Very good post, I can tell you from experience that most crack heads/tweekers won't go down until the bleed out or get a head/spine shot.

I have heard a lot of CCW instructors claim different things about different types of ammo being used in SD situations. My feeling about it is this: If you are going to use a gun in a self-defense situation, you want it to function as designed. Guns = lethal force, plain and simple. Many SD situations are a matter of "my life or your life". If I am going to shoot somebody, I want to make sure the shot is effective at stopping the threat immediately. Can a certain type of ammo be "overkill"? Dead is dead. I don't see how any type of bullet can kill somebody any deader than another type of bullet. The ONLY type I can think of would be some kind of explosive tip bullet. I remember the news media claiming Pres. Reagan was shot by some kind of an explosive laden .22 bullet. I have never found details of that particular type bullet, and for all I know the media could have been talking of a hollow-point CCI.

BTW, thanks for the great read Cane.

An injured bad guy can call a lawyer. I only take my full clip of JHP out of my .45ACP when I am at the range. When I'm ready to leave, it goes back in. Great article Cane. Thanks.

If you carry what the cops carry in your jurisdiction there is not much they can say without indicting all the cops too. Except in NJ.
