Interesting 'stopping power' evaluation of 1800 shootings by instructor
I swiped this from another forum. It isn't a large enough sampling to answer all the questions, but the guy has a good common sense analysis of the data and the main conclusions he drew from it make sense.
What I believe that my numbers show is that in the majority of shootings, the person shot merely gives up without being truly incapacitated by the bullet. In such an event, almost any bullet will perform admirably. If you want to be prepared to deal with someone who won't give up so easily, or you want to be able to have good performance even after shooting through an intermediate barrier, I would skip carrying the "mouse gun" .22s, .25s and .32s.
