I carry a .40 for most of my secondary weapon needs.
Yeah, well, I don't think overpenetration will be a negative aspect of handgun cartridges once the Army gets all their computerized electronic satellite-based targeting IFF GPS abacus crap online.
For right now, though, I suppose you wouldn't want that sort of frienly fire. I thought soldiers would be coordinated enough to avoid emerging on opposite sides of the target. If a pistol round will go through him, what about your rifles?
