I understand that. I'm just repeating the same bullshit the man I quoted tells people all the time. Pointing out his hypocrisy and double standards.
Why don't you instead try to discredit the peer reviewed studies dealing with handgun bullet wound mechanics instead of flinging ad-hominems that make you look uber stupid?Tell us more pistol facts,
What an interesting turn of phrasewe're dying for more of your USPSA experience.
I expected nothing less than a stupid comment from you
Tissue destruction is virtually the same for all standard handgun self defense cartridges regardless of bore size.
For the idiots in the room like you, standard means normal stuff like 38 special, 357 mag, 9x19 40 S&W, 45 ACP.
You guys should know by now not to argue with ButtPirate, he knows more than anyone on the planet about EVERYTHING!!!! I always enjoy his ridiculous comments such as "nobody cares what you think" bullshit while apparently thinking anyone cares about his opinions. Take your meds BP and have a nap now. Such a putz you are.
Folks like to get all high and mighty about how ineffective pistols are and such.
Most studies also don't take into account the differences in effectiveness for different projectile types, loadings and barrel lengths, possibly because many of the criminal class that produce much of the study material use cheap bullets.
Also the narrow focus on cavitation wounding doesn't take into account that many folks die from bleeding out because the projectile cut something important.
Regardless of what some narrow focus studies show, bullets from handguns kill lots of folks, Chicago keeps a daily count practically.
The police kill lots of folks every year with handguns
So do criminals and law abiding citizens defending themselves with handguns.
Just a bit ago someone with a compact handgun stopped a mall shooter armed with an AR type rifle, DRT
If you are going about your daily business and not looking for trouble, if trouble comes across your path, chances are it will be a handgun you have to defend yourself with.
Putting the bullet where it needs to go, is the most critical part of using a handgun, so carry what you can confidently control.
Precise aiming under movement and stress and a 2 way range is a lot more difficult.
Plenty of folks die from getting shot with a .22LR and bleeding out before they get to the hospital, you just usually want your attacker to stop a bit quicker.
But a person shooting .22LR HV rounds that knows how to put them exactly where they want under stress isn't at as much of a disadvantage as many think.
Some calibers with more penetration potential will be more effective in situations where penetrating through a barrier or when the bullet has to travel a longer ways through dense parts of the body to get to something that will cause the target to bleed out.
Folks can wax lyrical all day about how nothing beats a rifle, sure but you'll find carrying that rifle around constantly during daily work, trips, etc is realistically not going to happen for folks leading a normal life.
By my reading, not any more so than this:Is this some sort of justification for carrying a 22 LR pistol?
I understand your sarcasm and apparent beef with 308pirate in saying this, but...
Not that I would advocate a 22LR of any sort as someone's primary carry weapon, especially if they are more than capable of carrying and handling at least a 380 or 9mm, but I've yet to find any willing volunteers to act as real life guinea pigs to prove the supposed inefficacy of the 22LR as a potential self defense cartridge.
It's really strange...seems like people, in general, would rather be shot by nothing at all.
Is this some sort of justification for carrying a 22 LR pistol?
I had shield arms mags. I didn’t have reliability problems other than failure to lock back which isn’t that big of a deal to me personally. My gripe with them was I sweat like a pig in summer and the tended to rust but still fed fine.What are the better mags?
