Only A Slight Exaggeration

When I call .25 ACP a proven manstopper, I am not entirely unserious.

The lowly .25 has killed lot of people.

This is mostly because of whom carried the things and where they carried them.

.25 ACP guns in the USA have a reputation for being the guns that criminals carried in their pockets, and had that reputation for decades.  Unlike a lot of reputations, this one was somewhat earned.

It's proof that shot placement matters and that medical care for traumatic injuries has improved by orders of magnitude since the .25 was a light, but serious, self-defense cartridge.
