A few 32's to YOUR chest and you'd need a new heart and lungs - then you would deflate like one of those big gorilla ballons on top of the stores. Easy to step aside and trip you as you make your final dying lurch.

You're losing grasp of reality, andy.

Then the .22LR is even more pointless, isn't it? It's got even less (substantially less) power than the 'wimpy .32'.

If by "blow to the chest", you mean a fist, kick, whatever, that's an incorrect statement. A "dozen little wimpy .32's" is anywhere from 1,400 to 1,800 ft/lbs of energy deposited (your favorite criteria), not to mention the resulting perforated organs, blood loss, etc.

How is 1,600 ft/lbs from one gun great, and from another gun, a joke?

The same way a miss from a .44 Magnum is better than a hit from a .22, John. Also the same way any 9mm is useless except if it's a surplus, cobbled up, non-plus P Star BM. Then it becomes perfect. The same way a Makarov, even with 115 Gr HP's is a completely useless, underpowered gun, but the .22 Phoenix Arms HP is perfect as a carry gun. I could go on and on.
