What can you do when you come across a gun with no serial number. Or a Marlin with a tang sight and someone drilled through one of the numbers to install it.
I sure wanted that Marlin but unsure of the missing digit so passed.

Re: Another look at "stopping power" in a defensive handgun

The Strasbourg goat tests in the early 90's addressed this issue.
If I remember correctly the 357 and the 45ACP were high on the list.
Of course ammo has improved greatly since then.
