“The Best Handgun Caliber In The World”
This is a great video that deserves some attention; a data compilation and analysis of real-world handgun shootings. It examines their effectiveness when weighed against other pistol calibers, and against rifles and shotguns.
I thought I’d share these pix with you from a recent trip to the public range. These are the 300 yard rifle gong’s after several seasons of hard pounding. It’s amazing that hard armor plates can be defeated by soft lead

In Review: 10mm Auto From DoubleTap
