I carry an m9 loaded with +P hollowpoints, FMJ is for targets, I never want to worry about over penetration, the price will have to come down a bit, but I would love to have these bullets for carry.

I will once price drops. Would be nice to KNOW my small caliber, low round EDC weapon can get the job done in 1 shot. FTFs would be my biggest concern.

In order to test it's effectiveness. Appears that it may be a safer home defense ammo.

The point of home defense is to protect my family , if there is a better way to do it then why not .

.380 and 9mm have been considered in-adequate by many as stopping power. These will change that and allow me to carry a smaller firearm that still has one shot stopping power.

I would use them as the first two rounds in my home defense gun magazine. Even at $12 per round it would be better to have them and never need to use them.

If it stops an intruder with one shot, it lessens the intruders ability to inflict harm.

The ultimate round! 9mm bullet is more effective than a .45 round. Therefore shooting a 9mm handgun , with lower recoil and more bullets per magazine answers the need for ultimate protection

IF I could afford it; I'd buy to test it 1st. A tech paradygm shift in ammo demands it IMHO. i.e. Mfgr claims 0 malfunction feed/fire/eject failures. I'd verify ballistics & accuracy up to 25+yds

The way the court system and anti gun thinking is today, it could be looked at as "NAME was wanting the most devastating wound he could inflict. Only intent was to kill." Seems overkill to me

Who needs ammo that will kill everytime? I can understand military use but civilians do not need ammo with this capability. And to spend $12 a round is a bit costly to never use.

Yes and no. If I'm on the road or out past dark I do carry a backup. IF it's to do a few errors during the day then I normally carry my everyday pistol. But always carry an extra mag on me.
