  1. 9mm ball ammo, specifically 115gr NATO FMJ, is the issue here. That load is simply not much of a man stopper. Issueing troops any decent modern JHP ammo would fix the problem. However unless we loophole or ignore the Geneva Convention we are stuck with ball ammo.

    As to alternatives we are left with swapping to a new caliber. Of the available optiions .40 S&W and .45acp seem the most reasonable. A Glock 21 with an adjustable backstrap would be an excellent choice.
