I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I have a comment and a question. I'll start with the question:
I have a GP100 .357 which I keep for home defense purposes. Does anybody have any experience with effective non-lethal rounds in a .357 or .38 spl? Rubber bullets, etc.... If any truly effective non-lethal rounds exist, it would be my preference to use them.
In life I'm a practicing attorney. The ability to use lethal force varies from state to state, as many have commented. But please also know that statutes (which can be difficult to understand for even someone trained to do so) only tell part of the story. Other things to consider include case law interpreting those statutes and the discretion of the prosecuting authority. I only say this because I saw some good-natured but perhaps misguided comments on the ability to use lethal force, and I don't want any of you folks getting in trouble, especially in situations involving self-defense.
