which is PLENTY hard enough! You can have 70 gr split noses at 2200 fps from a lw .45, ccw pistol and have less recoil than .45 ball ammo. 750 ft lbs per hit two massive wound channels per hit, with the temporary cavity destroying any vital organs "caught" between those diverging wound channels. If the pistol's enough when you're away from home, WHY aint it enough when you're home, eh? Cause you carry a wussy load and aint very good with it?
