I never said that ammo choice doesn't play a part, but ammo construction is not the only factor effecting the outcome of defensive shootings. I simply said that there are folks out there who seem to think that they can compensate for poor shot placement by loading the newest "whiz-bang" design in their magazines. We've seen a little of that in this thread (whether those who've done it wish to admit it or not) and elsewhere on these forums when others quote as truthful and/or valid the thoroughly debunked "works" of Marshall & Sanow- yes, there are folks who still subscribe to this day to such nonsense.

I would hope so. I prefer to take advantage of every benefit that I can get, too, no matter how small it may seem.
