Handgun Calibers
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? ...
I think you answered your own question. The reason most shooters buy expensive handgun ammo is precisely because we don't necessarily trust basic FMJ Ball ammo in terms of 'stopping-power.' Look at some of the gelatin ballistic tests and make a determination concerning which one you go with (only, of course, after you are confident that your gun will reliably cycle it if you're using a semi-auto).
