    Some people do in fact carry four pistols. They are Pirates!
    Im glad we have the penetration results of the .45 compared to the .44 Mag through those propane tanks just in case the bad guy is charging me with a propane tank. Soft flesh.......it won’t matter if it’s a .380, 38 spl, 9mm or 454 Casul. It will penetrate and do a lot of damage or kill.

    Anyone else quadruple carry?
    That is a lot of firepower to carry, I must congratulate you on being able to do it. Where do you carry them, in a backpack?

    Don't be obtuse. The penetration ballistics of the propane tanks is just a way to illustrate how much more powerful than 45ACP a 44 Magnum round can be. However, we do apologize for
    not being able to test it on humans, for your personal edification. Suffice it to say anything which blows through 4 tanks, VS the other round denting the first tank is just a wee bit more
    powerful than "20 percent", wouldn't you say?

    Yes is definitely more powerful. Is it necessary? I’ve shot 44’s and there’s no quick follow up shot. The recoil prevents a good second shot unless you regrip. Then there’s the flash in a dark area. Don’t forget that when you shoot soft Tissue that the bullet is going to pass through and possibly hit a unintended target AKA innocent bystander. Have it your way. I’m sure these are none of the reasons why NO police force in the world Carries the 44 Mag.

    So, an attacker is going to emerge from a group of "innocent bystanders", to confront you ?

    I know someone who carries 4 guns. He's a big wuss too. He's 6 foot 300 plus pounds. Intimidating looking. But he thinks his guns will do his fighting. I just laugh at him. And he can't take any criticism. He thinks he has to have better or more than the next guy has too. He was asking my son how many guns i have now. My son said he's not sure lol.

    Take a home invasion: Someone pushes through the door and you're firing. There could be "innocent bystanders" next door or out in the yard or in a bedroom ...

    Mass shootings, by definition, have high attendance records. Robberies at stores sometimes occur when the store is open.

    Car jackings often happen on busy streets, gas stations, parking lots ...

    We are responsible for every bullet we fire, from the time it leaves the barrel to the time it stops moving, right?
