Dragline and others thanks for a fast response. I may not have been clear enough. I can place my shots center mass in groups of 2 to 3 inches out to about 15 yrds. Range i practice the most at. And can do it with a revolver or a pistol once im used to it.
That being said point is unless i go for a head shot center mass is likely going to have to punch thru at least one and probably two layers 1.5 mill top grain heavy leather. Likely in cold weather added layers of clothing under that.
Not that I expect to have to shoot anyone Im around but should it happen i would hate find out then that im shooting bbs at an elephant.
Shooting up a 400 dollar leather riding jacket really isnt something I relish doing either to find out the answer to my question
