    For my concealed weapon permit I carry Mag safe. They have it in most pistol calibers. It is a little on the expensive side but it is well worth the price when you see what it does to ballistic gelatin. I work at a hospital so I don't carry on duty, but the minute I leave I am armed.

                In my training I was advised to stay away from the hollow points and such. Kinda surprised as I looked at those as the safer rounds to use. The theory was if you kill someone and have those rounds, they will try and make it look like " what? you wanted to kill this person and not disable them?". I can see the point, after all we are supposed to use the minimum amount of force necessary. On the other hand, if I ever have to shoot someone, I probably won't be to concerned if they live or die.

                  As a firearms instructor, I have to tell you, that is some flawed logic. Hollow points have less chance of over penetration, an are more effective at stopping the threat, which is the goal when pulling the trigger. If a shoot is good, its good. There won't be a trial to ask you if you intended to kill the person.

                    Finally, someone else who understands this. If you are forced to draw your weapon and fire, it's likely for a damn good reason. If someone is trying to kill you, you react in kind.

                      You are attempting to stop the threat by reducing the amount of blood pressure to the brain, making them pass out from lack of blood. If they happen, due to this lack of blood pressure due to internal hemorrhaging, to die... That's unfortunate but not intentional.

                      This is what people mean when they say "stop the threat." If you fire ball ammo, you have to deal with:

                      Over penetration (Did you just shoot the bystander behind the threat?)
                      Lack of blood loss (The bullet 'just zips through' without creating massive trauma)
                      Bad Guys who 'just don't go down'

                        Nathan, it is for that very reason, when I have to carry the .45 it is loaded with 200 grain jacket hollow point, CCI's Lawman.
                        There are 100 calibers to an inch. In at .45 and expands to .80 caliber or more. A string of three rounds, two center mass and one to the head.

                          IMHO, the best thing to have on the uniform is the ink pen. How you write your report makes all the difference in the world. As Minneapolis stated, it's stopping the "threat", not to kill, etc. Everyone will have their opinions, but it comes down to you going home to bed or in a box.

                          Most security agencies aren't going to pay for full firearms training, and just give you enough to say you're "trained".

                            Yes, I can't disagree with you on the basic point of if you have to shoot. But, you won't be sued? Of course you will, no matter how good the shoot. Do it right and you'll win the suit, but you'll always have people questioning it.
