    Even in the manual for my HK P30 it says +p not recommended.
    for me i wouldnt even want to think about using something that was stated in manual do not use +p....

    i dont do that with my trucks, cars, and I'm sure NOT going to do with something is suppose to protect me.....

    Ever hear of liability? That's what they're protecting. If some doofus went out and shot nothing but 127gr +p+ in his gun and broke it then complained to the mfgr, they aren't going to be liable.

    Every single gun manufacturer will tell you the same bs line "+p not recommended". If you shoot a few boxes of defense ammo in +p it won't break I guarantee. Think about this, 124gr NATO standard 9mm is loaded to +p levels and it's accepted by probably every major manufacturer as being ok since they adhere to the same standards as everyone else in regards to SAAMI/NATO specs.

    Do what you want, but personally no matter what the manual says, a service sized auto in good condition will not break from +p rounds. Springs will wear out faster sure, but the gun will not fail unless it's poor quality to begin with.

    No offence this is your opinion, not a fact. I OWN a 6906, Im not going to try +ps just to make a point. my Manual does not say, not recommend, it says DON"T. You of course can do what you please, But i would remind you that when this gun first came out, 9mm nato was
    115 grain standard ball, not 124+p if thats what it is now.I just don't
    want to see ANYONE hurt, even if it's very remote chance.
