I know it wont stand up to +p but how hot a load will it take without any possibility of damage.My daughter in law wants to carry it and I wonder if it up to the task.The little COLT is very tight.
My PPS is a 1912-1913 and I've fired plenty of the standard pressure Federal 110 gr. JHP "personal defense" with no visible effects. Heavier is probably better but aside from target wadcutters and 130 gr. ball, this is the only standard pressure hollowpoint I could get for a while. Shoots nice and straight and doesn't pound you or the gun. I rarely carry mine but I like it because you get 4" bullet performance from a gun that feels like a 6-shot "j-frame".
