I have always carried Hornady critical duty in my CC guns (glock 19, kahr cm9, and now S&W Shield 9mm). Hornady has always did well with my first two cc guns. However, it is harder to find Hornady defensive ammo. I read that a lot of people love Golden Sabre for their shield. I would like know what other shield owners have shot. With the price of defensive ammo and the lack of availability, I want to make sure I start with the right ammo selection. I will shoot a few boxes throught it just to make sure my gun likes the ammo. However, I do not want to go through a lot of ammo that is known to give the shield problems.
