Mom shot 6 time ex-convict intruder with all the bullets of her 38, yet he was still able to get up after she ran out of bullets. What if it was more than one intruder? Maybe limiting ammunition capacity is actually better for the criminals and not their victims after all.

Maybe she will go out and get her something that holds more bullets for the next guy that comes in
Good for her, hope she is able to do it again

My guess would be FMJ. Most people's guns and ARs are loaded with FMJ's.

That is what I was thinking too CL. Foolish on her part if that was the case, it could have cost her and her children their lives. Golden Sabers +P's and he would have left in a body bag.

Yep. People buy and practice with FMJ but ho many load a mag with Hollow point when storing or carrying?

Same with all the AR's. Hollow or ballistic tips are expensive and not as readily available as FMJ practice rounds. Greatly reduces stopping power.

The 38 spl loaded with 158 grain lead round nose bullets provides excellent stopping power. The heavy, soft bullet impacts with authority then mushrooms nicely. Pure lead is the best all around for it is accurate, cheap, and deadly.
