All very true, and I will admit that a 9mm is a .45 on stun is an oversimplification, but very applicable in combat situations. After the fall of the Soviet Union they firesold their VERY good balliatic armor all over the world. Consequently our warriors never know if the guy that they have to engage will be able to fulfill his mission before letal or incapacitating force is realized. Simply put, in civilian law enforcement a 9mm is useful, but combat requires instant lethality faced with suicide bombers and fanatics that will gladly trade lives to kill a non-believer. However, being shot by a 9mm while wearing balliatic armor and living to talk about it is awesome. Man, that is experience. I am glad it had a good ending for you.

US Marine Corps Rules for Gunfighting

1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

2. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.

3. Have a plan.

4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.

5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you

6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start
with a "4."

7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)

9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.

10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

12. In ten years, nobody will remember the fight details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.
