One of the leading causes of the drug epidemic, suicide epidemic, homelessness, incarceration for crime in general.

Quite literally, if a man fails to pay alimony and child support, he goes to jail. More often than not, the only way to afford alimony and child support is to commit crimes. He commits crimes, he goes to jail. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. There was literally one family court judge who told a divorced man, "I don't care how you get the money, just make sure you get it," right after the man told him there was no legally economic way he could make the payments.

This video uses the data from Greg Ellifritz's 10-year stopping power study of real-world gun fights to shed the light of actual data on several common beliefs about handgun calibers including: 22 rifles are the best bug out guns, 45s have the best stopping power, 380s are too small to be effective, 410 guns are gimmicks, and more.

Here is the link to the original data and study by Ellifritz:

For shotgun lethality, #1 or #2 shot tends to do better in tactical usage. This is mostly due to holding a tighter pattern at tactical ranges over #00. In close, #00 hits harder, and quickly degrades as distance goes up. Hot load .45 has always been a personal favorite, such as what we used in the Mk.23s. The downside is the weapon size and mass. With suppression, it was fondly known as the semi-automatic crew served handgun given it's ridiculous size.

The biggest fault I saw in the work was no accounting for experience / training levels of the operators, either in mass or by weapon type. Novices tend to move towards certain weapons in my experience. Cost being one of the larger factors. Additionally, while he touched on round types, he did not really go into it. It was more or less assumed, as things appeared, that ball ammo was the norm. Again, this is a factor driven by experience and training levels in my opinion. He also did not take into account ranges really at all. Some weapons are total crap at any distance beyond a few yards (for various reasons), while most pistol incidents tend to occur at 2 yards or less. Where they are longer, the operator, weapon, and round choice really kick in to drive the outcome. I understand that doing multiple regression was not his intent, nor did he probably have enough data to do so.
I do agree, at the end of the day, getting hit with any round is not a pleasant experience, and that real world data and other studies bear out that two hits tend to be the break point on suppression.

Apparently you can (legally) buy machine guns on the internet sans background checks or regulations; who knew?
