so what? You'd rather be DEAD? .45 ball
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.
