Don't run off yet!
I personally like Glaser Blue Safety Slugs for in home defense. Will pose very little risk to innocents in adjoining rooms if the target is missed. Will not riccochet or pass through walls before fragmenting. On the human body, the fragmenting on impact causes a massive wound channel.
For all other self defense applications I prefer Hornady TAP in the 200gr. format. Feeds extremely well into my 4 inch Kimber and produces great ballistics.

Glasers are somewhat spendy and only come 6 per pack where I live. To turn away from Hollowpoints would be a mistake. Load your magazine where your first 6 shots are Glasers and follow them up with some good highend Hollowpoints. Just my preference.

Yes same here. But they seem to be the safest/effective combination. I want to take away as much from hurting an innocent person as I can. They just seem like the best way to go. It's priceless in my opinion

Training is far more valuable than frangible ammo.

The more I thought about it, the more I agree with matt g! Don't do stupid stuff, stupid stuff won't happen. I would much rather use a hp rather than the glaser due to the price. Was in another walmart today and found a box of hp and of course had to pick them up. i cleaned out the walmarts this weekend
