    I suppose that it's good that such a person, as an initial step, has gone so far as to actually acquire a firearm at all, but to be so naive as to then apparently imagine that it will somehow "protect her", absent any experience, practice, maintenance or study on her part, seems hard to believe.

    If you're okay with a smaller company loading I've had excellent luck with Precision One's XTP loadings. I've shot about 500 rounds of both the +P version and the standard pressure stuff in .380 ACP, (250 rounds of each in +P and std pressure). It shoots clean, accurate and reliable as far as I've experienced. I've run about 75 rounds through an LCP, (standard pressure) the other 425 were through a G42. It can be bought in bulk, and is good alternative if you can't find factory Hornady loaded stuff. Fiocchi extrema used to also be available with an XTP projectile in 50 round boxes. Not sure if they're still made though.

    My local had a box of XTP in stock.

    She's interested in getting more into shooting and so on.

    I'm not a big fan of Buffalo Bore but this looks like the Xtreme Penetrator bullet without the fluting.

    If this runs in Glock20, it could be a perfect load

    I am convinced that the G20 with heavy 10mm loads needs an extra power mag spring and mag shims for reliable function. Bullet shape is not the main factor.

    I am adding a metal Zev mag release as well.
