    Hi everyone, I have a few general questions about people’s personal experience/opinion on a matter I have been doing a lot of research in without a solid answer. So I have decided to get my CCW and another handgun for home defense/carry, after testing a lot of different guns, doing research on reliablity, and some various other factors, I have settled on the H&K 45, it fits incredibly comfortably in my hand, and the SA/DA is enjoyable. I settled on the .45 over a 9mm due to apperent less chance of overpenetration in home defense, due to it being a slower, heavier round.
    Now for the question, what are peoples prefered defense round? I have seen a lot of good things about the xtreme defender round, but it seems so light weight that it almost begs the question, why use a .45 over a 9mm if im only using a 120 grain round, my other option I have been considering is the hydra shok/ hydra shok deep rounds, they have excellent testing, and meet the 210+ grain I’ve come to expect for a .45.
    Any input is appreciated and all opinions will be taken into consideration, and of course, mandatory please no 9mm or .45 fanboy stuff, looking for serious input. Thanks everyone!
