    Hello Noob and Welcome from SE Michigan.
    Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?

    If you're in the Columbia area, go to a shop called Lawman's, and pick up a box or two of Speer Gold Dot 124 grain +P 9mm ammunition.

    Great stuff. The "+P" designation means it's a hotter load, or has more powder, thus a higher muzzle velocity and energy than a non +P round. Typically 25% above if I recall. +P+ is one step above that, but not all guns are rated to handle +P+ ammo, and there is no standard for +P+ in regards to the overcharge, so it can be dangerous to the gun. +P however, works in pretty much everything for 9mm.

    Welcome from Florence, SC...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Hello, QuickCarry, and welcome from Missouri to a really great forum. Good people and info here!

    I'm thinking that P+ and +P are the same - basically means increased pressure over a standard load. +P+ is even more pressure than +P. Many experts think the additional "+" ammo is mostly hype vs giving any real advantage. As you'll hear often, the real key to stopping a threat is the same as the key in real estate: "location, location, and location" (of where you place multiple rounds in the threat).

    For good information on choosing SD ammo, check out this report:

    Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo

    If you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good SD instructional classes in addition to safety classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructinal information from an expert, and free.

    And, best wishes for a safe, prosperous New Year to you and yours.

    Welcome. As to your question about +P and +P+. These indicate that they are loaded to a higher pressure. Be sure to consult your owner"s manual to make sure your gun is engineered to handle these higher pressure loads. Shooting these loads in a gun not made to handle them can be dangerous.
