Stopping Power: A Practical Analysis of the Latest Handgun Ammunition

Evan P. Marshall & Edwin J. Sanow

Stopping PowerIf you want to know how handgun ammunition will work against human targets in the future, you must look at how similar ammo has worked against human targets in the past. This is exactly what Evan P. Marshall and Edwin J. Sanow did with the release of their seminal books Handgun Stopping Power in 1992 and Street Stoppers in 1996. Now, they continue their groundbreaking work in Stopping Power: A Practical Analysis of the Latest Handgun Ammunition. Many useful facts can be gathered at autopsy tables and in laboratory experiments, but they cannot account for the dynamics of an actual gunfight or the varied reactions of criminals who get struck by bullets. Like its best-selling predecessors, Stopping Power takes these factors into consideration and bases its conclusions on real-world facts from real-world armed encounters. It provides the latest street results of actual police and civilian shootings in all of the major handgun calibers, from .22 LR through .45 ACP, plus more than 30 chapters of vital interest to all gun owners, including: the results of brand-new ammunition test protocol of the U.S. Border Patrol, which is involved in more gunfights than any other federal law enforcement agency the emergence of the hot new police caliber, the .357 SIG, as a potent man stopper, as well as the continued success of the .40 S&W on the streets the story behind the development of the latest exotic ammunition, including the .400 Cor-Bon, Triton .40 Super, and 5.7 x 28mm street results for major rifle and shotgun loads, short-barrel handgun ballistics, and an enlightening chapter predicting the effectiveness of black powder firearms The only thing worse than being involved in a gunfight is losing one. The information contained in this book will help you choose the right bullets for your gun so you don't lose.
