What I don't like sometimes is the hardware the cops carry. The normal sherriffs around here use 41 magnums with hydroshocks.

OK, so you need to shoot someone. You did not need to blow a hole in them the size of a basketball.

If you were a combatant in a war, you'd probably get shot with full metal jackets. However as civilians, we don't get the luxury of the geneva convention.

I think my Walther .380 would stop you if you were a bad guy, and you would still have a pretty good chance of survival. I know it would be easier to deliver non-lethal force. It might also be easier to "shoot to kill" because of increased accuracy.
