    I would call it a safe queen and put it up and forget that I had it.

    Which round would work best? The one that functions 100% over a couple of hundred cycles.

    One of only five guns that was produced in 9mm. I would not shoot anything out of it.

    Thats what I get for reading the companies web site.;) Car Knocker is right. Your gun may not shoot the same brand as well as one of the other A232. You are actually the only one that can answer your question young grasshopper.

    Well, you are probably right, only I can figure it out, I was just looking for a good round....Guess this 60 yr old Southern boy has never been called a grasshopper before, don't know if that is good or bad, but I did hear that expression= outlaw josey wales...must be ok...and may I add that the other 9mm's that randall made had round top slide and fixed sight. You know we are not here to put down other peoples preferences, I think we are here to help one another.....

    I shoot a lot of Winchester NATO fmj out of my Colt 9mm. I have also used a lot of S&B and Winchester Ranger 115+P+ 127+P+ and the 147gr bullets. I have never had any issues with any of the above.

    The term was also used extensively on the old David Carradine TV series "Kung Fu" by Keye Luke when addressing his apprentice monk, Kwai Chang Caine.

    To expand on my earlier answer: Auto pistols can be pretty touchy on ammunition issues. What one will digest without a hiccup may be absolutely unreliable in a seemingly identical pistol. If you are going to use this pistol for self-defense, it's only prudent to ensure that your chosen ammunition functions perfectly in your pistol. You'll have peace of mind on that issue, at least.

    Just as a general rule - -

    Pistols chambered for old-design cartridges usually tend to work best with bullets most closely duplicating the profile of the standard full metal jacket factory cartridge. Many will work fine with more radical designs, but this is a good rule of thumb.

    If I was starting out to simply find a dead-reliable load for a Commander-size 1911 design, I'd begin with the Speer Gold Dot 124 gr hp, the old Remington 115 jhp, and the Remington Golden Sabre. Once I found something that worked reliably for at least 100 rounds without a bobble, I might expand my search to bullets of a somewhat different design.

    There is absolutely no "Magic Bullet" that'll make a 9x19mm pistol into a semi-auto .454. Whatever the final choice, you end up with the same formula as for any other cartridge: Good sight picture, steady hold, and a careful trigger press. Placement is everything. ;)

    Best
    Johnny
