defending in an apartment bldg where you can't afford to have stuff go through sheet rock into
an adjacent apartment and still be able to inflict lethal penetration, then the fragmentation is something
you should consider.
Now to the downsides--- COST COST COST. These are very expensive so you don't get much
practice time with them unless you have buckets of money.
And then, on the smaller calibers, 32 and .380 you still have the ongoing ever present arguments on
penetration, and "what if" clothing is thick as in winter time.
If they were more affordable I would fill my .40 pistol with them which I use for HD. I don't the MagSafe
could fly through my dry wall, insulation, and brick, go through my wood fence and into my neighbors
house. I'm not so sure that a 180 gr solid .40 might not in an odd situation somehow penetrate all of that.
For my .380--- many folks have posted here on the advantages of FMJ in this particular caliber
and I am inclined to agree.
Take your choice and hope you never ever ever ever ever need to use it.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
