Ever since I worked a shooting where a guy got an entire load of 00 buck in the chest and ran cursing for 100 yards until expiring my faith in ANY handgun round has been kinda suspect
What was the load ( full power or reduced recoil)? What was the distance? I ask because all 00 buck is not created equal. Even 00 loses effect at more that 15-20 yards, remember each projectile counts as its own, so each is a 32 cal lead ball.
