I don't often carry my .357 as a defensive gun. If I shoot someone someday, I don't want it to be with my extremely-difficult-to-find, special edition Mountain Gun. That would break my heart for sure. Though, if I am carrying that gun someday and am forced into a defensive-shooting event, the perp is going to be on the receiving end of these same 180 gr. slugs because that's all I have for that gun.

No, for "normal" EDC defensive purposes, I carry a Glock 23 loaded with 165 gr. Speer Gold Dot HPs. I wouldn't be happy about losing this gun either but, I wouldn't be all that broken up either. After all, it's just a Glock.
