Mas: I would like your opinion on my current carry round for my Glock 23 and S&W 642. In the .38 I have been carrying the 125gr +P, and in .40 I have been carrying the 165 gr. rounds. Both function well and are very manageable for me. In both calibers, is the golden saber a proven defensive tool? I started using the Saber's in my G23 because a friend in the Missouri Highway Patrol used them, then when I purchased the 642 it was a natural choice but I would be open to trying some new ammo if it had a better street record.
