124gr Federal HST +p

Snappy rounds that make the 115gr WWB FMJ that I use for practice feel like nothing at all. Might move to Speer Lawman for practice...

I'm kind of a skinny old fart, and I usually wear blue jeans and a tee shirt, so concealment can be problematic.
My favorite carry gun is a Smith & Wesson 642 revolver with CT laser grips...Light, durable, dependable, and VERY easy to conceal in a good pocket holster.
When I get duded-up and need something even more concealable, I pack a little Kel-Tec .32, also with a CT laser. Granted, it's a mouse gun, but it's WAYYY better than the Kimber that's sitting at home because I can't hide it easily.

Oops - I misread the topic and answered a question nobody asked. Slivertips in my Kel-Tec and Nyclads in my 642. The Nyclads were recommended to me by an S&W rep a few years back.

I like Federal Hydra-Shok, Speer Gold Dot, and Winchester Ranger SXT...I also think Cor-Bon makes very good personal defense ammo with both Pow'r Ball and DPX, but I've never bought any for myself.

65 grain .32 ACP

124 grain 9mm +P

125 or 158 grain .357 Magnum

135 grain .38 Special +P (Gold Dot Short Barrel Personal Protection)

180 grain .40 caliber

230 grain .45 ACP (although I used to carry 200 grain +P Gold Dots)

Default My CCW

Walther PPK (Interarms)

I choose it because of the price (deal I got) and comfort. I have a Ruger P94, S&W 586 but the PPK conceals nice and doesn't jab or stick me. I sometimes forget I have it on.

I believe the question was:

What is IN your CCW pistol?
BTW, I too have an Interarms Walther PPK and it is very concealable - I use Speer GDHP ammo because truncated cone type bullets like the Hornady XTP .380's don't feed reliably in this gun.
