    .45 centered tends to put em down, just takes one, as a rule.

    On the internet and in gun shops, yes.

    In the real world, no.

    Well, my brother was an Oakland cop. When he finished the academy I gave him a SIG P220 in .45.

    When he was a rookie, he and his Field Training Officer responded to a domestic and he was attacked with a knife. One 230-grain Hydra-Shock center-chest on the target ended the fight.

    Saw this image shared on a Facebook page. I criticized his holster here because I have used some less-stellar ones and because of that, I now appreciate certain features in a holster. However, some of the comments on that post are just plain stupid. Like someone complaining that he can carry whatever he wants but a "Joe" can't...

    LOL. I'll think about it ..... Thank you. I'll let you see it if I'm in the area or if you're down my way.

    Completely anecdotal. The ineffectiveness and inconsistency of essentially all handgun rounds is well documented. Shot placement and ammunition selection are the critical, deciding factors. It sounds like your brother nailed the shot placement part.

    You have a better than 70% chance of surviving being shot with a handgun regardless of caliber. The reverse is true for rifle or shotgun.

    Ive not been impressed by most non-CNS pistol wounds Ive seen, generally. Regardless of caliber. They have a tendency to live at least into surgery, and many have ok outcomes.

    The Burner grips and S&A magwell lead me to believe he's mighty nostalgic.
