    Low Flash Handgun Ammo (Defense Ammo)

    Looking for which handgun ammo has a low flash intensity. I heard Speer Gold Dots but am interested in finding more options.

    This is a good read:

    Low Light Essentials

    The only caveat I would say, is before you get to worried about, try shooting in the dark or low light. The flash isn't as blinding as some say.

    Hornady's Critical Defense is marketed as "Minimal muzzle flash protects night vision."

    Winchester's Ranger lineup has been reviewed as low flash ammo on various forums.

    Buffalo Bore's Barnes 9mm 115gr TAC-XP Low Flash and 124gr Penetrator lines are marketed as "low flash".

    DoubleTap ammo has also been reviewed as low flash ammo on various forums.

    The RA9T from Winchester is pretty low flash too. However, if you're shooting from a really short barrel you'll get more unburnt powder coming out the muzzle which contributes to flash. I don't notice any flash from the normal 4"+ barrels on my glocks (I don't own a G26).

    Or if you have an FNP tactical you can just screw a flash suppressor on it.
    Those who would trade safety for liberty deserve neither

    I have an FNX-9.

    The link from skifast has some good material that I need to read in more detail.

    I'm at the stage where I'm looking for options to run 100 rounds through and see which seems to work the best.
