I live in a house that is very close to my neighbors' houses. I don't want a bullet to go through my wall and theirs, then through a neighbor. For this reason I don't ever load FMJs when I am at home. I shoot a .45 Colt, but even with this large (and slow) round, hollowpoints won't penetrate a wall. 410bore #7 shot definitely won't kill a neighbor, nor will 000 buckshot.Tarzan1888 said:There are also many who worry about over penetration.
I discount this because in a gun fight most shots miss and I contend that the ones that miss are more lethal than the ones that may go clear through the bad guy and then go on down field.
This is the only scenario where I worry about over-penetration.
