9mm Short-Barrel Choice: Wed Carry 124-Grain Speer Gold Dots
Compact-pistol carriers should take heart. Out of a 3-inch barrel, these loads performed well. Yes, their velocities were trimmed somewhat, but they still penetrated and expanded satisfactorily.
Among the most-popular concealed-carry handguns is the 9mm compact pistol. From the immensely popular mini Glocks to the Sig P290, there are quite a few pistols of this type in service. That’s not hard to understand why: in the same frame size, the 9mm is more powerful than the 380 ACP, and when compared to a similarly sized wheelgun, most 9mms offer more shots than a 38 Special. But many carriers who like the portability of a small 9mm pistol with a lot of shots worry how the 9mm compact’s terminal ballistics compare to the same rounds shot out of a full-size gun.
