Ammo?
 
What kind of ammo do you recommend I should get for my Glock 26 9mm I just bought?

Congrats! A cop I know is a huge fan and he says they will eat anything cheap to good. I don't own one xd guy here,lol. Also depends what you are looking to do with it.

I feed my Glock a steady diet of Blazer aluminum case .45 It's typically a little less expensive and is great range ammo. The Blazer 9mm is about $15 around here on the shelf, though I've seen it advertised online for as low as $10.

Glocks eat anything. Whatever you can find in bulk would be my recommendation. For defense ammo shoot a few boxes to make sure it feeds properly, I use Hornady Critical defense.

Glad to hear. I just bought a box till I can find some more. All the stores around here are sold out of just about everything. I'm gonna have to order online.

Federal American Eagle

Winchester USA (White Box)

What about +P ammo?
What is it?
Will it fit my gun?
Is it any good?

wizman86 02-03-2013 08:19 AM

+p ammo is a hotter load. It will be stamped on your slide if it is ok to use with your piece.

sputnik1988 02-03-2013 08:37 AM

Most autos will run +P as long as you don't shoot it too much.

A steady diet of +P will prematurely wear out a firearm, but some practice rounds and some for carry is 100% fine in a Glock.

GeneralPatton 02-03-2013 04:50 PM

I can't seem to remember where it is, but somewhere on the forums is a post about +P that does a good job of explaining it. Read that. I have some +P rounds, but I don't go shoot them at the range everytime. They are more my backup stash for times when I can't find anything else or if I new adjust someones attitude.
