Not that I am asking it.

I stumbled across this today and thought I would share it with all. It is from 2011 so may have already been discussed. I will cut to the chase for you and then you can go read it yourself. In the end the author says:

Take a look at the data. I hope it helps you decide what weapon to carry. No matter which gun you choose, pick one that is reliable and train with it until you can get fast accurate hits. Nothing beyond that really matters!

My usual answer to that question is "yes". :troll:

The author is spot on. You fight how you train.

The beard (Chris Costa) says the same thing. Pick the largest caliber that you can shoot quickly and accurately.
