.45 hole = O
.9mm hole = o with deeper penetration.

I'm going with the .9MM... Not only does the .9MM have more penetration, but the bullets are a lot cheaper. I wouldn't pull a .45 out on someone unless they were standing 10 feet in front of me; otherwise I'd have to point up in the air to actually shoot them.

Ive never had to point up in the air to shoot anything with a .45, and i shoot targets anywhere from 3ft to 40yds all the time

I think he meant relative to the 9...lol. I get about 6-8 inches of drop at 20 yds with the .45. Much less than that with the 9. If you are shooting accurate at 40, you are either using some fairly hot loads or you are aiming pretty high.
