Muggers? ok, your putting on a public forum, that you intend to break IL law and carry concealed. Thats just damned foolish. Also make me question your age. you trollin?
If you are going to have/carry a gun for self-defense, USE THE THING!
Warning shots,shooting to wound(knees), **** like that will get you killed or worse, sued by the injured victim, or his family. you shoot to end the threat. so if you hit them once, and they are still mobile and threatening, you shoot them until they are no longer a threat. I somewhat commend you for wishing to have a gun for defensive purposes, but I also mock you for stupidity.
