    I'm trying to decide on a good carry/defense round for the LC9, specifically 124 gr vs. 147 gr. Also, any good brand recommendations that you've had good experience with?

    Thanks!

    Hornady critical defense. Cycles great, and from my study its a great defensive round.
    Why is there air?

    It's what my LC9 likes.

    Any thoughts on the 124 vs 147 gr. question? I'm not really a 9mm guy, but on the surface a 147 gr. bullet seems to be pushing the limits of the cartridge to me.

    I prefer the 124...a little less recoil makes for better accuracy wrt shot placement on subsequent shots. -Z-

    I use Winchester 9mm Luger 115 gr JHP. Not fancy, but the gun shoots them well and have not had any problems shooting them.

    I'm rocking 135gr Federal Hydrashoks in my LC9 and SR9c. It's a happy medium between the 124gr and 147gr rounds.

    +1 on the Federal HST...also, the Speer Gold Dots are an excellent choice! Carry either in my Glock 26, regular or +P. Yogi

    Cor-Bon, 140 Grain Solid Copper Hollow Point are my favored CC ammo... I like the penetration and the energy this round has.
