    New G19

    Hello, I am new to the forum. I just bought be a new g19 gen 4 last week. The first three of the serial is YUM and it was test fired on 03/13/15 which was friday the 13th. I also have a gen 4 g30 I bought to carry to after trying out a 19 I had to get one. I am new to the firearms scene myself so if I sound like a newbie thats because I am. I was wondering what kind of ammo is best for self defence and if some of you all could recommend 9mm loads to me. i currently have federal hst 124g loaded.

    That's a fine bullet. I use hornady custom myself. In my 9 and .380. Glocks eat just about anything.

    I hear a lot of praise for Speer gold dot. I can rarely find it in my area. But I hear good things about it.

    Welcome, and congrats! Very good guns there, you're starting off right.

    I currently have 124gr HST loaded as well, so I guess I can't make a better recommendation.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have a friend that uses speer gold dot 165g for his g23 rtf2, and at my lgs they run 34.00 after tax for 50. I wish I could find more hst here but everyone is out. Nice n82 pro you have there, that is the same holster I have, its very comfy and is my first holster.

    test out a few and see how they shoot.

    I'm carrying Golden Sabers in my 19(124+P) and 30sf(230gr) because my thats what my LGS carries on their shelves.

    HSTs should be as good as any premium SD round, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

    I have read good reviews on the hst and got ahold of a single box of 20, and until I can get more to test fire with I may try the gold dot.

    I've used the Gold Dots and the Golden Sabers, I'd have no issues at all using either. The HST's I like as well but can be a bit hard to come by locally here. I've had no trouble with Golden Sabers, matter of fact that's what my G17 has in it tonight.

    Thanks for the link Glockstar. All I see is plus p hst I haven't shot plus p anything yet. Is there a difference in recoil since it is a higher pressure round? I am used to my 45 acp though so I believe I could get back on target just as quick.
