    I certainly do not have a desire to kill anyone, but I have less desire for someone to kill me. my intention is NOT to kill but to incapacitate.
    I practice regualrly, i shoot triple taps, I shoot for 2 COM, one head, so if its in the cards they die or survive its luck of the draw.
    and i use what I consider to be the most reliable devastating projectile that i can find in my Determination for that caliber--Period.

If you aren't willing to kill someone, perhaps pepper spray is a better alternative.
    Obviously you never killed anyone in your homeland, if going to war yes "Kill them" It is such a long process when you kill someone in the USA, it could go on as long as 5yrs before the case is closed and along with all the stress even if you're 100% in the right.

    I run the Remington 9mm 124gr Ultimate Defense loads. They are the old Golden Saber projectiles, however, they have 2 different versions: Compact and Full-size Handgun. The Compact is designed for maximum performance and low muzzle flash from barrels less than 3.5" long. The full-size is for barrels over 3.5". My wife has the Compact loads in her Sig P238, and said they are not near as "snappy" as the ful-power loads we practice with. I can definitely tell the difference in my Shield if I switch between the two. I haven't tried the Compact version in any of my full-size guns yet, however, people tell me that it resembles a reduced recoil load.

    In redneck ballistic test conducted here the Golden Sabre does very good in my longer barreled 380, the XTP seems to do better in the shorter barreld one , and the all copper hollow points like "Goldilocks" seem to feel the best in both.
    I would note all are worthy of carry in my opinion.

    Go to lucky Gunner or Gel Test and see how different ammo expands in ballistic gelitan. As stated earlier some 9MM bullets do not expand at all from short barrel.

    I have the Winchester 147 gr Defense Rounds in my SAR G6c. They function well.

    I also have some Fiocchi 124 grain hp rounds that work well.

    Well, everything works well that I have tried in my SAR except the Winchester Forged in Steel Rounds. It ate the Tula Steel Cased like candy though.

    I've been happy with the Hornady Critical defense in my .380. .45 and 9mm. Started buying the Rem. Ultimate Defense 147 gr but haven't had the chance to shoot any of them in my 9mm.
