is they mistakenly believe that the range is going to be beyond 10 ft, and they REFUSE to work up adequately effective ammo. For the inside 10 ft stuff that is what 99% of civilians will have to handle (90% of that being WITHOUT having to hit anyone with a bullet) the pistol is actually FASTER to the hit than is the shotgun, and the pistol is less likely to be grabbed by the attacker, easier to use while also calling the cops, holding a kid, flashlight, opening doors, etc.


Even guys who are adequately fast and accurate with the pistol(ie, proven A class world level competitors) worry about the pistol not having adquate power. Well, then, take a PROVEN performer as a man stopper, like the 223 softpoint in a short AR, and see how close you can come to that performance in a ccw pistol. The 70 gr Speer SP is typically 2600 fps in such a barrel, or a bit less. With the additional shock effect and tissue damage of the .460 Rowland Split Nose, being 4x as great frontal area, and having the 3 separate wound channels, you dont HAVE to have the 2500 fps (as the 70 gr Speer has at 50m, or the 2400 fps it has at 100m (from a 20" barrel) , to have the same effect as with such a 223 sp. If you are really worried about this, then you CAN use a 5" barrel to get 2400 fps, or a 6" barrel to get 2500 fps out of the 460 Rowland. :) a 6" barreled, lw Commander is STILL easier to ccw than is a 4" N framed revolvers. 70 grs, 2500 fps, is 970 ft lbs of smacking-effect.

A handgun is good as long as its used within its limitations. I personally, if the balloon ever went up want the flexibility of a rifle and a handgun. As for wildcat rounds, if you can't find them in ma & pa's hardware store in Hicksvile, wherever I'm just not interested.
