no one keeps coming with a shattered pelvis
What SD handgun has sufficient power to reliably shatter a pelvis?

And as previously noted, there are even more blood vessels in the chest, and they are even larger than any in the pelvis.

Arteries get smaller as you move away from the heart, and veins get larger as you move towards the heart.

To speak nothing of actually striking the heart that makes the whole thing work.
I tend to agree. The thing about a pelvis shot is that only certain areas will stop mobility every time. That area is the hip joint. I'm not sure about the pistols ability to completely disable a hip. but I am sure of the rifles ability. Blow out that hip joint, and he's going nowhere. Small target though.
