Glock 37/38 carry ammo

Picked up a G37 today on trade with some ammo/extra mags. I had thought about the 45 gap before but never got a deal on one, I reload 45acp so its not a big switch. I will probably sell the 37 and get a 38 for EDC though. For you hardcore 45 gap guys what ammo do you carry everyday?

I carried the 37 all day Christmas shopping and like the feel, I need to get a holster for them but its a good compromise between a G21 and a 1911. Now I need to sell my G21 mags/holster and ammo I have left over.

I like just about anything in 200 grains. 185 is my next preference. I load a bunch myself and won't hesitate with that as well, Montana Gold's baby.

I carry two rounds, I have a case of Speer 200 grn Gold Dot hollow point and a winchester bullet that is basically a truncated cone/flat point.

I would keep the G 37 and buy a G 38. You will eventually want a G 39 as well. Many of us have all 3. Stop by the Bull Dawgs club for reloading tips and other sources of ammo and pistols.

Welcome to the addiction.

Thanks guys. An added bonus my safari land for my G21 fits it perfect. Saves me from buying a belt holster.

So far I've only carried the Underwood 45 GAP 230
Grain Bonded Jacketed Hollow Point in my G37 and
trust it to do what I need it to do. It's only 900fps,
but with it being 230 grain bonded HP it should work
just fine, but it is $34.75 for 50 rounds.

200 gr. Speer Gold Dot is what I've consistently fed my G37 and G39 as a carry round. I've put six mags through each gun to test function. Not even a stutter in feeding. Speer makes a 200gr Lawman round for practice, which feels identical during firing. The G39 is pretty much my preferred GAP gun, and I was impressed by the fact that the gun is the size of a G26, and that all seven in-gun rounds put out as much muzzle energy as a 9mm +P, but with a 45-caliber, 200gr. bullet! There's no downside here other than magazine capacity, and that can be augmented in the G39 with a G38 magazine. I'd not hesitate to use Federal's HST round, either, but I latched onto a supply of Speer's ammo, and I like the commonality between the 200gr.GDHP and FMJ rounds.
