how good is a 9mm for self defence? i have one on layaway and before i start carrying it i want to know how effective it is... not necessarily to kill but to stop somebody? what ammunition would you recommend? hollow points? or solid tips?

9mm is perfect for self defense as long as you are aiming, like any other caliber.
You shoot till the bad guy goes down & no more after that if they are not a threat anymore.
Handgun is made to stop but will kill if in the right spot.
Hollow points are only thing you should use for carrying & self defense. Hollow points break up inside so there is less worry about over penetration.
Solid points are what you use to target/silhouette shooting at the range. As they will pass straight through what you are shooting at.
