I Thought I Had Miserable Luck...

...but some guys just have worse luck than mine - much, much, much worse than mine.

None of my girlfriends ever had one of those, at least not attached to them!

A hat tip to Enrique P for this one.

All the best,

9mm Penetration At Distance

The guys at Iraqveteran8888 certainly do up some excellent videos for YouTube. Their channel is one of the very few YouTube channels to which I subscribe. If you carry a 9mm pistol for self defense and or if you utilize a 9mm carbine for the same purpose, you may want to give a watch to one of their latest videos:  How Far Will a 9mm Kill? (Note I condone shooting to stop as I imagine do they and they are not condoning shooting to kill in this video, just telling you at up to what distances they believe the 9mm could be lethal.)

While it may not be the most scientific of studies, it certainly should allow you to see that the 9mm can be lethal at decent distances for a pistol round. Anyone who, after seeing this video, wants to claim that a 3/4" thick plywood target and a 2x4" board do not replicate a human body would be correct; but anyone who thinks that a 9mm round, at 200 yards fired from a pistol or at 440 yards fired from a carbine, could not crack open your coconut (the one sitting on your neck) is a fool.
