I have heard the Hornady Critical DUTY is made for greater penetration for something more along the lines of law enforcement applications (shooting through doors, etc), so I stay away from that and use the Hornady Critical DEFENSE.

124gr Golden Sabers in my DB9
147gr Golden Sabers in my XD9 subcompact
I went with Golden Sabers for their proven expansion but also being at a better price than some of the other top brands.
Winchester PDX-1, Hornady Critical Defense, Federal HST and Hydra-Shok, Speer Gold Dot - all work well in my 9mm handguns. I mainly run 124 gr versions, with the exception of the CD which is 115 gr.

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!

Winchester pdx1 defender or hornady critical defense. In my glock 19. It's not the 'best' defensive caliber but its cheap and fub to shoot and it will get the job done.
