Thank you ... I never fired in 32 yrs ( God willing ) tho it came very close a couple times.....
In all honesty , don't ever remember ever thinking about backstops in those times... just if I shoot or not.
I still dream of those times now and then ... what if's

Those are nightmares, thank God you never needed to.

I would only comment on this from my LE training.

The more complicated the maneuver, the more you have to rehearse it under stress.  And the more likely you won't do it right when you need to.

You make a good point. I need to run some dry fire drills in the house in the dark and figure out my best options.

The 10mm Auto, created by Zeus, replaced Thor's hammer, perfected by Jeff Cooper, and endorsed by Larry Vickers AND the Nuge! It exudes awesome! :D

 :o my indecisive ass just went back to Underwood. There is less chance of a pass through the faster you push a bullet.

I have boxes of Underwood as well. 155 grain is my favorite, but I have some 200 grain hard cast for when penetration matters. I never had to "shoot" when I was a cop, but did my share of 'pointing and yelling.' You know the drill. So don't hate me, but I like the PMC 170 grain HP at 1200 FPS, even for carry. It let's me practice without breaking the bank with ammo I feel would be perfectly effective in self defense situations. And it's pretty tame feeling with my plastic EAA compact.

I like Critical Duty too. $35 for 50 rounds in the LE box. They do 1080 from my Glock 29. The 4.5" barrel 40 S&W Glock 22 comes in at 980 I believe it was. Talk about some easy shooting 10mm's.

I recently started carrying a Glock 20SF with TruGlo TFX sights on duty. Right now I am carrying my trusted DT 165gr BJHP that I have shot for years. It works flawlessly through the 20SF. I just got in 10 boxes of Underwood 165gr BJHP and plan to test them extensively then switch to them as Underwood is cheaper plus they give me a LEO discount. I have a few more 10mm that are known performers still on hand just in case.

180 V Crowns are my 10MM carry load as well. I used one on a rattler in South Dakota that was to close for comfort while prairie dog hunting. It literally vaporized the snakes head I felt splatter from it hit me.

I stopped carrying the V Crown because I can't find a single test where the bullet opens after hitting denim.

Always been a good round... not to hot for a 2 or 3rd shot, good performing bullet

Where are you finding the 50 round boxes? I've only seen the 20 round boxes at much higher prices. Hornady added that round to their LE website, so I figured their might be 50 round boxes somewhere.

Overkill do you think you would like the Underwood 180 DE load with the Nosler bullet 1240 fps.   I was lucky to stock up on the Gold Dot version of that load.
