A Walther PP22 is my handgun of choice.
Cute little guy. Fits right in my pocket.
I aim for the nuts if I have to use it.

If you watched the video fully, you will note that even the least of the guns featured has been known to break the odd wrist, especially when fired by less experienced users.

I'm not sure if any of those "earschplittenloudenboomer" pistols has a practical use. Even the smallest would be hard to conceal.
I just saw a video yesterday on Fox news. It was about new rifles the military is developing. They all have a larger, more powerful cartridge designed to defeat improved body armor they keep coming up with. Now I'm wondering if they will go with a heavier handgun also.

I wouldn't want a gun that could break my wrist. And like someone else mentioned by the time you overcome the recoil of the larger pistol a 9mm has fired 5 well placed shots.
I guess these big pistols are cool just for the sake of building them. You couldn't give me the pistol that it takes 2 people to carry. Its pretty much useless.
