A couple of different examples reported by John Lott

I think we can safely say that this is an example of stopping power, tnx to John Lott's Website:
A sanitation worker who unloaded six .357 Magnum slugs into an armed kidnapper won't be charged with a crime, officials said Wednesday.
Mr. Lott also brings us an example of gun defense which didn't require discharging the firearm:
A citizen armed with a .44 Magnum stopped a suspected thief long enough for sheriff's deputies to make an arrest Tuesday morning.


Estes didn't keep the gun -- a revolver with a 6-inch barrel -- pointed very long, he said. He holstered it immediately after determining the suspect didn't pose a threat, he said.

"I made it very clear to stay in the car and that he was not at risk and that I was not a threat," said Estes, 40, who has a concealed weapon permit.
Fortunately for the thief, he decided to surrender rather than get his head blown clean off.
