Unless you plan on using it for practice ammo, an occasional diet of +P isn't going to cause any excessive wear and tear on either of those pistols. A few boxes to test reliability, and then a few more rounds downrange a few times a year to burn through old carry ammo so it can be replaced with fresh won't hurt a thing.

I've been using +P like that in my PM9 for years.

Set a man on fire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.
