People that use terms like that don’t know anything about guns and probably can’t be reasoned with.

I suspect your friend has no idea what large calibers are.
Ask which calibers are small, intermediate, and large, which ones are and are not appropriate for self-defense, and why.

Because it’s a god given right.

How about “fuck you, that’s why”

A gun is lethal force. It should never be used unless your life or another innocent person’s life is being presented with an immediate threat of death or grave bodily harm.
So if your life or the lives of your loved ones are in danger, wouldn’t you want to have as much firepower as you can get to have as good of a chance of saving you and your loved ones as possible?

What right does the government have to tell me what I can and can’t use to defend my own life?
A government that regularly releases violent criminals onto the streets doesn’t get too tell me how I can protect myself against the people they refuse to protect us from.

Define “large caliber”. Also, because bears and shit exist

“Why should you be allowed to dictate what people can use to defend themselves, and what is your moral justification to prevent people to refuse being victimized?”

Because lick my balls and taint.

To end the threat, not annoy/delay it. https://youtu.be/KT0KcenH_eQ?t=133

Performance vs target cover may well be more important than cal….
I typically carry with staggered ball and high impact loads… each double tap (is that still a thing) gives one round for penetration and one for impact (optimum penetration and energy transfer)…
Only use this method after test firing several mags… e.g. believe it or not but the ‘will eat anything’ ‘gas operated blow back retarded’ HK P7M8 ‘squeeze cocker’ will fail more often than not at least once per mag…
I especially prefer this technique for my car carry to be covered if needing to defeat a vehicle’s sheet metal, glass, etc…
For street use it’s especially effective during cold weather when high impact / low penetration ammo can be rendered less effective on a target with multi layer heavy covering…

Outside of, mind ya buissness boy:
In a self defense situation I’m not looking to fight fair. I’m looking to win.
Roman-3rdGuestMay 16, 2021 at 9:21 am
Because armor is a thing.

Because I live in Maine and a charging moose is a real threat. As are mountain lions and bear. And meth heads. I’m not playing games and taking a risk by shooting more than one shot.
People have different needs. Some need small concealable pocket guns chambered in .22, .25, .32, etc. Some need ginormous revolvers chambered in .44, .460, .500, or .45-70. All depends on your location and your needs.
Caliber should be an irrelevant topic of discussion. It’s a gun. It can kill things. .22 can kill people, so it shouldn’t matter how big the cartridge is, when the smallest available is effectively lethal. Tell your friend to take a walk down a dark alley in Compton or Brooklyn, and take a hike through the backwoods of Maine and Alaska. They’re not gonna choose the same gun to do both. Or if they do, they’re gonna choose the larger caliber. Better to be safe than sorry. As the FBI would tell you after 1986 Miami Dade.
