    Hey Mas,

    In a very short range self defense situation such as arms length apart like in a car jacking distance. Would a person be better off using a +p or none +p such as a 147gr out of a 9mm with a barrel length between 3.1" - 3.5" so there is less chance of over penetration.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    Assuming the same bullet weight, the faster +P/+P+ loads should mushroom sooner and wider, resulting in a wider wound path with less penetration.
