Pat on the back. I'm a bit proud to be a 21 y/o female on her way to owning my CPL. Finished my class Saturday. That being said, they were a tad contradicting. Two points they continued to make were stopping power. Not just pissing the person off...and the fact that the NRA does not recommend much more than a 357 for home protection. (If I remember correctly)...in the case that you miss your target, or it goes straight through into another room. Now I've never been shot, but I would think it doesn't feel good, no matter what caliber. They also talked about shooting until the threat is gone, so if I empty my mag, I'm not thinking you're going anywhere. I've also been taught to know my surroundings. If I have the potential of injuring an innocent person, I believe the situation needs to be handled differently. I understand its all about what I am personally comfortable with. I plan to shoot as many guns as possible until I find my fit...but a few points they made were contradicting.
