Good info. One of my concerns is over penetration. Knowing that is not an issue would be one less problem to face after a self-defense incident.

Superb, very actionable information. I utilize several 9mm Luger pistols for home defense, chambered with Hornaday Critical Defense rounds. Overpenetration is a concern because the adjacent rooms are often occupied.

I think I see some Remington 62-grain Ultimate Defense PSP (Bonded) in my future. Wife already sleeps with ear plugs, maybe I should too (can still hear the first alert system thru ear plugs, aka “barking dog”) :grinning:

It’s halftime so don’t have 25 minutes to watch video right now, but this thread looks like it’s a good one:
