    FNP 9 Self Defense ammo? help

    Hey guys back again hoping you can educate me on another topic i haven't really looked into. Im practicing for my Conceal Carry range test and i want to know your experience/opinion on good self defense or carry ammo for the FNP 9. I want to make sure i practice with what i am going to be carrying. Usually just use FMJ's at the range and looking to see the difference between FMJ's and carry ammo such as hollow points and so on. Anyone that could point me in the right direction would be a great help.

    thanks guys! Stay safe and alert out there, you never know whats around the corner!

    And this: Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo

    Choose one of the loads listed, and buy a box or two. Bear in mind that while all of them perform pretty much the same, some may be considerably more expensive and/or harder to find than others. Fire at least one entire magazine out of every magazine you plan on using for carry/defense. If the round is 100% reliable and shoots with what you consider acceptible accuracy and control, you have a round that works well in your pistol. Stock up, and don't sweat it any more.

    What Cuda66 said. I have an FNX-9 it shoots everything I put in it, so just follow Cuda66's suggestion and you will be fine.

    It would surprise me if you do not get several post suggesting various ammunition, so here goes.

    I use:

    Golden Sabre 124gr +P
    Golden Sabre 124gr
    Ranger T 125gr +P
    Federal 135gr HS

    They all go bang, they all feed in my FNX, and they all go in the general direction of the target.

    Like Cuda66 said, try a few, pick out one that works reliably in your firearm, and try not to read too many articles about which ones are better.
