As far as I know it can handle +p in moderate amounts just like most other guns. Congrats on the purchase. I almost got one as well, but ended up getting a XD9SC instead. I wish the gun shows that everyone else seems to get deals at would come around here. I just went to a gun show here yesterday and just like always the prices were WAY too high. Can't find any deals at the gun shows here, but for some reason I keep trying haha. Congrats!
