    a slight side step... parts of the military authorize a warning shot (fire into the air while on guard, even state side) before a supposed threat does happen. i got the 'demonstrator post' and everything a few years back. ..what goes up must go down... we'll worry about that later.
    What's this button do?

    I live in L.A., and I like to ride my bike to work, which is only about three miles away.
    Unfortunately, to do so I have to go through the "bad part" of town.

    Not only is it graffiti city, it's also mugger central.
    For this reason, I always carry a concealed and licensed revolver
    .

    LA residents don't get carry permits for the stated reason

    One day, a mugger charges out of an alley beside the street, which is empty except for me.
    He is about 50 feet away and quickly closing...this guy could run!
    He had a nasty looking club in his right hand.
    My speed and his angle were such that I knew I couldn't outrun him. So I stopped the bike, rolled off the seat behind the bike and drew the revolver.
    I always fill my revolver with soft lead points.
    Fully jacketed rounds tend to penetrate very deep at incredible velocity, causing damage that is usually fatal.

    Wrong

    Soft points penetrate only about an inch and expand, stopping quickly.

    wrong again

    This causes incredible pain but is rarely fatal.
    wrong again

    I saw a guy on here say that it is wise to kill an attacker if you must shoot him. That's not true at all.
    Anyway, the guy keeps coming, as if he thinks he's bulletproof.
    I fire a round into his stomach. He cries in pain but keeps coming, a little slower.
    This guy's tough.
    Two more rounds and he's on the ground, unconscious.
    I called the police on my cellular immediately, also requesting paramedics.
    I didn't want to hurt this guy in the first place; now I could at least get him to a hospital.
    There happened to be a witness, a poor but honest teenager who I didn't see walking bye.
    He saw the whole thing, and with his greatly appreciated help I got out of court with no legal trouble whatsoever.

    The guy lived, is now in jail, and I suffered no emotional or legal troubles that would be experienced if I had killed him, using conventional fully-jacketed rounds.

    His legal trouble has nothing to do with the type of bullets he did or did not use.

    What's the moral of the story?
    If you want personal defense, carry a small revolver with soft-point rounds. They have fantastic "stopping power" but will almost never kill a person.


    I think the moral of the story is that you need to educate yourself about ballistics and self defense using a lethal weapon and not rely on the internet for your legal opinions of what might be acceptable or not in this type of encounter.

    Sometimes it is wise to load two chambers with fully-jacketed rounds so that you have extra power if necessary.

    Extra power does not come solely from fully jacketed bullets

    This is one of the advantages of revolvers: it is possible to strategically load the chambers with different types of rounds,

    You can do the same thing with semi autos

    then quickly select a type appropriate to the application.

    I don't recommend carrying blanks, either.
    They will fend off many criminals, but as in my case some seem to think they are invincible.


    Blanks will fend off many criminals? Wow, thats good to know

    When they find out you have blanks, they will hasten the attack with even less fear and you will be helpless.
    Carry soft-points and shoot them up in the air if you think only a scare will be necessary.

    nice legal troubles brewing with that thought process

    If this fails, it usually takes only 1 or 2 rounds to stop a criminal.

    I wish we could rely on that thought, but we know from the past thats not something to rely on
    As we all know, the in a self defense situation, the goal is not to kill the attacker, but to do whatever it takes to stop the impending attack.
    Many times, this results in the death of the attacker.
    Full metal jacket rounds tend to over-penetrate while jacketed hollow points and (to a lesser degree) soft points tend to expand causing a larger wound cavity, greatly increasing the chance of stopping the attack and decreasing the possibility of over-penetration.

    Wow. I guess this guys never been hunting before. I have seen what sp vs full metal can do to meat. Oh well a nice fairy story for all those not wishing to really defend thier lives against a threat. Plus i totally saw an episode of csi where a guy got charged for murder because he shot a gun in the air and the bullet came down and killed soemone.

    Thinking about it...I don't think he is old enough to work, so everything after that would be bad fiction.
