    Which brand, load, and caliber do you use in your Bersa for Every Day Carry...!?

    I own a Glock 30SF and when I carry it concealed for self protection I use the Hornady Critical Defense 185 grain FTX...in .45 ACP of course. :D

    9mm Luger Plus P 115gr CORBON Self-Defense JHP.
    Higher velocity round, which is a must for the sub compacts.

    It depends on the gun I'm carrying. I've been using Hornady Critical Duty in my XDm .40. I use the short barrel Speer Gold Dot in one .45 and the regular Gold Dot in another.

    I rotate my EDC's out depending on where I'll be, town, woods, car, so here's a few of my choices.

    Hornady Critical Defense in my 9mm. (See my sig for an article on setback (or lack of it) with this ammo.)

    Federal Hydra-Shok in my 45ACP. (Plan to do a setback test on this too.)

    I believe Hornady Critical Defense ammunition states their bullets are

    cannelured and crimped to avoid (minimize) setback. One of the reasons I carry HCD

    and rotate my carry ammo frequently.

    Not that i can carry up here (it's funny, i have permits for a few states, but in my home country i can't carry )

    but really, any of the modern premium brand hollowpoints would make me feel warm and fuzzy. But if you gave me a handfull of lead semiwadcutters loaded up good and warm, i wouldn't worry about it other then to pay good attention to whatever was behind what i was shooting at. It's 85% where you put it, 15% what you put there. a 32 in the brain beats a 44 mag in the big toe :D
