I just bought a Springfield XD-9 service model. This will be my CCW gun and I need some suggestions of what I should keep in my mag when I carry. Right now I only have some target ammo for practicing.

Federal Hydra-shok's and CCI Gold Dots are always winners.

If you use Speer Gold Dots, you could pick up some bulk Gold Dots to practice with at ammoman.com

Umm......why would I have to admit that?

When did cor-bon start making ammo that was more fun to shoot than other companies?

Why do you alternate carry ammo? Weather/clothing issues, or just to be cool?

124 gr hydra shok - standard pressure. Seems a good balance. I've heard good things about the newer bullet designs for the 147 gr stuff too.

I only shoot cop killer bullets. Like the kind in Lethal Weapon 3. You know, they'll go through dozer blades.

Serious.

Cor-bons!!!!!!

The ammo I carry depends on the gun that is in the holster. Not so much clothing etc. I carry several different pistols, and my 9mm seems to prefer Cor-bon. This, of course does not mean that his will be the same. Everyone needs to go out and spend some time finding out what works in the gun that they have. I was just really suprised that Cor-bon wasn't posted right out of the gate. Maybe it is just my part of the country or whatever... But Cor-bon's seem to have a big following around here....
