Sure, James Bond carried that .32 Walther PP - but he only faced enemies using blanks! So avoid all those new tiny .32 semis.
Yes if you are ever in a gun battle, a larger caliber is best.
WE are talking here about self defense. Just flashing a gun will send 99.5% of felons running. Therefore, that last .5% where meet all of the 5 rules, and end up in a gun fight, yes take
and gentle squeeze
as poster #9 suggests.
An SC LEO pulled me over a while back for traveling many decibels above the post limit on a deserted back road. He asked me if I was carrying, when I produced a CWP. "Yes" and then he asked me what. I told him a .32 auto. He promptly went into a lecture on how I should be carrying at least a 9mm. He didn't ticket me, even though he could have impounded my car. Then came the stearn warning, "Get rid of the mouse gun." I did.
I cant think of anyone, EVER!, who was shot 3 times in the chest, and 3 times in the face, with a Beretta Tomcat shooting winchester silvertips that would voluntar to be shot again by a .32.
Would YOU?, not be afraid of someone who is pointing a Beretta Tomcat at your face??
Do you have ANY statistics on how many criminals were undeterred after being shot 6 times with .32 winchester silvertips?
Nothing smaller than 9mm
