Given the close ranges associated with most self defense uses of handguns, is over-penetration of 9mm +P loads an issue? I have received quite a bit of advice from fellow concealed-carry permit holders that I should use +P jacketed hollow-point ammo in my 9mm pistol. I have concerns that using a +P cartridge at close range could result in the bullet going through the target and still retain enough mass and energy to wound an innocent bystander. When I ask this question of my acquaintances that suggest the +P loads, they say it isn’t an issue, however, none of them has any real life experience with actually shooting anyone with any ammunition, +P or standard loads. I am looking for an experience-based answer to my question.
Hi everyone, My wife and I are new to concealed carry. She recently got a Taurus 738 .380. After a couple hundred rounds, it’s still not fitting comfortably. She got a recommendation to get a Walther PK .380 (not the PPK). Any thoughts on the Walther?Anything else of a similar size that you’d recommend? It doesn’t have to be a .380.
I know there are several people who do not receive the Concealed Carry Report and other emails from USCCA. The email sent out today was one everyone should see. Many members have sent in questions in response to The Bulletproof Mind seminar with Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman. Tim Schmidt asked Dave if he would be willing to go to USCCA Headquarters and answer some of those questions.
The resulting video is pure gold.
