BTW... If carrying a 9 mm is spitting in the face of god, then Satan must be building a hell of an army of high capacity pistol carrying minions. Sheesh.

i find it better if people would share their time and tell me "this 9mm round is muy bueno-never had it fail/ non-expand" or "dude one time, shot a charging 300lbs boar with a such and such, dead as a doornail."

man that would make me feel better. and i dont mean to bash, its more like "aww he dont know cause of his upbringing"
I've always been a 45 guy but picked up a 9mm for the cheaper ammo. 350 rounds for 60 bucks for 9mm at Dunams Sports and for 250 rounds of .45 it's 120. So for me it was more trigger time at a lower cost. I do carry my 9mm as an EDC, but as others stated I carry HPs.

Im not a huge fan of the 9mm. But i own(d) my faie share. If your looking for a good load, Im looking at the new load from Hordany. There critical defence loads. They may be to new for a action report.

My 2cent.

Replace 9mm/45 with 380/9mm and you'll see the same arguments all over again. It will never end.
DUDE- It aint cool to rip off anothers kartoon

Yes sir. As you say sir. Right away sir. I didn't realize it was YOUR cartoon. My aging eyes must have missed the name and/or copyright on it.

You know, if you had sent me a PM and POLITELY asked me not to use it, I'd have said fine. No problem whatsoever.

One thing I can guarantee you......it will NEVER happen again.

My 1911 is 7+1

My XD9 subcompact is 16+1.

It's a trade off, and frankly I don't feel "undergunned" either way.

Proficiency......that is the most important factor.
