Avoid reduced recoil loads for defense, they are also reduced power.
This is specifically why I use them for "inside the home" self defense. Reduced recoil loads maintain more than enough power and flight control characteristics at typical residential room/indoor distances. Reduced recoil loads are also far less punishing on the shooter and, as a result, facilitate distinctly faster "resetting" times for follow up shots than full-power loads. I have tested shot time difference between reduced recoil and full-power loads and shot count on target at various distances on myself as well as my wife. I am very confident using reduced recoil loads for home and self defense.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
