    Just pulled the trigger on a NIB 9mm G10, cannot wait to get this gun!!!

    For you guys who own one (or two :steamed:), do you fire +P ammo?

    I have seen yours before on other forums, it definetly contributed to my decision.

    How often do you shoot +P? I read a lot about people calling SA and being told it is ok to fire +P as long as it is not a "steady diet" - what is considered a steady diet?

    steady diet = mainly shooting +P

    i shoot +P out of it maybe once a month or 2 to cycle the ammo.
    i think my % of +P to normal ammo is <10%

    Hey Don, how often do you carry the EMP vs the Brown?

    Congrats Brz....the EMP is a fabulous pistola. I'm debating replacing my 9mm HK with either an EMP9 or a 9mm Trojan at some point.

    i've carried the EMP most, or it's in the glove box.
    it's light and don't really notice wearing it in a VMII.

    I've shot Quack's and aside from his KC, it's my favorite of his bunch. It's smoooooth and cheap enough to shoot a lot. Win-win.

    Quack - have you ever tried Winchester Ranger T 127gr +P+? If so, how did it handle?
