Full metal jackets are not good ammo for home defense, they go through perps, then walls and may kill a family member or next door neighbor if in an apartment. Better to use hollow points.

Have you ever tried firing ANY weapon in a high stress, high pressure tactical shooting course?
I mean..where you really live through and experience the scenario you're describing..not simply imagine how it might play out. I'll say for the money the courses cost to take, it's worth EVERY PENNY for simply learning the difference between those two things, IMO. Imagined events vs. the reality that happens. I found the two to be radically different....and it would have been a fatal lesson, I'm sure, had I learned it first in a real situation.
Yeah...it's damned hard to keep aim with a handgun in close quarters in a high stress/pressure scenario. A rifle makes it HARDER..not easier, in close quarters and close range tho.
