    Lucky Gunner has an interesting section with ballistic gel testing.

    I would not be hesitant to bet my life on any weapon I am proficient with.

    Oh, a handgun WILL kill someone.
    But if he is very motivated, or high on something like meth, he will have plenty of time to kill you too.

    To be sure, a rifle is the best bet.
    But they are not convenient to carry around, and not all states allow it.

    What do you think a handgun, any handgun, would do to someone like this CMOHS.org - Second Lieutenant BOBO, JOHN P., U.S. Marine Corps
    This is one I picked at random from the list, there are some truly heroic stories on this site. I urge every American to read some of them.

    With a 22 lr multiple consistent head shots should be possible for someone who trains and proficient with that firearm.
    Don't care what they are on take out the computer the system shuts down.

    That being said 22 lr still wouldn't be my first second or third choice however if need be

    In the marina I rented a slip for years in San Fransicko there were abandoned derelict boats that they couldn’t even lien sale for they really had no value. I used to joke that it would be cool to take them 20/25 miles out, aim west and see how many rounds it would take to sink them. I was pretty sure such an event would garnish a pretty decent sum / pay day from others interested in shooting up sailboats. I’ve always known my Beneteau would never stop a bucket even a 22. But still it’d be intriguing to see for real. In the city, my condo, was brick and mason work. I always thought that’d hold up pretty good.

    Better than a 2x6 wood framed one anyway. I looked at just about every form of house construction (geodesic dome, concrete block, steel frame, SIP, straw bale, etc) before we built our home, and Insulated Concrete Form won out. Not that ICF was better in every category for the features I wanted but it ranked high in every one. Ballistic protection is one category where it was the best (within our budget anyway), and it's very comforting to sleep behind 8" of reinforced concrete. I do wish I'd used ICF for the interior bedroom walls, not perfect but a good start for a safe/panic room.

    Vid testing wood frame, brick, and ICF walls against firearms and explosives.
