    Hello mas its great to be able to converse with you here.

    Im to be changing to 9mm soon as my carry gun, and for a long time ive been comparing these rounds, i just cant decide they pentrate about the same, hst expands a little better, gold dot has more energy. i have seen the official ATK testing of both of these. the hst has slightly wider permanent cavity but you can really see the temporary cavity advantage the gold dot has. whats your opinion? http://le.atk.com/general/irl/videos.aspx

    You pretty much nailed the balance of attributes. I wouldn't feel unarmed with either load, but personally, I would definitely go with the 124 grain +P.

    best,
