Do any of you carry a 9mm? Either as Primary or Back up?

If so, what it your "go to" ammo if the SHTF?

Go to for my 357sig duty and 9mm off duty is Hornady Critical Duty. If in anything shorter than a 4 inch barrel, use Hornady Critical Defense.

Although they look the same, they are designed differently and work best in the designated barrel lengths

How about the latest craze of lightweight solid cooper bullets with the spiral (Phillips Screwdriver) looking points?

Many shooters have gone to a "summer" load and a "winter" load.

Why? We donít change our ammo based on seasons, find one that works well in all conditions, like the one mentioned above

Not a LEO so I won't try to contribute. But summer winter load are you talking about a smaller firearm during the summer for ease of concealment and a larger firearm during the winter because of the thicker clothes? I've heard of people doing this or am I missing something?

Exactly it, I guess the Critical Duty might serve for both seasons

You know us gun people, always looking for an edge or something new

Don't overthink it Buzz and don't chase the latest trends with such an important decision. BP has a good suggestion and I recall BIL uses Gold Dot. Go with what LEO/FBI uses.

Not an LEO but Winter clothing, heavy coats etc. can fill a hollow point and cause it to behave like a FMJ and not expand.

He77 BIG FITZ, you know me, I overthink EVERYTHING

I still don't know what I'm shooting in two weeks, got no ammo ready. My BDC turret is not working correctly, maybe I can shoot Chad's Winny .22 for the whole thing
