Thanks for the article. You always seem to have somethin good to read. I had this discussion the other day with a few other Instructors. We were talking about how many "+P" calibers/cartridges there are, and how there are only 6, (I think) That are officially recognized by SAAMI as "Official +P" ammo. One would think with as much yappin has been done about 9, 380, and the like, that people would be much more adamant about having a regulation for some modicum of safety when hot rodding rounds that are so commonly done.

Thanks for the kind words, son. I have always steered clear of the +P+ ammos, having an opinion like the last commenter in the article. If you needa stretch the cartridge that far, you're probably not using the best caliber for your purpose. I have carried and shot .45 ACP +P ammo in my 1911s and S&W 625, and Speer Gold Dot 135gr +P HP for short barrels outta my 642-1 and 2 1/2" 686 for SD/HD purposes. I feel the use of +P in those instances poses no risk and some benefit.....
