    Handgun stopping power?

    A Philadelphia man made it to the ER under his own power after being shot 15 times with what police described as a “large caliber” handgun.

    The importance of shot placement can not be overemphasized.

    It's been said here many times, unless it's a CNS hit, the only stopping power a handgun has is psychological.

    Or in a place that causes rapid blood loss - i.e. severing an artery.
    To speak without thinking is to shoot without aiming.

    It can and most of the time will have "stopping power." May just not be in the timely nature that you need it to "stop" the threat! Left un-treated, a gunshot will stop ya "eventually!"

    I train to the zipper shot placement theory! Start center mass and next shot is aimed up that center line! Subsequent shots make it up toward the head!
