    I wouldn't expect them to go the 50,000+ trouble-free rounds some people claim from Glocks and Berettas if you're only using +P+, but enough to verify reliability for CCW and some occasional fun at the range should never be a problem.

    It will be fine, but with any handgun i wouldn't shoot +p+'s alot but there are many people that would be a ble to afford it. i would say put some rds through it to check function and accuracy and shootability and see if that is the right load. just don't use it all the time.

    Any Glock or Ruger should handle any commercial 9mm ammo from now till doomsday.

    Well, thats sort of true. I have fired a lot of Winchester Ranger +p+ 127g JHPs out of a Glock 34. These rounds clock out at about 1275 fps, which is surely pushing the limits of 9mm.

    The only functional issue is that the plastic recoil spring guide rod in the G34 seems to break after several hundred rounds. The interesting thing is that the Glock keeps on working just fine. I have done this a couple of times now, and never notice the problem til I take the gun apart to clean it. Its a cheap fix, only about 4 or 5 bucks for a new spring and rod.

    That's why I like to install a stainless rod with Wolff springs right out of the box...
