    Both will stop a bad guy. Besides penetration, higher grain means "more lead to spread." A faster bullet will make more of a "splat impact."

    I give the edge for the 124 +p in a short barrel.

    I am not a ballistics expert or a cop that has been both types of 9mm shot at bad guys.

    Massad Ayoob's opinion in his book, based on his findings with other cops, was my main influence.

    Maybe you are going to the wrong Ranges?

    When I go to a public range I try to go during "off" hours, as there are too many idiots for my taste. Also, I prefer to not run in to people I've had to deal with in my job. Lastly, I'm becoming a big advocate of wearing my bullet resistant level III vest at the Range for said idiots.

    Sorry to derail the thread. As far as ammo choices, I see you went with 100 of each. Personally I would pick one and buy at least 250 rounds of it. Run the first 200 through your gun and if you have no malfunctions and what not, load the next fifty in your magazines and carry that for six months to a year.

    Then, in six months to a year, buy another fifty. Shoot your carry ammo out of your gun and spare magazines and reload with fresh stuff. Just make sure the fresh stuff is the same EXACT ammo as what you just shot out of your gun. If not, start all over with another 250 Rounds.

    IMO firing one magazine worth of HST, or w/e JHP you're going to use as a carry round, is not enough for a function check. Multiply the number by no less than 10 and closer to 20.

    +1 on that. Even in my Glocks I want more of a test then that and they "eat anything."

    Good adviseÖ. I think thatís the way we were taught, and I fallow same today.

    Only now that Iím having a harder time finding an ammo locker to raid and I have to pay for it, I only swap out once a year.
