Congratulations on a great choice.
It will pretty much shoot anything you feed it just fine.

I recommend you stay away from winchester white box here's why I stay away from them. http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1507324

I love cci blazer aluminum cased ammo. My g23 does too. Best value out there IMO

Personally never had a WWB issue. I've probably fed 2500-3000 rds of it through my Ruger without a hiccup. Lawman, Monarch, Blazer Brass & Steel, all have worked fine.

Tula is the only ammo I've had problems with. They are loaded noticeable lighter than even WWB. Without fail I also have at least 1rd per box that doesn't fire first go round. Hard Russian primers...

For practice, I like Speer Lawman 124g FMJ. For self defense loads, either Winchester Ranger 127g+P+HPs or Speer Gold Dot 124g +P HPs are good loads. I tend to stay away from the 115g bullets as there have been reported having ejection problems. I have not though, with my Glock m19 Gen 4, that I bought in January of 2012.

Congrats and welcome!

If you don't reload yourself, a good/cheap option for range ammo is to shop online at:

I've been using reman 9mm by Freedom Munitions and Georgia Arms and they are both great IMO - clean and reliable.
