Handgun Self-Defense Ammunition Ballistics Test
By Chris Baker, Updated on 8/4/2016
As a statistician, I love data. Check out how many
of the bullets did not mushroom at all. Check out the
variance in the penetrations.
Brass vs. Steel Cased Ammo
Urban Carry Holsters
Requires two hands. (So, I can't recommend it.)
But, the concealment is better than
normal inside the waistband holsters.

Attacker’s Reputation for Violence
By Andrew Branca, February 15, 2013
At the Hebrew Hogger self-defense seminar in
Nashville, TN on 7/31/2016 A.D., attorney, Dana McLendon,
recommended removal of all provocative bumper stickers from your car,
removal of all provocative posts from your social media web sites,
etc. because they will appear as exhibits in your trial, if you
should ever shoot someone in self defense.
Not only do you need to know an attorney before the
event, you also need to know a bail bondsman before the
event. So, you can call them if you need them, or if some
friend or relative needs them.
In home invasion incidents, it is usually the female
who does the killing of the invader. So, get your daughters
and wives trained, now. They have to have the training
before the event. Why? Because the primary target of the
invader will be the adult male.
If you travel through Maryland, their automated license
plate readers will read your license plate and match it to
your concealed weapons permit. With 100% probability the
state troopers will stop you and search for weapons. So,
Mr. McLendon recommends you rent a car and not use your car.
Claude Werner (The Tactical Professor) recommends you
read "The Law of Self Defese" by Andrew F. Branca.
"The Five Critical Principles of the Law of Self Defense"
Maintain a log of your training, so that you can
get it entered at trial. This allows you to call
expert witnesses to testify about what you learned.
Retreat is always a good idea, even in stand
your ground states. It allows you to recover your
innocents. It allows you to show you did everything
possible to avoid the incident before you used
Ask for medical attention. You won't know
that you've been injured. You won't feel anything.
