Default 9mm for ccw?

How many carry 9mm for ccw? I was thinking about maybe getting on(I carry .40 and .45acp). I seen this nice FN at the shop for under $600. I know a lot use 9's for the range but what about carrying? thoughts? suggestions?

EDC's an M&P Shield 9mm, loaded with modern ammo. Light, concealable, easy to handle, cheap to shoot. Practice at least once a week. Bottom line, if you're not well drilled enough to stop a threat with a 9, likely as not you won't stop it with a 40 or 45.

let me ask you a question. which would be more important when confronting a BG and having to use a pistol for SD, the caliber or reliablity?

the caliber debate has been just about done to death, and IMO it's a moot point. many people carry 9mm, many carry a 45, many carry a 40, and so on. what matters is being able to hit your intended target and that the pistol you carry goes bang everytime you pull the trigger.

and carry the largest caliber, that you can hit with accurately. several hits with a 380 will trump misses with a 44 everyday.
