People take this game too dam serious..chill the heck out. Its a free GAME... a Game... our Taxes pay for this and that means unless you have the support of Congress or God, you cant do anything about, so why freak out?
No. Pistols in general are not very powerful IRL. IRL a Soldiers standard gear would stop most life threatening wounds. Neck-spine, face (straight on), arm pit (sideways) and femoral would be the only near instant kill hits.
