75rds. fired. Feeds cleanly each time and shoots striking target in consistent groups. Feed test done with 3rds. with trigger pulled rapid fire = wide groups. Slow fire (2 sec.) from rest @ 10yds. 4-5" groups. I know probably a lot better marksmen out there, but I am personally quite happy with how the Hornady shoots. CorBon did not work as well nor the Winchester self defense in the black box.

The critical duty is a hotter load used for LEO. This round is designed to pass through different types of barriers such as glass. This round is also designed for use in full size pistols.

The critical defense is designed for personal protection and home defense. This specific round is designed for all size handguns and range in a variety of different calibers. It seems to me to be a more suitable round fore home protection, especially if u have little ones in other rooms. Where the critical duty is designed to pass through barries such as walls, an innocent bystander or child could be hit. This is my opinion since I have 3 lil ones in da house.

All the test I have seen show the C Duty opening up in everything, regardless of barriers. I consider that a good thing, especially if your rural and you EDC doubles as a woods gun against bigger critters. I would also throw PDX1 124+P into the mix.

Based on my recent experiences with my 938, if you need to defend yourself with it I would probably suggest throwing it at the person, and running like hell in the opposite direction.

I use the PDX1 +P for carrying. Don't know how it works to shoot anybody, but it does feed fine and fires and cycles well. Fairly available here too

P938

I have the Scorpion, have 6-700 rounds through it, from junk to gold dots, etc. it shoots anything, smooth as butter, I carry Hornadays as my daily ammo.


Love that little gun. On your six makes a great, very small holster for it, FYI.
