    What do you guys think would be the best self and home defense ammo for a glock21 gen 4? I know .45 is much more than you need for home defense but I would rather keep some as a backup to my 9xdm that I have hornady crit defense loaded in it. The glock would be my back up on my side. Plus I shoot better with the .45. Thanks guys.

    Thnx guys. I'll probably pick some more crit def up for the 45 and see if they r as good in it as the 9. Plus thinking about trying some federal hst if I could find them anywhere. And Speer gold dot.

    I live in Illinois. Don't know where to buy the hst at? So far no shops sell em. And the tap I can't find also. What's different compared tap to crit def.

    The Hornady tap doesnt have the plastic tip inside the HP. The Hornady "Custom" loads are very similar to the TAP also. You may check them out too

    Consider the Winchester Ranger T series too. Deadly accurate and reliable expansion. Good prices online too.

    Not sure if you can get it there but look up RCBD ammo from San Antonio,TX that stuff is wicked purpose build for home defense will not exit a human torso.
