    Hi all,
    I am wondering what the preferred sd ammo is for you lcp owners? I tried Fiocchi 90 gr jhp and my lcp has a problem with them. They are just a tad too long to fit the mag. When you load the mag they jam in at the 3rd round in and wont move. I tried them in 2 mags with same result. I compared with wwb ammo and standing side by side the Fiocchi is about 1/16" taller.

    I've used Hornady 90 gr JHP/XTP without difficulty. That is what I EDC.

    I bought a few hundred rounds from Georgia Arms which comes highly recommended. Still waiting for the LCP, but have the ammo, holster and extra magazines. Still 4th on the waiting list. No progress at all that I can see.

    I carry Winchester Silver Tip. They have been shooting really well at the range and I have had a couple of long-time carry guys recommend the load.

    Speer or Double Tap with the Speer 90 gr gold dot HP. The Double Tap isn't marked +P but feels like it.

    I traditionally carry Speer GDHP's in all of my pistols for SD. However, in my LCP I actually carry Powerballs. I think the added penetration that the polymer ball (is supposed) to facilitate helps with the smaller round. They shoot fine in it too.
