Tampa, FL – GECO has announced the release of two new lines of personal defense ammunition: RED ZONE and ACTION EXTREME.  Each of these new lines embodies the required features and standards of modern defensive ammunition, including excellent deformation with deep penetration and high residual mass.  By meeting these demands, GECO has ensured that RED ZONE and ACTION EXTREME can be trusted and relied upon for personal defense.

GECO RED ZONE 9mm is the ultimate personal defense cartridge. Featuring aggressive terminal performance and a very low risk of over penetration, RED ZONE ensures that each round delivers devastating expansion and on-point accuracy. Optimized for maximum performance when fired out of short-barreled 9mm pistols, RED ZONE is a superior option for concealed carry pistols and home defense firearms.
