Perhaps the Kareen is different, but I don't think it's at all advisable to run +P through a High Power. I'm really happy with standard pressure (Speer) 124 or 147 commercial loads. The standard 115...

I would suggest that the Detective slide was designed to drop in to an FM frame, which, although licensed and substantially similar, is not an exact duplicate of an FN frame.

It would allow me to easily check to see if the gun is on safe while in my holster.
