    Your CCW and Ammo Preference w/regards to Self Defense

    I’m curious… what is your preferred carry weapon, and the ammo you prefer to use for self defense purposes? And, what are your reasons for using that particular ammo?

    Thanks!


    My CCW is an H&K USP 40. I use the Winchester Silvertip 155 grain jacketed hollow point (X40SWSTHP). The 40 S&W round has an established and excellent track record on the street. I use the 135-155 grain JHP load because it kicks less and has higher kinetic energy and stopping power than the 180 gr. JHP loads.

    Glock 23, .40 caliber, 13 +1 rounds, Winchester Bonded PDX1 -- it is highly recommended. Hubby bought it for me so I am confident he knows what it can do if I ever have to use it.

    I've been carrying a S&W 1911PD but am considering switching to a Beretta Px4 Storm. I think it's time to go to double action (at least for that first shot) and the Storm had an excellent feel and I shot it well.
    I've been carrying the Winchester 230 gr. PDX1 JHP - it's an approved FBI load and that's good enough for me.
