    New question: Can the G48 take +P ammo? I don't want to shoot +P but my initial hand loads, using the Alliant recipe of 6.4 grains power pistol with a 124 grain HP seem very on the +P side of things. Curious if they are safe to shoot.

    I've loaded down to 5.6 grains of Power Pistol for my next batch, hopefully not so stiff.

    Already got the G48 and it's perfect. Looking at the P365XL, yes, that would have done it. Light and thin, basically same as the G48. Only deficiency is the 3.7" barrel relative to the G48 4.2" barrel. Small difference. But alas that ship has saled. Shot the G48 today, it will do.

    No problems with it periodically.

    If it’s going to be a steady diet of +p I would order a 19# loaded recoil spring guide to replace the stock one. That should keep the slide from battering the weapon to death constant +p loads.

    Awesome! Just don't want to pull these 50 rounds if I can shoot them. I've backed the load off for the next batch.

    From the Glock FAQ page:

    What kind of ammunition should I use in my GLOCK pistol? Can I use +P and +P+ ammunition?

    We recommend using ammunition that is manufactured and meets SAAMI or other industry standards, and while some +P ammunition meets these guidelines, +P+ usually does not. This ammunition may generate a higher pressure than standard ammunition, which could shorten the life of the parts of your firearm.

    It is +P rated.

    I've come to suspenders too. Light guns and suspenders.

    I also use suspenders when I carry a heavy gun, much more comfortable for all day carry.

    Here's another vote for Sig's P225A1...Mine came from Cabelas with five (5) magazines in virtually new condition a cpl years ago. Less than $700 for the lot...I've found it to be the best 'feeling' Sig in my hand...almost as good as a Browning Hi Power for me...and that's high praise indeed. Best regards, Rod
