Yes if it was a FMJ....but a HOME DEFENSE Hollow Point 9mm will penetrate a full human body...but wont go very far after that.
I have done many ballistics test on home defense rounds and after about 12in of penetration through just BALLISTICS GEL(not including RIBS, ORGANS...ect) it starts to loss all of its penetrating power...It will go all the way through a body, but will not carry much further then that. It may stick in the wall behind the person you just shot....but I highly doubt it. Now if you were using a FMJ that will defiantly over penetrate
It comes down to, PROPER HOME DEFENSE AMMO, and SHOT PLACEMENT!
