I like the idea. I carry MagSafe in both my 9mm and 45.

Thanks to you both.
Personally, I don't think the benefits of frangibles outweigh their downfalls. They just don't give you the penetration that I would feel comfortable staking my life on. If you're worried about missing and having a shot pass through the walls, practice more.
The only thing I'd use a frangible for is at a shooting range with a thin backstop. Regarding personal defense, frangibles fall short in stopping power.

I was unable to find anything on this in a brief search on the internet, but I remember reading somewhere that if you used a gun in a self defense scenario, you should have x amount of ammo of the same lot # to be used by Police for ballistics testing after the fact. I think it may have been Masaad Ayoob that said this (and excuse the rusty memory.) I know most frangible ammo is sold in lots of 6 - and tends to be quite pricey. Just another factor to bear in mind.
When it comes to handguns, there are Sig Sauers, then there's everything else.
I'm not impressed with frangible ammo. I have some in 357 sig and it wouldn't feed reliably in my Glock 33 or my Kel-Tec P11 357 sig. It may have been the rounds though. I have some old PMC Green ammo. The newer designs look better but I'll stay with what I know will do the job. Here are some for sale and in stock to give you an idea of the price.

Frangible ammo is kinda gimmicky.
It has a very limited practical application. Especially when used in handguns.
I could justify it's use by air marshals, I guess.

IMHO, frag ammo lacks bullet weight and does not acheive enough penetration to stop an agressor
I would like to see some real world shooting data where frag ammo was used......
