    Hey Neighbor, Here is some info on some good 9mm ammo at a very good price. You might give them a call and see if they have any left. Speer Gold Dot 124gr JHP +P, 50 round boxes @$14.00 INC SHIPPING, I usually order 500 rounds at a time, which is now up to $140, delivered. If interested, call (631) 738-6991 10AM-6PM E.S.T. Chesters Hunting and Fishing Supplies, Inc...232 Ronkonkoma Avenue, Ronkonkoma New York, 11779. No credit cards, USPS money orders accepted. Call first, reserve your order, send them your money order with a note reiterating your order. They ship fast and well. Good people, too.

    This load is the standard issue load of the NYPD.

    I use Cor-Bon, as I have for the past 20 years..... They work because they understand that velocity is the key to performance......

    I like Cor Bon for all calibers. Pistol calibers only in TOP BRANDS as Sig Sauer, Beretta or Glock weapons for 100% realibility, if cost is a concern, then a good .357 Mag. or .38 Spl. +P, anyway lots of practice is a must.

    I use Remington Golden Saber 124gr +P in my Beretta Px4 Storm. They're not too expensive and are listed in the top five 'one-shot stop' rounds in the book Stopping Power. I think it's rating is about 88% one-shot stops, the Fereal Hydrashock is about 92% and is listed as #1. I learned a lot from that book. I highly recommend it.
    It is to be observed that Right of Self-Defence, arises directly and immediately from the Care of our own Preservation, which Nature recommends to every one. . . , and that this right is so primary, that it cannot be denied on the basis that it is not "expressly set forth.
