    :noes: Will it over penetrate and blow up the building behind your target? seriously.

    Why would you need a 10mm for self defense. It isn't like you are living in Africa and have to worry about defending yourself from charging rhino or elephants!

    Unwieldy round.

    I prefer .45

    I bet thats what that Ct woman thought too, right before a monkey ripped her fucking face off. :eek3:

    With the right round over penetration shouldn't be anymore of a worry then it is with other handgun rounds.

    It's probably overkill, but I'm partial to standard combat handgun rounds for SD - 9mm up through 45ACP. Less is probably non-lethal, and more may present over-penetration problems. (Keep in mind, this also has something to do with the "well what if I miss" backstop as well as the rapist you're trying to decapitate.)

    No. Ballistically the 10mm is very similar to the .357mag which I think most people would admit is a great SD round.

    Again just as with a .357mag, it might be wiser to load your SD 10mm with a bullet in the 155grn range rather than one of the 180-200grn hunting rounds, but that's just common sense.

    I use mine to shoot massive uncrossable craters between myself and my attacker.

    The recoil will actually do more damage to you than just letting your attacker shoot you in the face anyway.

    I had to join NATO before I could carry a 10mm.
