When using a handgun for personal defense it's critical to use the largest gun that you can handle.
Some pistols are too much for most men, like the TC contender, the world's most powerful handgun
This is hilarious, a fellow underestimating the recoil of a monster 60 caliber TC contender!
However, it takes lots of practice to manage the heavy "kick" and it takes time to quickly re-acquire the target after each shot.
Below, we see how bad I need to practice rapid fire.
Using rapid fire with a .45 caliber Kimber, I only hit Osama only four times out of six shots, and I was only 21 feet away from his photo!
