I live in a renovated loft in a historical building. Once an intruder has entered the loft, he is standing between me and the one way in and out of the space. My wife is in the bedroom behind me. The only person downrange is the bad guy. The building owners do live across the hall, but the arrangement of their place is such that they will 99% likely be out of the line of fire, (or not home at all).
So I'm considering .45 ACP FMJ as my home defense round, for maximum penetration with an already large sized bullet. Or a good 9mm JHP. I just was wondering if the BG takes cover, can I nail him through the cover he takes. There's not much that would serve as hard cover. Mostly just soft cover/concealment.
Best he could do is a 12" x 12" 100 year old maple post. . . but doubt he could completely hide behind that.
My bedroom is the door to the right with the sign over it.
If you look closely you can just see the entrance next to the small black table lamp at the far end. It's kinda hidden behind the corner/post.
