Civil Defense 9MM+P



SKU: LA-CD-9-014 Categories: ,


Compared to other top self-defense rounds, the Civil Defense 9mm+P has

  • 32 to 38% less felt recoil
  • 65 to 75% more velocity
  • 25 to 30% more kinetic energy
  • Reduced over-penetration
  • More stopping power

We designed the Civil Defense line to eliminate threats with one round by creating the maximum amount of damage and tissue disruption possible.

They do well against barriers, but when the cavity fills with fluid, the hydraulic pressure builds until the side walls of the projectile explode. With that explosion comes starburst pattern fragmentation, reduced over-penetration, and 100% energy transfer. Therefore, creating devastating trauma and multiple wound channels.

Weight: 50gr

Velocity: 2000 FPS

Kinetic Energy: 450 FPE

Accuracy: < 1″ @ 25 Meters

Terminal Effect: 3 ½ “W x 12” D

Rounds: 20 per box

The entire Civil Defense line is lead-free and California compliant.

    I’ve carried my Beretta 8000 on duty and CCW for over 20 years and I’ve never felt it was enough gun using 147 grain subsonic loads…but that was my duty load so I stuck with it. Knowing I have 3 mags of .357 level stopping power in a 9mm makes me really happy…awesome product…Thx!

    I was turned on to these rounds by a friend. He have me a box of 20. In my Glock 26 Gen 4, these produced a very loud shot with noticeably less recoil. I would like to run a few more rounds, but I was convinced enough to use these in my 26 as a daily carry. GREAT AMMO!

  3. Tom McKnight

    I tested the 9mm ammunition in a Sprinfield XDM Compact. The results were impressive. The test objects were 1 gallon plastic jugs filled with jello and wrapped with shirts, layers of newspaper, and a double layer about 1/8″ leather thing. The projectiles punctured through the material with ease and all though the wrap material. The jugs even burst and were done after one shot each. It took several FMJs to make the jugs a similar state, just for a comparison. The event was recorded and uploaded with the links placed on our Facebook page Emergency Management Preparedness Response Recovery, LLC.

    I was turned on to these by a fellow armed guard and former Maricopa County Sheriff. Depending on gig I’m working I either carry my Glock 19 or Glock 23. In my G19 alone, the weight difference from these rounds compared to the 124gr Speer gold dot is like day and night. Having a lighter belt/gun but still packing the punch of heavier rounds keeps my mind at ease while keeping my gear light. The less felt recoil and lighter gun weight makes my follow up shots clean and accurate. In my company alone there are now four different armed guards carrying this ammo with huge success at the range. Thank you.

    I’ve carried and fired ( through 3 of my 9 m/m’s-Sig-P229, CZ75 PO7 and a Kel-Tec PF9). with excellent results this 9 m/m Liberty Round since it came on the market. I recommend it in all calibers to my students and have no “second thoughts” about carrying this round “in harms way.”
    Great Work Gentlemen.

    “I Decided To Use These In My Beretta Cx4 Storm With 16in Barrel They Feed Perfectly, If These Guys Using A Pistol Are Getting Good Performance Try Them In Your Carbine! Impressive, Awesome, Super Performance!”
