    My favorite gun is the one I have in my pocket; my favorite bullet is the one that is in the chamber.

    If talking strictly for defensive purposes, my choice is Buffalo Bore .38 Special non-+P LSWCHP "Chicago loads".

    I think they are all pretty good, try some rounds through the gun to make sure there aren't any feed problems, some guns just don't like certain brands it seems. I use Hornady in both my .45 and 9mm and although have never had to use it for defense, have never had any problems with jams or anything.

    I know jack-all about this stuff. I point it, squeeze the trigger, it goes boom, boom, boom, zombie dies. I'm happy.
    But that said, I've got the Golden Sabres in the Kimber UCII now, and they've never left a zombie standing.
    I would like to hear some opinions on frangibles, in case I have to take the zombies out on a plane or something. Any recs?

    I like "old reliable", Federal Hi-Shoks. They may be dated, but they are tried and true. And they are cheap enough that I can afford to practice with my carry round.

    I prefer the Speer golddot. It is good in all calibers, and is availible in most sporting goods stores.

    I just picked up a box of .40 Winchester Ranger 135gr the other day for $22. I've not shot these rounds before so I have no idea how they'll perform but I was told they're some of the better rounds out there. Anyone here ever shot them and if so how did you like them? I could have bought a box of 20 Federal Hydra Shok for around the same price but elected to go with the Rangers.

    It is kinda like a ford chevy thing with all agreeing on what you are confident with and accurite with.Since I carry a kind of off caliber my choices are a li more narrowed.My range ammo and prime back up is siver bear 94 gr JHP.My prime is hornady 95 gr XTP.They both shoot without failure and out of my weapon they they both shoot the same.The only difference I found through wet phone book and homemade ballistics gel made with Knox gelatin is the hornady expands better.I like the HP as it creates a larger wound because for the simple answer being it is larger in diameter.You can argue forever with ballistic charts and physicist expert opinion and still no one would agree.Also the majority of LEO carry JHP and I am going on what I read not irrefutable fact.But if in a court setting a man using a LEO approved round and not a home reload nasty evil round will win his case.On a nother subject-Scooter,pm me man.I also was a A.F.SP( by your avatar) and am old school scooter trash and would like to hear from you.

    Being new to the semi-auto scene I really haven't gotten to try too many types of JHP's. I own a Sig P250c .40 and the other day I picked up a box of Winchester Ranger 135gr for about $24 (box of 50). I found some Federal Hydra Shoks at our local Wal-Mart for about the same price for 20 rounds. I'm going to test the Rangers out this weekend to see how well they expand. I know it's a light bullet but I've been told by some friends of mine that are deputies and troopers that a lighter bullet usually gets better expansion. What do you guys think? These are the first Rangers that I have seen in 135gr - most of the ones I know of are 165gr.
