Things that were apparent to me:
1. Very little difference in the performance of the pistol rounds.
2. 5.56mm REALLY hurts and creates a huge temporary wound channel when (and if) it fragments.
3. 7.62x39 doesn't fragment, but it really penetrates - it was the only round he couldn't recover.
Don't be overly impressed by the handgun dents, we are really very squishy in nature and can handle much bigger body intrusions than that. Many
people shot with 9mm/40/45 when wearing a vest don't even realise they were hit until after the noise stops.
