    I've purchased a G19 and was reading through the owner's manual. I didn't recall reading any restrictions against the use of +P type ammo.
    Does anyone know whether the use of this type of ammo would create any issues?
    Thanks for your assistance.

    I wouldn't worry about it. LE agencies and scores of other shooters have been shooting +P out of their G19 for years and if there was a problem, I'm sure their would be some reports out there.

    All Glock 9mms are designed as military arms to use NATO Spec loaded cartridges, which is the high end of +P+. Use of commercial +P+ should be no problem, and has no history of problems. The legendary "kaboom Glocks" have all been traced back to hotrod reloads, as far as I have heard.............................elsullo

    Correct except for the 40 cal when it first came out. Glock did some work on later versions to strengthen the pistols in that caliber in next generations.

    I shoot +p in all my Glocks and I've never had a problem . As many LEO that use them I would say that it is not an issue .

    There is no high end to +P+, +P+ is any pressure over the +P rating, it can be 10 cup over, or 1,000,000 cup over :D
