An interesting read

It’s from 2011 but Ben left it in comments: An Alternate Look at Handgun Stopping Power.

Basically, it asserts that handgun rounds mostly suck. A rifle is the way to go. But good luck carrying one.

    You don’t necessarily carry a rifle. You keep one in your vehicle though.

    The 357s (Mag and Sig) did look interesting.

    Yeah, I noted the no-shit factor on rifles with the stiff-legged pocket carry quip in that string.

    Still, even an LCP (or my constant tiny companion NAA22LR) beats a dull-bladed knife as in TPWGBUTB.

    “There really isn’t a “best” pistol for defense. If you want the “best”, you get a rifle. A pistol is a self-defense first-aid kit which you carry when you want to be armed but it isn’t convenient to carry your rifle … The pistol also serves as a second line of defense in case the rifle jams or runs out of ammunition. It is not a primary weapon—but it is indispensable.”*

    Always bring enough gun to a firefight. Short ‘long’ rifles, shotguns, and pistol subs might be appropriate:

    – OA-93 – Mossberg 500 – Remington 870 TAC-14
    – Uzi?

    Just don’t put a Come And Take It sticker on the window. You might think it’s a badass challenge for when you are in said vehicle. But some will think it’s an invitation for when you ain’t.
