The THD is the perfect cartridge for home defense, and for law enforcement professionals operating in crowded urban environments.  It offers more than enough stopping power (even against criminals wearing bulletproof vests), but because the wad is designed not to separate from the slug, risk to innocent bystanders is reduced.  The lower recoil allows fast followup shots in case of a multiple-target scenario.  The THD is the best safeguard for you and the ones you love.

Even though the THD is a low-recoil cartridge, it has more than enough power to penetrate barricades encountered in typical urban scenarios such as car doors.  The photo below shows the THD penetrating two 20-gauge steel sheets, as used in FBI test protocol in order to simulate a car door.  This steel is actually thicker than that used in most modern European and U.S. automobiles.
