    Hornady Critical Defense in my G19 in the bedside safe, Critical Duty in the G26 I carry.

    A combination of #1 and 00 buck in the Mossberg 590 in the closet safe, with 00 buck and slugs as backup.

    I personally Like Corbon DPX, however wanting to try some new rounds out:)
    In terms of what feeds and shoots reliably from my EDC, I prefer Speer Gold Dot 9mm +p 124 Gr. Short Barrel Hollow Points. They feed perfectly in my EDC and have performed perfectly with with zero malfunctions. Now, what I prefer in terms of it's effectiveness? I haven't had to use my EDC yet so I won't be able to answer that question.

    Interesting to see what people trust. I personally think MOST (not all) modern bullets will serve you well. One thing I did find interesting when I switched to .40 S&W, in all the test I have seen (for what they are worth) show 165gr loads penetrating deeper on average than 180gr. I usually choose heavy for caliber. As such I shoot 165gr Gold Dots or HST. HST especially leaves large holes.

    Hornady Critical Defense in my .380 LCP. I'm less worried about maximum bullet performance in my .357 mag, so usually just whatever 158 gr HP's I have on hand.

    I ran Ranger T's 127GR +P+ in my last Gun fighting class and the reunion class last year and all performed at first class levels. Last year I ordered 1500 more rounds of the same which arrived on Election Day!. They work and function in my twin G-19's. I also have a stash of Cor-Bon DPX for my 9MM Glocks. No regrets on any of these as they are Street Performers.

    I've always used Speer Gold Dots. Mainly due to the fact it is what the larger departments in my area use. I figure if it's good enough for them it's good enough for me!

    .38 -135 grain
    9mm- 124 +p
    .40s&W - 180 grain
    .45acp - 230 grain
