    Hi Mas.

    I just finished reading "In The Gravest Extrme", and just started "The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry".

    Thanks for some very good info.

    I just traded for my 2nd Glock. It is a 19, gen 3, and it is going to be my carry weapon. I will have to put several rounds through it though before I will trust it fully. Although I am sure it will be fine, I want to be positive.

    I will use this to protect not just me, but my wife and two little girls, who I will protect until my death.

    My question is, what ammo would you recommend to use in the G19 for self defense?

    I was leaning towards the heaviest bullets, in hollow point of some type. But not sure what grain, type bullet, brand, +P+ or +P, etc.

    I trust your recommendation. That's why I asked!

    Thanks for everything!
    Greg

    I'm personally partial to 124-127 grain JHP at about 1250 foot-seconds nominal velocity.

    best,

    Thanks. It looks like the only thing I can get my hands on here is Buffalo Bore +P or +P+. Is that good ammo? Or should I order Gold Dot +P?

    Or is there another brand that would be better in the G19? I just want to make sure I have the right and best if I ever have to use it.

    Maybe I'm just overthinking it, but I just want the best to protect my girls!
    Thanks again for the info.

    Greg, Buffalo Bore is top quality ammo but I don't know of any shootings with the ammo you mentioned. The Gold Dot is a street proven choice in the 124 grain +P, proven from NYPD to Chicago PD to Las Vegas Metro PD.
