    First in foremost this is not a debate/argument I’m just curious as to what the fellow GTers are carrying.

    I’ll start, I carry Winchester “White Box” 9mm JHP 115 and 147 grain.

    What do you carry?

    I have a few hundred on hand and even though I shoot what I have been carrying daily every few years and replace with fresh stored rounds, I will be carrying this load for a while.

    I need to find a similar load that I feel as strongly about for my 9mm Shield which only gets carried in occasion.

    Winchester makes a new carry ammo called Silver Tips in 9mm also, you might want to give that a try, I know I will. I got a relative who’s paying me back some money tomorrow so I’ll order a couple boxes of those.

    That’s why I’m glad my grandma has property out in the county where I live, I got make shift targets made from scraps of metal and wood that I find beside the roads in neighborhoods.
