What's the best Personal Defense Rounds and caliber
 
I am gonna vote for the 9mm or the 10mm for maximum damage. I also like 410 that is my number one

I personally favor the 9mm and .45ACP. I like 147gr 9mm bullets and the classic 230gr bullets in .45ACP.

My home defense gun is a .357 magnum revolver. I'm not saying it's the best, it's just the 'biggest' I have right now.

I'm with WOC. I've got a smith .357 loaded with 158 grain hornady xtp.

Depends on the size of your house, the size od your enemy, and the amount of damage allowed (to both your target and home.) My all-time favorite would be revolver chambered for .410 ammo, she's reliable, hits hard, and spreads to the size of a full human in about 20 yds. This means if they're up close they've got one Hell of an ouchie or if the SOB is unlucky enough to get far they're gonna have as many holes in um as a piece of swiss cheese. But you know, there's also the matter of replacing a wall or whatnot...

..........and knowing what's on the other side of that wall that you might not want to get shot, like family members. :eek:

Glaser rounds, look into them. They come in silver or blue tipped, designed to put down an intruder but not travel through walls. Another company I believe is magsafe. Its like $30 bucks for 6-8 but you get what you pay for.

9mm is my personal choice.

Don't care for safety rounds that won't go through walls. If a bullet won't go through a single sheet of wall board, it won't get adequate penetration in a human target, and penetration is the name of the game. Knowing your target, and knowing what's behind your target are part of the responsibility of using a gun for self defense. Anyone who draws a gun and starts shooting, with no regard for where the rounds might go, is headed for legal problems.

Just my opinion.

Eighty Eight Magnum. It shoots through schools.

Seriously?
