Self Defense Ammuntion Penetration

For those who wonder why I have previously claimed the AR-15 is a great home defense rifle, the following article should help to explain how I (and others) have come to this conclusion. Though the .223/5.56mm round travels much faster and carries more kinetic energy than a pistol round, self defense loads for the AR-15 are much less likely to pass through walls and other barriers intact. Those of you who remain unconvinced, please look for yourself!
