I'm partially disabled, and recoil is becoming a problem. It's one of the reasons that I have switched back to Glock, especially for the 3rd Generation G21SF and the G30, both with factory night sights, laser/light combos, LWD threaded barrels, ss recoil guides and springs, and a Gemtech Blackside, which reduces recoil... At night, the G30 has suppressor duty, with 13rd G21 mags, and G30 adapters, and an M6X... During the day, either G21SF or G30 ride in Blackhawk fanny packs, loaded with documentation and extra mags and CR123A batteries... I have no problem hitting what I can see. Training and proper equipment go a long way towards giving one experience based confidence... What I need, is the best penetrating round for the 230gr, standard velocity, .45acp ammo... I have to use two hands, an isosceles stance, to be sure of placement. No longer able to move as fast, as in my youth, I know that in the event of a firefight, I'll probably be wounded, if not killed... Therefore, I must be sure that what rounds I put on target, will penetrate, and terminate the threat... Placement/front sight, placement/front sight, placement/front sight... You get the idea... More home invasions are occurring in my AO. These are being attempted, and more successfully than not, by multiple perpetrators... Weapons are being brandished, and shots fired, in that translates into greater danger- even to those who are prepared... Currently I use Winchester's PDX1, bonded JHPs. They're the best performing JHP, outside of Corbon or Magtech SCHP loads. My question: Which is better for penetrating barriers, windshields or car bodies? Same could be asked of interior walls within a dwelling... IF I have to defend Mom, who's 89, I'm not going to worry about over penetration- just killing the bad guys, before they can kill us... So, what is the best "combat" ammo available for the .45acp, in standard pressure, that will penetrate to vitals, and terminate the threat? For metal on "meat," the PDX1 is my choice, but I still need to know what's best for taking out the trash/through barriers... In the event of facing such threats, time, diminished stamina and strength will be factors working against me... Speed and precision will be my only allies... I look forward to your input.
