No cast lead bullets, jacketed only.
Keep your finger away from the trigger until you're ready to fire.
That's about it.

Every gun will like different ammo. Even two guns of the exact same make and model made at the same time with serial numbers just one digit apart can like different ammo's. Best thing to do is pick a few that have good reputations and shoot a box of each through your gun. I few I would suggest to try are Golden Saber, Gold Dot, Hydra-Shok, Ranger-T, Hornady Critical Defense or CorBon.

My personal favorite for a .40 is 165 grain Golden Saber but try them all yourself and see what your gun likes, what you like and what you shoot well out of your gun. It will be a costly experiment but one that could save your life. Plus, it's fun.

I use Winchester bonded pdx-1. My Glock 21sf runs it with no trouble.
If I'm at the range, I'll run Remington UMC, and I've run Hornady critical defense. Both with no problems.

If day if you try ANY brand/load/etc. run a box through your Glock @ the range BEFORE you try it under duress...
