    Do you have any ammo recommendations or maybe some websites I can go to that will help me make up my mind?

    There are just so many choices it just seems difficult. I have seen statistics that the remington 125 gr had 76% one shot stops. But have also read that gold dot is very good along with a number of other manufacturers.

    I would be interested in your opinion.

    One shot knockdown is a myth! "If something is worth shooting, it's worth shooting twice!"

    If your call to Ruger (Telephone: 603-865-2442) confirms your handgun is capable of running +P ammo look at these:

    When I am looking at different ballistics charts, do I want to bullet that has the highest velocity & energy at the muzzle?
