Why do some gun manufacturers suggest NOT using ACP ammunition?
New here and to the gun scene in general. Looking to purchase my first gun and noticed something that didn't make sense to me. Why do some gun manufacturers suggest NOT using ACP ammunition?
I'm a little confused by what you're asking. Either a firearm is chambered for a ACP cartridge (.45, .38, .380, .32, .25) or it isn't. Are you thinking of +P or +P+ ammunition?
I know Glock says to only use plated bullets and not to use lead bullets, because of the type of rifling in the barrel. With plain lead bullets lead deposits build up quickly and foul the barrel.
If you mean +p and +p+ ammo, some guns are not made to handle the higher pressure of this type of ammo.

the best reason i can think of is that the gun in question is NOT chambered for an ACP round
