    Like some Gold Dots? I can still get 50 for ~25$

    Also is Silver Bear 9mm decent?

    I'd buy both practice and defense rounds. But if I had to choose one or the other, defense.

    Metals prices and fuel prices are falling like rocks, I think its a bad time to stock up on ammo

    (although buy into tin foil futures)

    I always figured if I needed to end up using them 30 should be enough. But until now I never thought that I may not have the chance to ever buy them again.

    I think it'll be awhile until 9mm is banned. Unless Obama signs an executive order banning all military ammo. :mamoru::mamoru:

    I don't see any Rangers on A2G's website either. I just bought some from them a month or two ago.
    Weird.

    Yes, but for the same price you can get much better ammo. Like HST's or Gold Dots.

    He said he wants to ban all ammo that can go through a level 1 vest which would ban all ammo above 22lr and 38acp :wtc:

    Double Tap is up in the air, some really like it. I wouldn't get Hornady TAP, I just wouldn't.
    I mean you can if you want, but I doubt you'll end up keeping it around.
    For 9mm I found the best for my guns (M&P 9c for carry) the best have been Ranger-T, HST and Gold Dots.
    Gold Dots don't seem to feed reliably in my M&P, so I don't carry them. So right now I'm teetering between the Rangers and the HST's... but the jury is still out so far.

    Our fearless leader really likes Double Tap for 10mm.
    38 spl... probably Rangers or HST's again as well.

    Just my .02. But don't make your decision on what works in other people's guns.

    the guy is pretty cool. i ordered at 10am one day and it was shipped out the same day, received it 3 days later. but he's on order for all t series right now. he said early spring at the earliest. :(
    i tend to favor the lighter grain in 9mm in a +p or a +p+.. heavier grains are slower. i saw on the internet not too long ago a guy doing a test with a 2x4 witha pair of jeans over it. shot all diff grains and loads out of a glock 19, corbon 115gr +p had the best results./
