Have you ever shot a 9mm x25mm?? 10 years ago I shot IPSC in Saskatchewan with a guy who used one. He needed both ear plugs and ear defenders! Try that in combat without ear protection and you are deaf in seconds! Wannabe.
is VERY capable of deafening you, too, bozo. I've had a HOT 110 gr 357 reload, 4" barrel, get turned loos inside a vehicle with me (both windows down, tho) with the muzzle pointed right beside me, and only 2 ft from my ear) As pathetic as most handgun loads are on even SMALL dogs, there's no reason to expect them to be worth a crap against serious men. So you HAVE to either go with a really mean (loud) load, or trust to LUCK to stop the man. You favor the latter, because you are a <font color=red>[**censored**]</font> with no experience at being attacked. I have been attacked, or NEARLY attacked, a dozen or more times, so I"m a LOT more serious about it.
