Ask viewers at teddyruxpinonline.org if they support their character’s return to store shelves and DVD and you can bet the answer would be largely positive. Ask the average person and they’d say huh? By the same token, if you ask the firearms-crazed (in a good way) readers at gunreports.com if they think that a 9mm cartridge has enough bullet to stop the bad guys (offering them $225 Insight Technology X2l Subcompact Laser/Light MTV-100-A1 to share with the group) and it’s ba-da-ba-ba-BA. “Overwhelmingly, the responses said the 9mm was a suitable handgun defense round,” GunReports.com’s content administrator Scott Freigh reports. Given that 9mm is the most popular handgun round, well, they would say that wouldn’t they? Freigh will tally the total later. For now, he’s slightly puzzled. “Oddly, however, many of the pro-9 voters said they carried 40s and 45s.” The devil’s in the word “suitable.” (Hint: suitable for whom? When it comes to self-defense rounds, there’s kill and there’s overkill. A lot of gun slingers would rather be oversafe than sorry.
