    Mr. Ayoob,

    Any problems using Speer Gold Dot 124 gr.+p short barrel ammo in a Glock 17?

    Some feel that there's a possibility of that bullet going fast enough from a longer barrel that it opens a little too soon, possibly retarding penetration. If you're using the same ammo supply for both a short-barrel 9mm and one in service length, I'd suggest you go with the regular 124 grain +P Gold Dot in both.

    Hoping you'll forgive what some would consider an overcautious approach,
