this topic was brought up on another forum and thought i would post a thread about it. should the choice of firearm or the ammo used in a justified shooting ever have any bearing on the outcome of a case where it's proven the case was justified? IMO, the firearm or ammo used should have no bearing, not even have any revelence as long as the shooting was justified and legal. my feeling is an intruder breaks into my home, well it's my house my rules so i get to make the rules and choose the desired firearm and ammo. if he dosn't like my rules, then break into someone else's house! my only goal is to protect my family and myself. would like to hear others thoghts on this subject.
