I have a Beretta 950BS that I really like. It's made like a little jewel. I have alternate rounds of Glaser Blues and the Hornady 35 gr. XTP's in the magazine. I've always figured that I'd aim the Glasers at the eyes, then try to step up and put the XTP's either in the temple or in the eye socket. Problem is, you'd have to be damn close to do it.
