:roll:In the hands of a novice shooter, as NEWSWEEK's Raina Kelley discovered at a Connecticut gun range last week, it delivers a fearsome kick, which leads to anticipatory flinching, causing the barrel to drop and the shot to miss low.
The 1986 Miami shootout showcased the shortcomings of the 9mm. The 115 gr Silvertips failed to stop the shooters. The agent had to finish the guy off with six shots of .38 spc. Every single argument the against the 9mm for SD always went back to this shooting. I guess he conviently" forgot" to include that the 9mm was involved in this shootout. This is the reason we have the 10mm and .40 S&W today folks.Foul said:"Two agents (as well as the suspects) were killed, leading to a demand for more firepower for officers, who still typically carried the venerable .38-caliber Police Special. Those hold six bullets in a rotating cylinder that when empty has to be reloaded manually, one round at a time."
Any credibility that MIGHT have been contained in that article was completely lost by this one BS statement alone.
Another f***tard writing about something of which he knows squat.
I am a 9mm man but.......Rammstein said:Virginia Tech.
9 is fine.
I understand that but what I am saying is how many of these people died from less accurate shot placement that bled to death because time ran out? How many of these people could have still been in the fight for a while? (If VT had gave them that option :evil: ) In my opinion, the 9mm is still not a gamma death ray, nor really is any handgun for that matter just because of the VT shooter.Rammstein said:It's not the size of the hole, it is where you place them,
You can shoot a man in the toe with a .22 or a .45, but it won't stop the fight.
