Favorite Defensive Handgun Loads

During training classes or while conversing with shooters, I'm often asked about my favorite defensive handgun loads.

SIG Sauer 1911 Tactical Operations

When it comes to handguns, SIG Sauer may be best known for its double-action P-series pistols, but the company has also been building 1911 pistols for some years.

Charter Arms Crimson Patriot

The Patriot family includes three variations, all built on Charter's well-known Bulldog frame. Common across the line is a six-round cylinder, with the biggest differences between the guns being barrel length and sights.

.22 LR for Self-Defense?

More bad guys are stopped by .22 Long Rifle ammo every year than any other chambering, but is it a good choice for personal protection?

.45 ACP Handloaded 185-grain Barnes TAC XP

This 180-grain Barnes TAC XP bullet was handloaded in a .45 ACP case ahead of 8.2 grains of Ramshot True Blue powder and a CCI 300 primer.

9 mm +P Cor-Bon 115-grain DPX
