    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Just a note: .357 Mag revolvers and .357 SIG glocks are only very technically the same caliber.

    If I shoot the guy in the head after he's hit the ground, won't prosecutors try to charge me with murder or some ****? It pisses me off how you can go to jail if you don't defend yourself the "proper" way.

    You peeked my interest, can you explain further?

    Same diameter, different load entirely.

    .357 sig is like, a more stylish 9mm. .357 mag is essentially a gawd-damn hand cannon for shooting things like rhinos, or the Predator.

    A similar example: .22 short vs .22 LR vs .223 Remington vs military 5.56 NATO ammo - four bullets that are essentially the same size (diameter) but run a full gamut of performance because of their load and grain.

    Also, in the interest of your acedemic future, one's interest is "piqued"

    Depends on the circumstances. Is he just lying there and you walk over and administer the coup de gra(sp) or is he still holding the weapon in his hand?

    I don't know. I'm shooting because I want him to die without hurting me...

    Revolvers are very dependable.

    You don't have to worry about a round stovepiping on you, or some other bullshit that would get you killed.

    Oh I am well aware. I can go into the fact I just like shooting pistols better then revolvers. But when it come down it, it just not my style, my tastes probably will change in the future.
