    Phone book shooting

    SO I went shooting today. Took my glock 19 and glock 20. I had 3 phone books in a row, dry. 9mm with fmj went through 1.5 books. The 10mm went through all 3. Then I shot 9mm 147 black talon. stopped in .5. 10mm 175 winchester hp went through all 3 again

    And the significance to this is? Especially would like to hear about the Black Talon results.

    Thanks.

    It's more of a penetration study.

    Next time try the other calibers: .357SIG, .40S&W and .45ACP.

    Fun stuff, thanks for sharing. Next time take pictures.

    A video of you shooting phone books would be much more entertaining.

    I guess then my question would be, how much penetration would one consider effective?

    With only a 1/2 inch with the Black Talon rounds, I'm thinking thats not good. Looks to me the FMJ at 1.5 inches would be pretty optimum!
