    Hornady

    So I was at Dicks sporting good tonight, and I asked a employee about hornady critical defense, he told me a detective told him that it can be considered an over kill and the use of it could get you in trouble if you ever had to defend yourself under make my day. I asked him if 00buck is a better route. He didn't have an answer realizing the shotgun will do way more damage. I told him that is the cop liberal twist that thinks the only people can possess firearms are cops. All these types of ammo are legal in colorado. I see hornady ammo advertised on the sportsman channel all the time. What is the thought on it? I've used speer dot and federal hydra shocks, liked them both but wanting to try something different.

    I carry the hornady critical defense and will stay with them.... They cycle perfectly in my G26 and over kill, i have no idea how someone can say that, there is no difference then any other JHP, except it has the little rubber piece to prevent the cavity from clogging when going ip against heavier clothing like coats, big sweaters, etc

    Only thing on bullets for self defence, I have been told not to use is the ones you reload your self. Because
    the lawyers will have fun with that. ("So you reloaded this bullet to specifically kill this man/women") I was warned of this through conceal carry instructor. The other thing was not to use FMJ. Full metal jacket will penetrate target and keep going.

    I've been told this also

    1) Don't trust third-hand information from the "expert" behind the ****'s Sporting Goods counter.

    2) I've not read up much on Hornady Critical Defense...but from the little I've read, it seems that these would be very effective at stopping an attacker.

    3) If you are involved in a defensive shooting, and if the circumstances aren't clear-cut, or if the political climate in your area is anti-gun, you may go to trial. If this happens, the prosecutor will use EVERYTHING he can to paint you as a vicious killing machine that should be locked up. If you used Hornady Critical Defense, he will ask "Why not just regular hollow points?" If you used a .45, he will ask "Why not a smaller 'more defensive' gun like a .380?" If you shot the guy 5 times, he will talk about the "spray of bullets you recklessly let loose" on the poor defenseless mugger.

    Sadly, most prosecutors believe their job is to get convictions, when it should be to see that justice is done.

    With all that in mind - make sure you are justified, before using deadly force.

    Better to be alive and telling a prosecutor why you were using Hornaday CD ammo than be dead and not answering any questions at all.

    I use Hornady CD ammo in my BUG and HD shotgun. When I carry my Colt New Agent I carry Hardball to prevent any feeding problems. If anybody asks why you're carrying hardball that is your answer. Also.45ACP hardball rarely causes a through and through wound, USUALLY dumping all of their energy in the target.

    Hornady is all I have ever carried in my home defense guns and in my carry guns. My brother swears by Winchester personal defense.

    Oh and never ask a Dicks Sporting Goods employee about anything having to do with guns. I have only had one associate with any real knowledge in the lodge there. Hell I had a kid tell me that High Point pistols were some of the best pistols ever made...
