The critical wounding components for handgun ammunition, in order of importance, are penetration and permanent cavity.(33) The bullet must penetrate sufficiently to pass through vital organs and be able to do so from less than optimal angles. For example, a shot from the side through an arm must penetrate at least 10-12 inches to pass through the heart. A bullet fired from the front through the abdomen must penetrate about 7 inches in a slender adult just to reach the major blood vessels in the back of the abdominal cavity.

Surely not! The OP has been here for quite a while and surely has seen all of that string of endless argument. If that is the purpose, TxCajun needs to "fork it" as soon as it begins past more than a few posts. :-/
