Good article, including what bullet design seems best for big stuff:
Nearly every report that I have seen where a handgun was used
successfully to stop a large bear the ammunition being used was a flat
point hard cast lead bullet or less often a full metal jacket flat nose
bullet. Handgun ammunition carried for defense against an attack by a
large bear should be capable of 4 to 6 feet of penetration. Typical
jacketed hollow point ammunition used for self-defense against human
attackers usually penetrates 1 to 1.5 feet which is unsatisfactory in
the predator defense role.
Which sounds much like what I've read of going after big stuff in Africa: for the most part solid bullets that won't expand, that can penetrate heavy hide and muscle and bone to reach a vital point.
More of the colleges that let the screamers take over need to suffer this; hurting their pocket seems to be the one thing that really gets their attention.
As predicted, last year’s racial uprising has cost the University of Missouri close to a quarter of its freshmen class, leaving the school worse off than it had initially anticipated.
Awful lot of people looked at that mess and said "You want us to pay that much per year for THIS?", and went somewhere else.
Same thing for male students suing over discrimination and lack of due process: hit the bastards in their money supply, and just maybe they'll start paying attention.
And if the SJW types speak of it, they'll blame just about anything except the gangs and politicians responsible. Because blaming guns is far easier than actually DOING SOMETHING.
A 24-year-old man was killed and a 23-year-old man was grazed by a
bullet in a shooting in the West Lawn neighborhood late Wednesday night,
capping off the most violent month in Chicago in 20 years.
Chicago police said there were 90 homicides in August, and a total of
472 people shot in 384 separate attacks. The city has not had that many
murders in one month since August 1996.
