Also, I hear and read all the time where people say a .45 is a very good stopper in a handgun. if that's nonsense, can you tell me why and tell me where I'm mistaken and maybe what ISN'T nonsense? If I'm full of mud, can you set me straight?

I do appreciate the critical thinking.
It is nonsense. Just Google it. Thousands of examples of people shot with 45 who continue to live. Some people shot multiple times. One good example is of a cop in MN who was shot 6 times in the face with a 45. He killed his adversary with a 9mm.
