Default 9mm, 40s&w,45acp? Is there really a best?

So I have my favorites...but they are situation based.
-45acp for Home Defense/ Concealed Carry
-40s&w for Concealed Carry
-9mm for target practice

What do you choose? and why?
I personally dont think there is a BEST CHOICE...I think it is strictly based on what a SHOOTER IS ACCURATE with, because when the SHTF, its all about Shot Placement!

I have all the pistol calibers. I choose the one I shoot the best, and I shoot the Phoenix HP22 best of all.

Here we go again! How many times does this topic need to be thrashed about.

In the future please check the existing threads as this topic has been debated to death.

And here I was thinking this was a social forum rather than a library.

You left one out: .357 SIG. Call it a 9mm on steroids. It seems to be developing a following among cops because of the way it puts bad guys down hard.

The search function is your friend.

Why Rob Pincus now prefers the 9mm over .40 S&W for self defense



Why do I like the 9mm for EDC?

Two words, "Mozambique Drill"!






Why do I like the .45 ACP for EDC?
Big Holes mean More Leaks Out!

Drop the Blood Pressure,
Drop the Target!


Why do I like the 40 Slow & Weak (10mm Lite) for EDC?

I don't.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I think bottle neck pistol ammo is just silly.

I find the likes of the .45 GAP (2003) and the 357 Sig (1994) to be nothing more than expensive Designer Ammo.

I wish I had a dollar for every thread I've read on this subject. But, it's never boring 'cause there is always someone like cane brake to come along & add something interesting to the conversation.

WOW!!!! Last time I checked this was a FIREARMS TALK FORUM! I enjoy being on here and talking to other like minded individuals. IF EVERYBODY talked about totally original ideas and never brought up a similar topic, all we would have on here is replies that said "SEARCH FOR EXISTING THREADS".
I personally enjoy starting a conversation with GOOD GUN OWNERS. I dont care if it was brought up before, I want to talk about it, so I posted it! MAN WAY TO BE THE LITTLE BLACK STORM CLOUD...I actually enjoy hearing peoples perspectives and reasoning. I sorry that you dont
