An Alternate Look at Handgun Stopping Power | Buckeye Firearms Association

Very interesting look at handgun stopping power.  I’m actually working on something similar but this fellow presents the results of 10 years of data gathering, pretty impressive!

An Alternate Look at Handgun Stopping Power

I've been interested in firearm stopping power for a very long time. I remember reading Handguns magazine back in the late 1980s when Evan Marshall was writing articles about his stopping power studies. When Marshall's first book came out in 1992, I ordered it immediately, despite the fact that I was a college student and really couldn't afford its $39 price tag. Over the years I bought all of the rest of Marshall's books as well as anything else I could find on the subject. I even have a first edition of Gunshot Injuries by Louis Lagarde published in 1915.
