    I've been kinda likin the Hornady Critical Defense ammo lately. The G23
    Shoots consistantly, cleanly and makes for a nice wallop when the time comes...

    Federal 9BPLE+P in my 17, Winchester Ranger 115 grain in my non Glock.
  5. For 9 MM I generally shoot Hydra-Shocks. In .45 ACP Critical Defense is good. Sometimes I'll change off if Cabela's has a sale going on some of the other brand name stuff. I live just 2 miles away, so I generally wind up there at least once a week or so.

    Dirty J This forum sucks.

    I've carried Winchester PDX1 and Hornady Critical Defense in the past, but my current carry guns are loaded with Speer Gold Dot.

    Either Hydra-Shoks or Gold Dots.....if it were legal to carry in my state (IL), which it is not.

    Hornady TAP 230 +P...not because its the best (it isn't), but because its the best that is readily available, and it shoots good too....accurate, feeds and functions, not over priced either.

    G21 I use Hydra-Shoks. Am going to switch to Winchester Ranger as these are the Black Talons renamed and recolored!

    Any quality HP in 9mm. Gold Dots are the most common around here. Ranger when I find it.
  19. I'm with him.

    Through several training classes, and many LE stories, I've learned and respected the "no magic bullet" theory. And what little I've seen and heard, it seems (IMO) the heavier the slug, the better. The FBI ballistics tests that I've seen seem to weigh (no pun intended) in favor of a heavier, slow(er) moving slug as opposed to a light one going much faster.

    Depending on your school of thought, or which ever way you tend to lean, it all boils down to this- Shot placement is king.

    Dosent matter if you're slingin' a 235g chunk-o-lead or a 115g hollowpoint, if that slug hits em' in the electrical box, you're gonna shut em' down...and fast.:D
