There is no substitute for a well placed shot. It doesn't matter how big or how small the bullet is if it doesn't hit a vital spot!

I have been shot several times with a .68 caliber paintball, and that is as far as I care to go with it! I really don't want to be hit by flying metal of any composition or caliber.

There's a guy with a You-tube channel, USOG, that has a simple philosophy; "send mass". I like that. ::nod::

I used to have a small poster that said,
.45 ACP because shooting twice is just silly.
