Salam to all, especially to Glock Fanatics out there.
I have read about Glock KB's among this type of caliber.
I Would like to ask for your suggestions for a Carry-ammo for my Glock .40 s&w.
:)

I think 9mm is more then enough for us esp for ccw.
If you just want to try it, i think
It will be unique one in your collection...
But not recommended

Bro this is not US. That's one of their preferred self defence ammo. For us 9mm does the job and we have the performance of target killers to prove that it works.

Gentlemen, AR_JUL is from Philippines. He's asking about ammo options for SD in .40 S&W. As Dr Zakir has said, here only S&B is available, and we are thankful for that :) But off course if someone from another country who has a .40 can advise us better.

.40 S&W is the best bore for self defence and offence developed around 1993 by Smith & Wesson and Winchester on the request of FBI. Only .357 mag and .45 ACP stand at par with it. But many believe .40S&W is still better than those two if viewed in totality. It is currently used by all top security agencies in the world. Unfortunately in Pakistan we are still living in 9mm & 30 bore era!

In Pakistan it is very difficult to find anything except S&B for this bore, but you have hollow points available in variety of makes. All top bullet manufacturers have all varieties available such as hydra shock by Federal, Critical defence and critical duty by Hornady and XTP in +P and ++P by Hornady are among the most trustable and reliable ammo. Serbian JHP are also available.

.40 S&W is better than 9mm but unfortunately ammo is not available in Pakistan.. if the ammo is rarely available then its very much expensive..

@Saad Moin.. 9mm and 30 bore era?????? there is noting to do with era i suppose.... 9mm is still the choice of most of the armies around the world.. and plz do a research.... you will find that 7.62*25 is even more powerful than .357 magnum.. in both velocity and muzzle energy...

Is .45 ACP ammo easily available? I have Glock 41 Gen 4, so wondering if this caliber is available easily in Pak.
