot in the face with a .45....since neither one of them will survive for you to ask them how it felt, it's really a moot point. If they do survive, and they're still able to answer, cognitively, your question about how it felt, YOU DIDN'T SHOOT THEM WELL ENOUGH. Save up more money and go to a good school that teaches you to shoot better. Take shot placement over size everytime. I've never known a sniper that spent his time training to shoot a guy in the calf. A bullet is a bullet; learn to shoot for shot placement. "~ Matthew Graham
I like this guy! I've read up on him and he's the real deal. Thinking about taking one of his classes, finances depending. However you lean you have to admit it's a great answer to the debate.
