Hollowpoints wound by making deep wide holes that bleed

They are built to expand to maximize the size of the hole

Not to "transfer energy" or for an "energy dump"

Handguns are pitiful popguns and not all that lethal

be happy when they work....but don't count on it....plan on lots of accurate shots

Armed Hippie is exactly right (reading is fundamental)

DB does a modification that shortens the grip so that the larger pistol will take the smaller mags

He also does a G19 that WILL take G26 mags

The grip is the part that is hard to conceal in the first place

For fat grip issues check out Bowie Tactical...they do a great reduction They also do other grip mods Like your G17 can take G19 mags (and still take g17 mags of course) G21 takes G30 mags...you get the idea That way you get the grip length of the smaller gun but the sight radius of the larger weapon

I have LOTS of weapons...but always need MORE


Another vote for 5.56x45, 5.45x39 or 7.62 x 39

With ammo prices what they are I might lean towards the 5.45 or 7.62

Fodder for them is still (almost) affordable

The best Glocks are the 9mm's They run forever with minimal maint. and they are cheap to practice with The other calibers are good guns but they tend to be more problematic With rising ammo prices the 9mm never made more sense That being said I like my new M&P9 more than my G17 Only time will tell i...
