I hate to say this...but if someone cant handle shooting anything but uber powder puff loads (unless for training, learning or a medical disability to prevent injury) they probably shouldn't be carrying a gun for SD.
I do not agree with this sentiment at all. If I can't afford the ultra lubricating synthetic oil in my car, should I just forgo any oil at all? I kind of resent this statement. It's borderline pretentious and not the kind of encouragement I feel we should be giving to would be shooters and people wanting to take responsibility for their own defense.
