Hi from Myrtle beach

Hi,

I'm new to this. Just bought my first gun which is the shield performance center in 9mm. Going to be taking my cwp next month. Looking for a good holster and what is the best cheap ammo to get.

Thanks

Bret

Generally speaking this is exactly the kind of ammo to avoid, these are reloaded cartridges of dubious quality, one of my rules of thumb...if they aren't even boxing their ammo, just putting it in plastic bags, run away. This is very much like the dubious 'gun show ammo' that is often pretty bad ammo.

Note: I'm not automatically saying reloaded ammo is bad, I've been a reloader for over 50 years now, but the point is that experienced reloaders like myself have a policy, never shoot ammo reloaded by someone else.

The best advice is right on that page:
CAUTION -- This product is considered “remanufactured” ammunition. Compared to factory new ammunition, remanufactured ammunition can have more instances of high pressure, case-head ruptures, squib loads, failures to fire, failures to eject, and other functional issues which, in turn, can lead to damage to your firearm and potentially severe injury or death to yourself or others nearby. The use of remanufactured ammunition may also void the warranty on your firearm, therefore review your firearm’s owner’s manual or contact the firearm manufacturer with any questions. Do not supply this ammunition to third-parties unless you first inform them that it is remanufactured ammunition.

Welcome to the forum!

John, that's a heck of a disclaimer! I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me that it's a heck of an admission of fault if anyone gets hurt. Basically it says, "Sue me".

Yup, never give out your handloads and don't shoot anyone elses.

All good points that I won't argue with. So do you have a recommendation for the OP for good, cheap practice ammo?

When on sale, Brazer Brass is often just a few cents more per round than that reload stuff, and it is new.

Cheap ammo comes and goes and prices fluctuate. What is available today inexpensively might not be available or inexpensive tomorrow.

I shoot my reloads, but when I need inexpensive factory ammo I cruise for sales and buy what's inexpensive at that time. I get email flyers and flyers in the mail so I don't need to look very far. I have no idea what others do.
