Just curious of how many use it ?
weather its Dept issue gun or just your personal gun.

outta the oven!
Since there is no such thing as +p .380 I marked no
I plan to get a 9mm from the same series (Kahr) and will stick with regular 9mm defensive ammo too.
I see no reason for it. If you want a .357mag, buy one.
Eeewwww, don't touch it!
Here, poke at it with this stick.
|Fighting the good fight|
Our duty ammo is 124 grain +P 9mm Federal HST. That's also what I use in my off duty 9mms.
I also used +P .38 Special ammo back when I briefly carried a J-frame off duty.
But I do not use +P .45 ACP ammo. Ballistic testing has shown that it is of minimal benefit in that caliber.
|Still finding my way|
9mm +P in my carry guns (M&P 2.0)
I also have no problem using standard pressure 124g HST ammo as they have proven as effective as the +P Gold Dots.
|Go ahead punk, make my day|
For 9MM, yes in the form of 124gr +P or 147gr +P Federal HST ammo.
no +P in any of mine...
Speer Gold Dots in 9mm or 38spcl

I chose some yes, and some no.
For example, I carry Speer 125 grain Gold Dot regular pressure in my 938. It's a small, short barrel pocket pistol for immediate personal defense, and I don't think it would be wise to use +p in it regularly, nor do I think +p would be much more effective than the regular stuff in a pocket pistol.
I do use Federal HST 147 grain +p in my 228 and 2022 for carry ammo.
My 229 .40 uses regular HST as there is no recognized SAAMI +p spec for .40, even though company's such as Buffalo Bore make and market it.

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

+P+ in my P7 since I picked up some for cheap.

At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
I carry and shoot Underwood 9mm 147 (gold dot) +P+ rated at 1175 FPS in my VP9. Chrono shows an average of 1179 fps in my barrel.
Why? Because I haven't obtained a VP40 and 357sig barrel yet.
Surprisingly it is the most accurate of hollowpoints I've tested and recoil is softer than the Win. Ranger T 127 +P+ I've tested.
If I want more power in a primary carry handgun, I go to a larger caliber. I do carry CorBon +P 9mm in my pocket carried Sig P938 second gun because I only trust 9mm for bad-breath fighting distances.

|Just for the|
hell of it
Mostly carry 9mm and I use Speer Gold Dot 124 +P.
I would be fine carrying regular pressure in the same ammo but when I was buying it I could only find the +P in 50 round packs which were cheaper than the 20 round, per round.

Only +P load in my EDC guns is in my Ruger SP101 snub. Otherwise, standard pressure in everything else. My woods gun uses Underwood +P but I I dont run a lot of that through it.
End of Earth: 2 Miles
Upper Peninsula: 4 Miles
+P in the 9mm & +P 38Sp the not-carried S&W M36
Not aware of any 357Sig +P
The Enemy's gate is down.
I voted sometimes because I have, but lately Ive been rocking standard Speer 9mm 115g GDs in all my guns, they do really well even out of shorter barrels.

|I have not yet begun |
Sometimes +P but not always. Depends on where I'm going and what I'm doing there.
Never felt undergunned not having it though.
After the game, the King and the pawn go into the same box.
In my J frame Airlite, I prefer the Hornady CD non +P 38, 110 FTX. It has both good velocity & expansion. In my steel framed snubs, I like both the Speer 135+P GDHP & the Federal 135 +P HST. The later is formulated specifically for 2” barrel guns & achieves superb results.

In 9mm, if I'm running 124gr, I run 124 +P HST or Gold Dots; if I'm running 147, it's standard pressure.
Federal 115gr +P+ BPLE in my P6.

My carry gun is Colt LW Commander in .38 Super. All ammunition I've seen is labeled +P to differentiate from the old and weaker .38 ACP.
