Sorry i was just joking.Open or concealed,time to target would be my concern.My choice still would be 38 with rem.110gr.sjhp or 45acp doubletap 185gr.nosler jhp.Although ballistic tests 8/29/12 amer.rifle.by richard mann.had the 40 with win180pdxi leading with11"pen.2.08expan.988fps the 38 was close 1.71ex.10.5pen. 895fps. and the 45 at 1.86ex. 10"pen.1144fps. Carrying a 15 oz.38 or a 45 at 31oz the baby eagles 41oz. has to be a factor.
