Welcome. Why do you alternate .45 rounds? Hydra-shoks were the standard for many years, but HSTs are an improvement with respect to not clogging the open point with fabric. I carry HST +P 230gs in my SIG 1911s. I wouldn't feel underpowered with H-Ss if there wasn't a lot of cloth or other things between me and the bad guy, but in winter with heavy outer garments, the HSTs are clearly superior.
