The only thing I have against .40 is if someone claims its better.
The whole thing reminds me of a I Spy episode (though you have to go back some ways to remember that one!) Not space-squids so I think I am ok on this.
Robert Culp and Bills Cosby got into a big pistol fight with the bad guys in the Coliseum. Lots of shots fired, nothing happens. Bad guys get away
Now, for those who do not know, Culp carried a long barreled 45 Auto Rim in S&W (I am doing this from memory so.....)
Anyway, he looks at Cosby and says, I need to get a bigger gun.
Cosby says, huh, why?.
Culp says, I couldn't hit anything, I need a bigger gun.
