SR9c Ammo ??
The paragraph below is right out of the manual for my new SR9c:
The SR-SERIES pistols are compatible with all factory ammunition of the correct caliber loaded to U.S. Industry Standards, including high-velocity and hollow-point loads, loaded in brass, aluminum, or steel cartridge cases. No 9mm Parabellum or .40 S&W ammunition manufactured in accordance with NATO, U.S., SAAMI, or CIP standards is known to be beyond the design limits or known not to function in these pistols.
My question is, are “+P” and “+P+” ammunition considered/also known as “high-velocity”; i.e. can I shoot them in my SR9, or can I only shoot 9mm ammo that’s labeled 9mm Parabellum/Luger/NATO/High-velocity??
Thansk in advance for your help!

Thanks … your response/ quote referenced appears to be in regard to the construction of the SR9c, so I can only guess that you are trying to imply that because the SR9c has a “glass filled nylon frame” that it is not suitable to fire “+P” or”+P+” ammunition ?? If that’s the case, then I have to assume that the answer to my question is:

Thanks again for helping make that crystal clear for me!
High velocity is a relative term...you can check out ballistics online, to see what the experts consider "high velocity" The reason that I mentioned the frame material, is that, if I were the owner, I don't think I would make a habit out of shooting +p rounds out of that particular firearm.....the site I mentioned shows that others apparently are not too concerned about shooting +p ammo out of this firearm. Me, concerned.
Unless you are just wanting to shoot those + rounds, there really is no need to use them for self defense as there are excellent choices available....They are harder on any pistol and increase wear......JJ
