So if all handgun calibers are concidered weak and not that effective in stopping the bad guy why do we (self included) spend the extra money on high performance ammo? Seems we may be better off buying the more inexpnensinve types of ammo (FMJ) and getting more time behind the gun?
Everyone has an opinion. ALL handgun rounds are not weak or ineffective. I asked the same question when my agency transitioned to semi auto's; "Why not spend the money on training, that would negate the need for a higher cap pistol?" I was given the stink eye and a Beretta 96D.
