    My Colt 1911 carries a Glaser Bluetip up the pipe, 5 more in the ten-round mag followed by five Federal Hydrashocks. But it's a backup for the 12 gauge pump. To paraphrase Mr. T, "I pity the fool who breaks in when I'm there!"

    CorBon 110gr .357 mag JHP's. Fast like most CorBon's.

    Good old Hydrashocks, lately I have been strongly favoring the .40 sw, but am happy with the .45 too.

    Triton Quik Shok first...if I can find them, Federal Nyclad next. I'll settle for Federal Hydra Shoks. If a particular sidearm does'nt feed hollowpoints reliably, like my PPK/S, I'll use Glaser Safety Slugs
