Modern bullet designs are meant to afford rapid incapacitation without overpenetration. They are very defensible in court. The only thing I'd stay away from for CCW ammo are handloads. I don't need to give some plaintiff shyster any reason to claim that I assembled "custom killer ammunition". The argument could most likely be defeated, but there's anough good factory ammo available that there's no reason to give opposing council extra crap to work with.

The problem might be a civil suit from the "victim’s" survivors.

I load what will most efficiently kill another human being if the need should arise and I have to defend myself, family and/or property. I'll deal w/ the laywers and courts after the fact. [;)]

That is the appropriate response to a situation where you or the individuals in your charge are in a real and immediate danger of death or grave bodily injury. The ammo issue related to the legal aftermath that is likely to follow.

Beer Slayer, I would do a search on Masaad Ayoub's site or articles. I've read several articles written by him devoted to this topic with cases to illustrate same. Unfortunately, I can't quote you a specific reference.

Something you should be concerned about, however, is a 'hair trigger'. Ask a lawyer friend (one at a firm with the unlimited westlaw or lexis plan) sometime to run a search on those terms. Scary. There is caselaw on that topic, and it is not good for those who like a good trigger.

One of the main reasons PDs use DA and DAO handguns is to defuse the potential for SA hair trigger AD claims.
