If the range is within 40 metres I would anyday prefer a 9mm or .45. The stopping power and wound ballistics are really impressive. And this question is not stupid, this is good discussion.@AVINASH4061 sir,
Another stupid question from a clueless civilian if you'd be so kind.
You mention bad guys running for hundreds of metres before collapsing. Would a 9mm or .45ACP or a bigger round, even with a smaller casing as is in the case of 9x19 put them down faster if in range?
Also, is this why SMGs are preferred at closer ranges?
I always thought this talk of "stopping power" on gun forums and all stemmed from USA's outdated analysis of their experience in Phillipines.
