    124gr Hydra-Shok. I only carried FMJ when the Army said I had to...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Speer Gold Dot 124gr+p, department issued but I would carry it anyway.
    If we treat every gun as if it was loaded, then why not treat every individual as if they are armed.

    I voted other since honestly i will carry dammed near anything in the 115 to 124 grn range . Normaly its 124 hydro shocks , since i have a stock of them , but honestly it does not manner to me as long as its a hp . I tend to believe its where you shoot them , not what you shoot them with that counts .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    +1 here. I tried various loads and companies, and the gold dot was hands down best for expansion and penetration.

    147Gr subsonic for crowded areas.............I also carrt the Gecko BAT bullets (nylon tip that blows off to reveil a "reversed trash can cover" coming at you) about a 72gr hollowpoint..........The BAT is a specialized round that expends 100% of it's energy in less than 2" of penetration

    Winchester ranger 127gr. +p+ sxt. I've tested alot of different 9mm rounds, and this is by far the best I've tested in wet phone books. Hydrashok 124gr. +p+ tactical is a real good round also.
