Not a what's best thread jus curious as to what ya'll are carrying for your carry round? Manufactuer, Weight and caliber?

While I dont carry concealed yet, I do keep my 45 happy with Win Ranger Talons RA45T and RA45TP, I also like to keep a few mags full of Federal HST P45HST2 all 230 grain and all I believe to be very reliable and will do its job if required... I am not one for the +p's but got a good deal on them.....

Good choices just trying to see where the money is being spent.. I believe any will do, and some are better than others whatever cycles best in your weapon....and HELL yes I am trying to get my post count up!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol3:

I have been carrying Hydra-Shocks for years and hunt with them with my 44mag and seen what it will do so I am satisfied.

you know I love some talons and rangers but i remember chatting with Tim Thompson one time and I asked him what his cary round was and he said 230gr FMJ. I asked why not a hp round. he said the 1911 will 99% of the time always feed it and sometimes shooting through walls and objects is something he wants to do.

Yeah I heard that..........I have heard alot of folks carrying FMJ as of late....I have just concluded it was due to lack of better option with the craze and all....but hey it might be something to it....My XD will eat all I feed it so I am comfortable with and stock and use Hornady TAP, Rem Golden Sabre Bonded, and have found a few hundred rounds of Federal Tactical bonded along the way.....Ranger's are easy to come by in the RA45TP if you like +P's I for one dont.

I mainly carry revolvers, 357 mag., and they are loaded with 125gr Gold Dots. When I tote a 45, it's loaded with a Gold Dot in the tube and hardball in the mag.

I like a couple of Hydra-shoks then FMJ to fill up mag. Theory is if it takes more than 2, then it really doesn't matter what comes next. Plus, You can use a box of High$$$ ammo in a lot more mags.

I just happen to have a post count generator program for just $ 100 shipped. :p Main carry is a 1911, always 230 gr., sometimes with some Black Talons I still have from years ago, sometimes FMJ, especially in winter when ya might havta deal with heavy clothing.

My PPK stays loaded with FMJ, a .380 at close range ain't gonna mushroom much anyways...and I'm looking for good penetration.

Point well made!! Anything after the first shot or two is hailmarry anyway....Suppression fire really....I will have to follow your lead on that...I dont think the BG is going to think any less of ya if he gets got with cheap ammo over the beautifully advertised Law Enforcement rounds...WHich I think is purely a marketing skeemmm....People always want what they are told they cant.....

I like to carry hollow points in whatever I carry! But, in the winter, I do tend to carry ball ammo, just in case! My dad always loaded on hollow point then 2 ball. He said, "One to stop 'em, then 2 to punch holes in 'em!"

Very much in agreement with ya msredneck.....lol but what really interests me is normal folks and realistic weapons and ammo usage. I am on quite a few other forums and they are slap full of mall ninja's and the assorted types..lol if ya know what I mean.. I dont do BullS&^t so that's why I ask. I have spent prob way to much money on ammo and yeah I bought into the hype before but I feel much more centered now and just wanted to see what ya'll are carrying.. I have a couple buddies that are LE and they pretty much carry rangers, some goldots....

Be careful out there. Never carry reloads for self defense. A prosecuting attorney might twist this in to pre-meditated.
