@ Tolik,

Don’t mean to pick a fight, since you seem to be a pretty cool guy and post good posts, but just because something has been used in battle doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any good. Just to play Devil’s Advocate…

Remember Black Jack Pershing dealing with the Moros in the Philippines? They were using the .38 Spl against the Moros and it was so ineffective against stopping them it got people killed. Which is why they went back to the creaky old .45 Colt – it would lay a whoopin’ on that a$$ and stop them cold. Which is also why the .45 ACP was king of the bean hill for 70-some years…

Or the .30 Carbine round? My daddy fought in Korea. He said the Chinese had these heavy winter coats and when our guys would shoot them squarely with the 30 Carbine, it couldn’t penetrate their winter clothing… what kind of battle cartridge can’t penetrate a winter coat? That’s just sad. And they weren’t even far away… they were right over there.. and that 30 Carbine round did diddly squat…

Don’t misinterpret me as bagging on what you choose to use… just saying that just because something was used in a war somewhere doesn’t mean it’s any good… plenty of bad ideas out there have been foisted on guys sent to fight…

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
