    The wife just surprised me with a receipt paid in full of a Glock 17. I just picked it up. What a valentines day surprise for me. Especially because she just bought me a Smith and Wesson 442 two weeks ago. Yes I'm damn lucky.

    Anyways it's my first 9mm. Any recommendations on self defense ammo?

    I only carried this gun for a few hours but so far it's much easier than my Glock 30.

    Speer 124gr. +P for my G-17. You'll be getting an avalanche of posters recommending this round. Congrats on the gun.

    My G17 is a sweet shooter, I load it with either 127g +p+ Ranger T's or 124g +p Gold Dots.

    Speer Gold Dots. I had picked up some Critical Defense, but I'm going to burn it up when I find a warm day and refill with more Gold Dots.
