    Are there any professional testing of the .380 round? None if those links refer to actual numerical tests, just that tests have shown it to be unreliable. What tests are they referring to?

    Please explain how shooting a perp robbing a restaurant is self defense. Sine you've clearly demonstrated your incredible incompetence when handling a situation on your own property as well as numerous other scenarios it's obvious that any advice from you is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine but I'd like to hear it anyway. I enjoy comedy.

    When you're one of the patrons of the restaurant being robbed at gun point.

    Does this forum have moderators? Other gun forums I enjoy seem to squash the bickering where it goes on for days here. I don't mind, I'm just wondering. If people want to go back and forth at each other more power to you.

    I like the Corbon self-defense for my LCP (with Lasermax). As someone else posted, I would hate for somebody to be shooing AT ME with it. I know the debate is if bad guy is doped up, strung out, drunk or just plain a bad *** then everybody wants a .45 stopping power. As always the debate of size vs practicality of carry. Here in FL, especially in Summer, kinda hard to hide the goods!

    I have Golden Sabre in 102grn loading. There is a video on You Tube showing the performance of the gold Sabre though four layers of jeans, calibrated gelatin and behind all that, four water jugs.
    The hollow point got stuffed so it went through the jeans, gelatin and the fist water jug! All for a total of over nineteen inches of penetration
    These little bad boys dig deep into a person!! I know that the hollow point didn't expand as it should in this test but if your worried about digging deep into the bad guy, it will plow through summer clothing with no problem.

    Don't be fooled people, this freak couldn't care less if his bullets hit a bad guy or just someone he disagrees with. He should be banned.
    I pray for peace. Peace and justice. If we can't have both, I choose justice.
