    Within the lightning of realization
    I'm reminded of the time I was away attending a couple of classes, and a young and earnest cop in the class asked the instructor what he considered to be "stopping power".

    The very seasoned and experienced instructor (from a fed agency) walked up to the young fellow, and pushing against the fellow's forehead with the palm of his hand, answered that "stopping power" was putting a pair of 12 ga 1-oz slugs into someone's forehead. Guess he didn't think just one slug qualified for the definition. Dunno.

    The young cop looked a bit surprised and disappointed. I guess he might have been thinking the answer would involve the use of some handgun round ...

    I prefer the 10 mm because it holds more rounds and it also works fairly well as a trail gun. But in a SD situation with a BG, I suspect that if you can't get the job done with a .45, you're probably not going to be able to get it done with a 10 mm either.
