    I had a few questions that have bothering me lately.
    1.Can beretta 92fs handle +P+ ?
    2.Can the Sig pro 2022 handle the +P+ ?
    3.Are the two tone hk uspc going to keep coming out?
    4.Are there bi-tone springfield xd .45 a.c.p. coming out?
    5.Can carrying my hk usp cocked and locked in single action with the safety on get me in to trouble ?
    6.Can you get glocks in a bi tone and not that s&w sigma junk?
    7.Whats your hunting/fishing sidearm?
    8.Riding a motorcycle/quad what is a good holster?
    Thank you if you can answer any of these questions.

    #1 & #2 No, you're stretching the safety limits. Best for robust revolvers...Not sure why you'd want to? Might as well move up to a .40 SW....

    I already have a bunch of .40's and don't care for the round too much. The 9mm is more available cheaper and with the right ammo can do just as well.

    Cocked locked and ready to rock is safe in the hands (and holsters) of an extra careful carrier in my opinion. I think carrying any gun whether it be a Beretta 92fs or USP cocked and locked with the safety on brings just that much more responsability. Paying close attention to the handling of your weapon while holstering and drawing is important. You have to discipline yourself to handle your weapon like a LEO. If you take it out, you'd better be prepared to use it.
    As far as it being safe, tons of people do it every day, I think it's safe. Provided you're prepared.

    Stay alert.

    #8 - If you're riding in the dirt and mud, a Fobus holster is hard to beat - I like the paddle model - with a 9mm Glock in it !

    #6 - Glocks don't come with a silver slide but I've read where people have had the slides redone in hardchrome for the silver and black look. They've got the tennifer treated slides so no worry with corrosion.

    Beg to differ

    Why not?? These are military/ duty grade weapons. If they won't handle +P ammo, what will?

    +P maybe, but I thought +P+ was reserved mostly for submachine guns.

    Thanks MT, I feel that some shooters are looking for the extra edge but in reality are facing "the law of diminishing returns" in pistol wear & failure. What does the Beretta & Sig manual say?:eek:
    The frequent caveatwith +P+ deals with excessive chamber pressure, hence decreasing the major components service life expectancy. However, I would concede that using it as PDA in a carry pistol would do no harm.

    Remember that +P+ isn't a set pressure level. +P stands for pressures about 10% over "normal" SAAMI specs. +P+ is in excess of those- AFAIK, SAAMI doesn't endorse a +P+ spec. While 11% over spec would be +P+, so would a round set for 200% over spec, and sure to blow the gun (and your hand) to pieces.

    I would be VERY surprised for a manufacturer to claim that they'll handle +P+, since it could literally be anything up to and including truly dangerous loads.

    Regarding specific models, the manufacturer's websites are usually the place to find out the info you need- for example, Springfield Armory has a number of photos of the XD45ACP in bi-tone on their site.
