    A 9mm or even 10mm typically isn't enough for a male pitbull on PCP. What you want is a 40mm. With extra magazines incase he's in a pack (they usually are).

    Is this a multiple choice question?
    You are a straight white man. You don't get to be the victim, sweetie.

    9mm vs. bear:
    black bear in you trash-Maybe
    grizzley going after you- NO

    9mm vs. pit bull:
    Unless dog supernatural- yes if you do your job

    9mm vs. 300 lb attacker (human):
    Assuming normal person and shot placement in the A zone- yes (most of the time)

    Variables include size of target, type of ammo (fmj is notorious for wounding, not killing), and other issues such as rage, drug use and health.

    9 mm probably. 9 cm definitely!
    A Russian tale: Prince Igor is hunting in the woods in the dead of winter. The icy wind makes his eyes tear. A bird turns to another bird and says,"Look! He's crying!" The other bird says,"Don't watch his eyes, watch his hands."

    There are a handful of 9mm loads that have a long and distinguished record of stopping with one shot. My favorite is the old Federal 9BPLE: 115 gr. JHP @1,300 ft/s. It was used by the ISP for many years, and nobody ever complained about stopping power. It was also used by quite a few other police dept., with zero complaints. Street proven round.
