Take a look at . Focus on Problem One first (living through the gunfight). THEN worry about Problem Two (any follow-on legal problems).

As far as hardware is concerned, if your local DA is the kind of creature that you have to worry about such esoterica, try to use the same things for self defense (within reason, of course) that your local LEOs do. Local cops carry Glock .40s loaded with hollowpoints? Remington 870 riot guns loaded with 00 buckshot? It will be harder for the DA to give you grief over using the same stuff "his guys" on the street are carrying.

Good link and info Lee. The way I read it, it sounds like 15 shots with a .22 is more excessive than 1 with a 12ga. Which makes sense because I hope it wouldn't take 15 shots to reduce the level of an attack.
