Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

T'storm went thru last night lowering the humidity and temp.

'Tis 64 and overcast. "Showers early, then partly cloudy for the afternoon. High 78F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 40%."

Do you know if they make them for .38 spl.?
For .38 Special, I use these, they're a much better round for the .38 Special...

Kid, Now you have to find some Winchester Silver tips .32 ammo for it. That's the only decent self defence ammo made for the .32 autos.

I'll look around. See if they feed right.  Cabela's has some critical defense in, and are going to get in some Gold Dots. I'll try it all, I guess.

Today is nice and sunny.  Hopefully go out and burn some 9mm later on, but we'll see.

I have them and for .357 and I believe I have some in .40 cal as well - bought at different places.

Slim, you want to be very careful using handloaded ammo for self defense, If you get the wrong DA he'll claim that over the counter ammo wasn't deadly enough so you loaded up your own killer ammo. Bet thing is to find out what your local Police use and use the same...Unless they use ball ammo like in NJ.

I carry Critical defense in my Ruger SR9c, Federal 115 gr JHP+P+ in my Browning HiPower, Federal Hydrashok 230 JHP +P in my Colt 1911 Government model and 357 Magnum 130 Grain JHP Hydra-Shok Federal Premium Personal Defense Low Recoil for my S&W Model 28-2 and 38 Special 129 Grain +P Hydra-Shok JHP Federal Vital-Shot in my S&W J frames. These are the best performing ammo in my pistols as tested, They are accurate enough for me to take a head shot at 25 yards and a center mass shot at 50 yards. Your guns may like a different brand/type of ammo, I always recommend trying out as many different brands as your budget will allow.

My .38s all shot the Winchester 110 grn JHPs very well. My bigger guns get Hydrashocks, Unfortunately I have seen in person what the 180 Grain .40s due to the inside of a human body. 'nuff said.
Well, the Missus and 2 of our nieces just loaded up a 6 kids for fireworks. Uncle Kevin is gonna grab an iced tea and listen to a ballgame.

Both of mine are S&W J frames...The Mod 36 is a no dash hence the Critical Defense.
The other is a Mod 60-14 , I choose Critical Defense over .357 for comfort and better recoil control.

I have reloaded some wadcutters with Reddot only for practice, the factory Critical Defense is for carry for same reason the good Major mentioned.
