    Our kindness may be the most persuasive argument for that which we believe.

    I'd take either. I prefer a heavier bullet, but I also prefer the GD over the GS. If forced to choose...probably the GS.

    But I'd take a 124, or better yet, a 147 Gold Dot over both of 'em.

    don't know about those particular bullets....but for my defensive ammo, I have 124 gr. Perhaps I should consider adding some 147 to the mix...

    Of the two, the 127 g GS load.

    Either will assist in stopping an attack...shoot with both and decide which you prefer...'talking' about it won't cut it. OMO

    124gr GDHP. If not available, then I'd go with the Golden Saber. That's what I mostly carry in the 40S&W and the 45acp anyway.

    Remington Golden Sabers are the SD ammo of choice for me in my Sig P239 9mm and Ruger LCP .380

    I've heard nothing but good things abut them and also like that they make the heaviest (102 grain) .380 SD round on the market.

    Of the two I'd go with Golden Saber. It is what I used to carry now I won't carry anything other than HST as it is a far better round than either of those.

    Either one should be sufficient to "terminate negotiations".
