    .45acp +p

    I recently purchased a Glock 36. My carry ammo is currently Speer Gold Dot 185 gr. A friend gave me a box of Fereral Hydra Shok Premium 185 gr +P.

    The standard .45 ACP loads were very managable. Will the +p loads have significantly more recoil? Will there be a significant increase in velocity with the Federal loads? And do I have to concern myself with overpenetration?

    If anyone uses this load and can answer any of these questions, I would appreciate it.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    You'll know when you fire it.
    It's not like going from a .38 to a .357 but the recoil is going to give it away that there's +p in there.

    In my experiences with 45+p the sound was what I noticed a difference in. I've shot +P in a Colt lightweight Commander, a Glock 21 and a Glock 30 and could not really feel a noticeable difference. I was expecting more than what it was.
