Unless you live in a red state with "Castle Doctrine" law, you will find yourself a victim of the legal system no matter what you do if it involves a firearm. The question you have to ask yourself is "Do I want to also face a civil trial after the criminal trial?" Too many people who felt like you found themselves financially and emotionally destitute after long drawn-out civil trials that were decided in favor of the "criminal" . Dead men can't sue!

Well, sorry to tell you this, but dead men actually can sue and often do through their estates.

Not really interested in killing them. I prefer to stop them in their tracks and then proceed to beat the **** out of them, piss on them and then call the cops. Should I just go 9mm, because its a cheaper gun to shoot?
If you need a firearm to keep in your home did you consider a shotgun ?

I had a 40 and decided to go for a 9mm. I love the soft recoil and the ammo is cheaper, and my new xdm9 has better grouping (for me) than the 40.

Yeah the 9mm can be usually be shot accurately at a faster rate of fire, but with practice I can now do just as well with my XD .40 Tactical. 9mm are fun to shoot, but I love the feel of a more powerful weapon.

I still favor the .40 even though I don't currently own one.
