    yes but not for a regular diet.
    Have we been shopping lately???? we must get out and shoot I am in the middle of a full remodel on my kitchen so spare time is at a premium but I can always find time to shoot.

    if we can get together with your friend I'll bring 5 or 6 different + P rounds for 45 and let him try them. I'm currently running the Federal HST + P rounds in my Micro Compact. Did you see that one or did I get it after we shot last time??? By the way hows the holster working ?

    my friend lives in washington.
    he called just to BS and we always wind up talking firearms.
    while i was already on here asking about polishing he asked if he could shoot +p in that 45 so i posted the question here for him.
    i told him to join and its a great site.

    frostyeyes,
    you didnt have the micro when we shot.I bet it's an awesome piece though!
    I recently aquired an xd9sc since then though.and i love it.
    the holster is alright but it seems to stick out a bit more than i want it too,but it is still nice, thank you.

    Like Bud said...if you are going to shoot +P then add a heavier recoil spring.

    The Colt.45 pistol itself can run on a steady diet of +P but, you should absolutely add a stiffer spring.

    The Colt .45 acp cartridge can only GET so "Plus"...because the cartridge case walls can only stand just so much PLUS before either rupturing or causing possible extraction problems.

    You can run as much factory +P through the gun as you want to though.

    Just move up in recoil spring weight.
