Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I have two 9mm pistols (Beretta M9 and Ruger P89). They're both loaded up with cheap-ass FMJ ammo. I'm far from a ballistics expert, but FMJ is a potent round; perhaps not as good as an expensive hollow-point, but potent just the same.

Years back, I heard that FMJ is less prone to jamming and has better penetration. I liked those qualities and stuck with them. Besides: that's all I ever carried in the US Army.

Again... I'm a virtual "babe in the woods" when it comes to my knowledge of ballistics. FMJ is my choice. I figure shot placement is king.

My house we stock the 115 gr Hornady Critical Defense, and then keep a few ammo cans of 115 gr ball for range time. I selected 115 gr because my wife shoots it well, and she has wrist problems, so need to keep the recoil down. One of her pistols is a Sig 365, so heavier rounds would have been an issue for her.

I wanted all of our 9mm guns to use the same ammo, so that I don't have to bother with which gun gets which ammo. Every gun is zero'd for the same round. We tried a few different types of ammo, and the Hornaday Crit Def seemed to function well in all 6 of the guns we tried.

Hers = Berretta 92FS, Sig 365
Mine = G17, CZ Scorpion (suppressed)
Son's = G17, S&W Shield
