    Welcome to the Glock Forum Lazyboy06 !!

    +1 on the Hornady Critical Defense...it's what I carry in my G30SF.

    I have also carried Federal Hydra-shoks and Winchester Silvertips...

    My preferred for both home & carry is the Federal HST, however, when I can't get it, I use Speer Gold Dot.

    I'm wanting to pick up some Winchester Ranger Talon 230 gr. for my 21, but for now I'm using Hornady ZobmieMax. It's the same as the Critical Defense, but green and about $3 cheaper for a box of $20. Any other recommendations?

    I wasn't sure what to get. LGS owner suggested Hornandy CD so that's what I have.

    Does everyone keep there defense ammo in its own magazine? and just take out the mag when they go shoot at the range, then just load the magazine back for carry or placed around house/car? Do you keep the magazine full? How long do you keep the defense ammo in the same clip?
