    They make Gold Dots for "short barrelled" handguns. If anyone knows of someone who makes loaded ammunition using their short barreled Gold Dots I and others here would probably appreciate it.

    Thanks for the word on Precision One. They're offering "380 ACP" +P. Ain't no such round. They responsibly warn shooters to only use them in Glock 47s. Makarov 380 conversions are probably also safe. If you want to put some hand surgeon's kid through college, use it in your LCP.

    The 9mm 147 Gr hollow point sounds interesting. I think that they'd be a nice round for the Glock 9mm.
    I use their .380 XTP Hollow point offering. Itís the only .380 on the market that met the minimum penetration and proper expansion of the FBI protocol. I donít use +P in anything but would never in a round that has no SAMMI spec for it like .380.

    Most name brand HP ammo does about the same. Find what shoots best in your gun and run with it.

    I'm currently carrying Hornady Critical Duty 135 grain +p. I have carried Speer Gold Dot and Federal HST, both in 124 grain +p.
