    9mm Gold Dot +P Ammo.

    Hi,
    I'm new here.
    I have a Short Barrel 9mm (3.1 inches) and was wondering if
    anyone can tell me if the SB +P Ammo recoil is considerably
    more than the Standard Pressure loads, or if it's not really that noticable.
    I have the +P SB's in my .38 and I can't notice the difference.

    I have fired standard, +p, and +p+ from my Glock 19 and have noticed very little difference. I have fairly large hands and tend to muscle it a little bit.

    Its really all personal experience I think. If you are used to shooting +p .38's, then you shouldn't have any problems with the 9mm's unless your firing a weapon that just doesn't fit your hand well.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Weight and how well the pistol fits your hand will have a great deal how a person feels recoil.I can tell the difference between +P and standard ammo in my Kel
    tec P-11 but in a G-19 it was hard
    to notice a difference.

    Thru my 226 ST - I doubt I can really tell - pretty large and heavy gun.

    I practice with std pressure but carry +P and run those for practice too now and again..

    Sparks, I noticed in one of your other posts that your 9mm is the Springfield XD9SC. I also have the XD9SC and as a small guy... 5'6" 145# with small hands, I notice only negligible difference between STP and +P. I carry and practice with both the Remington Golden Saber 124gr and 124gr +P

    I practice with standard pressure due to costs but about once every two months I fire my carry magazines full of Gold Dot 124gr. SB. They are a little snappier but in a real life shooting scenario I doubt one would ever notice.
