New Large Caliber Personal Defense Round
45 ACP 230 GR Jacketed Hollow Point – In Stock
In response to consumer demand, GS Custom has started manufacturing 45 ACP 230 GR JHP for personal defense. National and international events are driving increased interest in personal defense. Moreover, it is driving sales of firearms and ammunition.
Month after month US firearms sales continue to break sales records. A significant part of the sales are for personal defense firearms. In addition, consumers are asking for larger caliber compact concealed carry firearms. Several firearms manufacturers have introduced new lines of compact personal defense weapons, for instance, Springfield Armory, Smith & Wesson, Glock, and Sig Sauer. Their models include the Springfield XDs, the M&P Shield, and the Glock 30.
Concealed carriers want the stopping power of a larger personal defense round. Furthermore, law enforcement officers carry and suggest jacketed hollow point ammunition for personal defense. A large-caliber 45 ACP with a 230 GR jacketed hollow point bullet is an effective personal defense combination. A well placed center of mass hit with a 45 ACP 230 GR JHP can stop an attacker.
Junior Shooters – Growing the Sport – Home Team Advantage
It pleases us at GS Custom when we hear from our customers about how much they like what we do. We received a very special note from the father of a junior competitive shooting team. They call the team Havoc Legion. Father Kris who is active duty military and a competitor, sent along a message from his team of junior shooters (USPSA – Steel Challenge – GSSF ). He said, “The kids get pretty excited for ammo for the junior shooter program. They wanted to say thanks for the competitive shooter discount.” They all stay very busy with service, school, shooting, and keeping up with their webpage, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook followers. See their story at HAVOC LEGION.
One of the services offered by GS Custom is selling select firearms on consignment. We recently have had a big turnover in the consignment case. Lots of great used guns have found a new home. We have also added several new arrivals to the inventory. Guns such as the Colt Gold Cup 45 ACP, Sig Sauer P220 22LR, and the Beretta 96 40 S&W would make a great addition to any collection. These guns sell themselves; some of them get adopted before we can add them to the online catalog. Selling firearms on consignment ensures both the buyer and the seller a fair price for a quality item. Stop in the shop and take a look at the great pistols, rifles, and shotguns in the consignment case. You can see a gun case view of the firearms HERE.

GS Custom makes competition grade ammo for active competitors. Whether you are a competitive shooter or a shooter who wants a real competitive edge with your target shooting, we manufacture ammunition to meet your needs. We make competitive ammunition in several calibers; however, the most popular is the 9mm 147gr FMJ cartridge.
We manufacture our 9mm 147 gr FMJ rounds to the competitor’s specifications. Like all of our products, we use the highest quality components such as Federal Premium® primers and Hodgdon TiteGroup™ powder. These subsonic rounds exceed the minimum requirements for minor power factor made to give you, the competitor, the advantage.
Mastering accuracy depends on good shooting technique, controlling recoil, and ensuring the proper cycling of the firearm. These 9mm 147 gr FMJ rounds help you meet these goals by balancing bullet weight, velocity, type, and overall length.
