Well, that's 'cause I just showed her headshot, I wanted to spare your eyes. The rest of the pic was full bodied nudity....

Thanks for the info. I will definitely be practicing but am trying to learn as much as I can about firearms and ammo from seasoned folks.

One other question. it was asked if my weapon is rated for +P or +P+ ammo. What is +P and +P+ ammo?

I would imagine that it would be rated for that but will definitely check before I use it in my weapon. Again, I appreciate everyone's help

These are factory rounds that are loaded to a hotter, or higher, chamber pressure, therefor launching the bullet at faster speeds with greater intent to harm.

+P is first, +P+ is a bit hotter than that.

230 grains of .45 ACP, with a +P rating, shooting from a 5 inch barrel in my 1911 generates about 890 to 900fps ( or so depending on temperature ).

This translates to a big, heavy bullet moving fast enough to enter like a quarter and leave like a grapefruit.

Default A Great round

Ranger SXTs or HST +p are great for the .45. Much destruction to be had from these rounds. Just make sure whatever you choose cycles reliably.

I use HydraShock for PD rounds but the best round is only as good as the placement so consistant practice is as important. When I practice I shoot fmj rounds of the same weight as my PD rounds then finish practice with one mag of the PD rounds to double check feeding and placement.

Default HydraShocks for me.

Autos can be finicky about what they eat. If it fails to cycle, you either have a single shot, or a poorly designed club. Regardless of whether the bullet is the Plutonium Nitrate Rhino Shredder.

And a thought I have had expressed to me- find out what the closest law enforcement agency that uses your caliber issues. Just in case you ever face a lawyer demanding to know WHY you chose ammo designed to produce the maximum injury possible. "I picked that one because the deputies standing over there carry it. That's what the department issues to all their officers- so I figured it would be a good choice. "
My same thoughts c3. Our local Sheriff's Dept. carries Hydra. in their Glock 21's. Good enough for them=good enough for me I carry a Colt 1911!--Better I think than TupperWare
