I've been interested in firearm stopping power for a very long time. I remember reading Handguns magazine back in the late 1980s when Evan Marshall was writing articles about his stopping power studies. When Marshall's first book came out in 1992, I ordered it immediately, despite the fact that I was a college student and really couldn't afford its $39 price tag. Over the years I bought all of the rest of Marshall's books as well as anything else I could find on the subject. I even have a first edition of Gunshot Injuries by Louis Lagarde published in 1915.

These people write great articles. I encourage all members to keep sharing. However they write there articles to get traffic to their website and possibly gain revenue from advertisers. We need to stop posting ENTIRE works that are not created by you or that you do not have written permission to repost. I created a post March 2011 explaining how to repost someone else work. You can find it here
