Hey Hap, I did a little looking around on those underwood defense round and they appear to be great when you want to go thru a hard substance like a car door, windshield, plywood. they tend to maintain their shape when they hit things like bone or glass and don't deviate as much as HP after penetrating a hard object. On gel test they seam to be more stable than a HP with a deeper penetration. Overall, I think I'll wait until the FBI, ATF, LEO start using them vs HP. I wonder why we don't see more information of that type of bullet in hunting articles. They sure look like they could cause a lot of damage and aid in stopping a threat.

I also use the Hornady Critical Defense in 9mm, 38 Special +P and 380 ACP, and like others have recommended, I practice with it occasionally.

I carry Hornady Critical Defense also. Does anyone know of any Police Depts using Hornady? I'm thinking of how I would explain to a judge why I carry it. I have a friend that carries the same brand that NYPD carries just for that reason.

I was looking for specific Police Departments, but this gave me some important info about my pistol and this ammo. I will probably switch now.

Thank you 563jack.

Yeah, thinking same thing.  That said, this could be the ticket for my LCP 380 :-)

Liberty Civil Defense 380 auto makes me feel better having my wife carrying a glock 42, thanks to Chris. Nice pistol by the way. I need to switch up my 9mm ammo for Christmas. My carry ammo is a few years old and I think I will shoot it at the range and replace with Liberty.
