Always good to get first-hand reports and get back to first principles. An EMT, trauma tech and combat medic who's seen hundreds of gunshot wounds (371) passes on his observations. To wit, there's no such thing as a Hollywood one-shot pistol stop. And bigger IS better.

Fascinating and sobering reading. Recommended for those that might have to employ a firearm in defense of loved ones or themselves.
