    Not the +P. I use the 135g in my Kimber Solo. Works great. Anything less than 135 BTW for a Solo will make you want to get rid of it.

    I was thinking that weight in +p will give decent expansion and penetration.Currently using winchester +p+ in 127 gr .A little too much recoil for fast follow up shots.Figured i will shoot one box of cd and see how it does and save the other box for edc.

    It'll work quite well in a CW9.

    I use it in my xd 9. Works well. I like the heavy weight but in +p you still get good velocities for expansion.

    My EDC (Glock 17) is loaded with it...shoots straight and performs well through various barriers...

    from what i understand the critical duty was designed for full sized (duty) hand guns, with full length barrels. it may produce more muzzle flash/blast and recoil when used in compact guns.

    I have used it, I noticed the rubber tip seems to drag on the feed ramp a little bit of my 19 but it feeds just fine, I like the idea of a 135g +p round, it has a little weight & the extra punch

    I have CD 115gr FTX that cycles through my PF9 very well. I have never thought to try the 135gr. Maybe I'll give that a shot (no pun intended).

    From what I've read...Critical Duty was designed for LEO in their carry weapons due to better "barrier" penetration.

    Critical Defense was designed for..well "Defensive" purposes aka Self Defense ammunition.
