Imagine the stories going around among the terrorists right now. God has abandoned us, these Americans cant be stopped. We also carry 45s HK USP 45s to be exact, theory is carry the fire support, dont call fo it later. Big Slow bullet means big bloody hole=threat stopped sooner.

THis is great! Reminds me why old army guys always say don't bring a gun to a gunfight unless it's chamered in a round that starts with a 4... :)

Although there may be some obscure manufacturer, I only know of the .50 AE for the Desert Eagle, and I sure as Hell ain't takin' that battle axe to a gun fight. I'd probably run out of breath pulling it out of my holster! :lol:

Heck with Kevlar, I want an enamel vest...

As Shikaku said..."Look ma, no cavities!" strong teeth are good in many ways. Still, even though I have heard similar 9mm woes and have seen some sorry performance out of some truncated FMJs I wonder what kinda crap-o ammo a hadji uses....BC or Brian.Phinney, can ya help me out?

great story

just goes to show how worthless the 9mm is. i have heard storys of officers doing enterys and the front man with the sheild is carrying a 9mm. a pitbull in the house came after him and the officer unloaded an entire mag into the dog and the dog was still coming.

What happened was called energy transfer... the bullet hit him in the upper gum area and hit the roots of his tooth... transfering the energy from the bullet to the tooth... stoping the bullet instantly and causing the tooth to shoot out. Now... since it was a relativly light weith ( 115gr) bullet... im not surprised that happened. Now... if it was a 230gr bullet... it would have done the same thing with the exception of it still would have kept on going after it shot the tooth out like a rocket from his gums. I have used 9mm pistols over sea's before and seen what they can do... i have seen what 40 SW caliber pistols can do... and i have seen what .45 Auto caliber pistols can do... so far i like the .45 Auto. With REALLY good ammo... the .40 SW is dang close to a .45 Auto in ability.

It was a fluke. Could have happened so many different ways, if the bullet had hit the tooth at a different angle, if the terrorist had aimed differently, if the 9mm bullet was heaver and had more momentum, anything. What saved that man was a matter of millimeters, not the choice of caliber. Could happen with an even smaller caliber that it would punch right through the tooth. Or the terrorist could have fired again.

9mm ain't purely the culpret anyway.

good story

muzzleblast:
no, not 100% the 9mm's fault but still i think a .44 mag woulda ripped right through the tooth ;) ok you wont be using a .44 mag though
as far as a .45 goes- a 9mm can knock ya down in 1 hit, a .45 can knock ya down in 1 hit, which is more likely to do so
and most importantly- when your firing it, which is most likley to hit them and then knock them down
