He’s a law-enforcement officer and he writes this of his “stuff”:
Glock 42. Ameriglo Hackathorn sights. Taran Tactical +1 Base Pads. Bladetech Klipt and Signature carriers. Loaded with Hornady Critical Defense. Benchmade 580 Custom Barrage. Magpul Daka Essentials wallet. H&K style key chain. Streamlight Protac 2L. Cheap sunglasses and a decent blue pen. Cheers.
So another Taran Tactical user. Shooting Hornady Critical Defense .380 JHP out of his single-stack Glock 42 – with night sights. Interesting choices. Kudos for carrying an extra magazine, a light and a nice blade, even if it’s a Benchmade. And, obviously, a gun.
I know Hornady makes basically two types of .380 hollowpoints: The Critical Defense with the plastic plug to keep the HP cavity from clogging, and the XTP. Didn’t the XTP get better, more consistent penetration and the Critical Defense rounds sometimes fall short of 12″ of penetration? Thoughts on the best .380 carry rounds? Put them in comments, please. I’m carrying the XTPs in my backup gun. If there’s something better, I want it!
Clearly, no beard comb from Mr. Garcia. Is he slacking or just beardless?
