    I was at the gun store today and after purchasing my gun the guy showed me some safety slugs in 9mm that when it hits the target it explodes into a bunch of pellets that keep you from accidently hitting someone or something behind the target. It seemed like a novel idea and always worried that if I had to use a gun in self defense the bullet may go through a wall and hurt someone but I havent heard much about them. Are they decent or just some gimmick?

    .

    Gimmick.
    Anything that'll go deep enough into a bad guy to reliably hit organs and vitals in a fight (i.e. including weird angles and such) is also going to go through at least a couple walls.

    save your money for practice ammo so you can actually hit your target... then it's a moot point.
