    Gen 3 19c - Winchester ranger in right now
    If I find a deal on a proven ammo then I stock up.

    As a Newbie, I'm not sure how to decide between 124 and 147gr. Why do you carry the 147g?

    In the wheel guns I like the Winchester Silver Tips and in the Glocks I like the Speer Gold Dots. But there are others out there that are great.

    Be aware that there's a difference between 124gr and 124gr +P. The +P is more powerful. As long as you buy quality defensive cartridges like many of those mentioned in this thread, you can't go wrong with either 124gr +P or 147gr, don't over think it. Some folks, especially older ones, just prefer the heavier, slower moving bullets over the lighter and faster ones, same reason why so many people still prefer the .45 ACP.

    Speer GD 124gr +P, have not found anything that outperforms it consistently yet.

    Glock 17 9mm.
    124gr. +P Speer Gold Dot.
    I like the fact that it's a bonded bullet. All tests seem to indicate that it performs well in tests with most all media. I think the only thing I can think to say about the round that would detract from it is that the French use it.

    230 grain Golden Saber. I really like that round...and it feeds very well through my pistol.

    None of your damn business!!
    Depends on what I am carrying at the time.

    Most of the time...

    9mm...115 hollow point Remington bulk 100 rnds from Wal-Mart. Its old hollow point technology but they have tweaked it a little and its good stuff.

    .45 acp.....230 grn HP Winchester WWB...again Wal-Mart.

    .40 S&W....130 grn HP Federal HST.... very accurate out of my G27.
    .40 S&W....165 grn HP Winchester Ranger....easy to shoot out of my G27

    I will now be carrying my new to me G27 all the time now.

    Best
