Ok, so now I have this very expensive sig P238 as my primary self defense weapon during the summer time and at work. But what kind of ammo do I rely on for greater stopping power? Please Help. Thanks
Well I see your point, however it is debatable. It's like 9mm vs. 45 ACP? The point is trying to do as much damage as possible so that the assailant will stop the attack with fewer shots as possible. Therefore the bullet that does most damage is a better bullet. Having been limited to a smaller caliber due to the gun size, then I would like to make sure that at least I have the bullet that stings the most.I use Hornady Critical Defense. But personally, I don't think it matters all that much. The debate over which round is "best" is rather pointless. If you hit a vital spot, any good hollow point is going to do the job.
Not opinionated at all. A lot of people are just wrong is all. . .so much to choose from. I have been seaching the net for a week now and it seems that everyone has a great bullet to reccomend. Are they all good or is the net full of bad informations?? How opinionated is this subject?
You are quite right bigweatherby! Practice and prepareness is the key to all of it. And I guess in a way all of you are right. It is what ever works for the individual. Unfortunaly I am forced to carry a small weapon, most of the time, when that happens I wish I had a bullet with the stopping power of my Kimber .45 however I don't and I must adjust. Thanks to all of you for your great suggestions.There aren't any magic superior death ray bullets out there. Any handgun is weak and a little 380 is very weak (compared to a long gun). Buy quality ammo that functions 100% of the time, practice so you can place the bullets well and quickly, and be prepared for a failure to stop.
