How about the Mississippi woman who was shot thru the brain with a 380 (thru & thru), survived, and then made tea for the investigating officer.
If the same shot had been made with a 9mm para bullet, which is heavier and travels significantly faster, it is likely that the victim would be immediately (and permanently) stopped.
Have carried the Sig P238, ankle BUG, but prefer the PPK in 32 ACP for that role. Better cartridge.
Carry a 9mm, 40 cal, 44 spl or 45, and survival chances improve.
For 20 years the sea was my home, always recall the sun going down, and my trusty friend, a 1911 pistol, strapped to my side.
