The Miami shootout could have gone better in so many ways,

I have thought that if Jerry Dove had been using FMJ instead of a hollow point, his shot would have probably penetrated at least an additional inch and punctured Michael Platt's heart - killing him, and maybe the 40 S&W would never have been invented. Maybe the FBI would still be using 9mm today.

Just think about it - the regular 115gr FMJ bullets that most people practice with would have done better on that cross-shot than the Silvertip - no fault of the Silvertip, it behaved basically the way it was designed to. It exapanded, it didn't over penetrate.

But basically if the Miami shootout hadn't gone so badly - departments today would probably be using 9mm, .45 ACP, 38 spl and .357 magnum.
