    Best be careful. Most "Experts" will tell you it's legally not a good idea to carry handloads in your personal defense weapon.

    It's pretty common knowledge that "Firearm Experts" advise against using reloads for 2 main reasons. First is reliability. It's too easy to contaminate a primer, undercharge, or have an over or under length case or some other unforeseen problem with reloads. Second is liability. If you are actually involved in a shooting and even if you are cleared by the police there is a good chance you will still get sued by the bad guy or his next of kin. An unscrupulous lawyer can try to say that you are really a vicious killer that cooked his own special killer load with intent to inflict maximum harm to my "Poor Client". Take a jury that don't understand firearms and you could have a very costly problem even if you wind up winning. This is the main reason that People like Massad Ayoob and other "Big Gun" firearm trainers advise against handloads in you self defense gun. They're great for practice, but not for carry. A good rule of thumb is find out what your local police use and use the same.

    That is some great advice. I never looked at reloads in that light before.

    I will have to check with my local PDs to see what they shoot in their duty pistols. Awesome advice!
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    These are a few threads that I found that had some very useful information after searching a few minutes. What's wrong with the opinion of the sales staff? They're working the ammo counter because they're the most knowledgeable people in the store, right?

    LOL! Are you serious?

    Ah, so many friendly people on the internet and so little time.

    To the OP. I use the Speer Gold dot 124 gr +p and the Remington 147 Golden Saber standard pressure rounds in both my 9mms as well as my G36 .45. Either of um will do the job quite nicely.

    i would find out what local law enforcement uses and carry that. because that way if you are involved in a shooting incident, some over eager prosecuter can't claim you intended to do excess damage by carrying a hot load. if the police use it, it should be good enough for citizens. imho
