We didn't notice any setback, but we have a limited amount of ammo to use.
BTW...part two should be filming tomorrow.

We didn't get it done that day but a few days later, as my partner in this video came down sick. So, back to the original post and you can find the second video. It was fun, hope you like it.

Thanx for making and posting the follow-up video.  My original conclusion is hence re-inforced.

I think I'll stick to the .45 ACP when I want to shoot 185 grain Bullets.
My preference for the 124 and 135 grain Bullet weights in 9mm remains.
"Easy is the path to wisdom for those not blinded by ego." - Yoda


For all of those killed by a 9mm: "Get up! You are not dead! You were shot with a useless cartridge!"

1. Expensive
2. Over-penetration
3. Little expansion
4. Keyholing

Not seeing the upside here. Glad you tested it for us!

EDIT: ASP is located in Phoenix, AZ -- y'all might want to collaborate on a Round 3!

Hmm, never heard of them. I am willing to bet they don't want to "work" with an amateur like me. :) I just know we had poor luck, but if I get some more opportunities I still have several rounds left.

He puts up a fair amount of self-defense shooting videos on facebook for lessons learned.  Watch a couple a week for a few years now.

Info on the founder who does the vids: https://activeselfprotection.com/our-owner-and-founder-john-correia/

Apparently does some LE training, including some sort of video training listed on his bio.

Never hurts to connect!
