Re: what self defense caliber for crazy chimps?
Theirs alot more to stopping an animal human or otherwise , if he was shot with a 300 win mag and a full metal jacket bullet then he would last a pretty long time but if you shot him with a Mag-Safe round from a 9mm in the chest then he would expire alot faster.
If the officer was using a 45 ACP with decient hollow point ammo and hit him in the chest cavity , then the monkey was dead and dien't know it. This brings up better training for our officers , it should be automatic for sombody who is shooting a threat to place 2 shots to the chest and one to the head , commonly known as a "failure drill" or "Mozambique drill" , this is just incase the threat is wearing body armor or the bullets to the chest fail to stop the animal the third round will shut down the nervous system.
Like any animal that doesen't know he is supposed to die when their shot they can cover alot of ground in the 30 seconds it takes to die.
Think about it , just about anybody can hold their breath for 30 seconds and unless you directly stop blood from getting to the brain you won't pass out from O2 loss , the average man could probably run 200yds in 30 seconds. So if a guy of monkey gets shot them covering an average yard is no real big deal.
I personaly carry a 45 ACP in a Glock 21 pistol , more because the grip fits my bigger hands better than the 9mm and 40 cals do , I would gladly trade the very little bit of energy that the 45 offers over the 40 for 3 extra rounds !!
Again it boild down to the right bullets being used and the proper training to put those bullets where they need to go.
