My daughter's fave. Dropped her first deer with a shot right through the heart. I was a very proud papa. Specially since my I-get-buck-fever-sometimes hunting partner was watching.

Big time. The condescending attitude and refusal to deal in facts is the worst part.

I was always a huge fan of the 9mm. Then one day I came across a deer hit on the side of the road, got the go ahead from state police via a phone call to go ahead and dispatch the doe (who had a broken back). I pulled my Springfield xd from my holster and fired a shot into the top of her head. Her head hit the dirt, but then she raised it right back up and be gain to bawl something awful. Another shot to the base of the head and neck was required. My next paycheck I bought a 45 1911. Haven't looked back since and the 9mm has since been sold.

As a firearms instructor, a well working .22 LR is hard to beat in a full sized semiautomatic. Great training pistols.

As a EDC for myself, I now use a Glock 23C in several calibers, factory .40 S&W, .357 Sig. I have a 9mm barrel and a .22 LR barrel and slide for training.

My SHTF sidearm, and my previous CC choice is a Glock 20 and a Glock 20SF. I would not venture into the woods for any reason without full power 10mm rounds in 20 round mags.

I keep extensions on my full size mags. Nothing says secure like ammo.

For a rifle, I like .22 in all flavors for plunking and training. My serious rifles are 5.56mm and .308.

Bottom line -- for me -- I feel that a .45 will drop 'em dead quicker than a 9mm and (knowing that this will draw a **** storm down on me for a variety of reasons) -- the 9mm is okay for a "girls"

was a caliberite -- if it can't be stopped by 8 rounds of .45, then I haven't any business shooting at it


You are living under the illusion that you can shoot a few handgun rounds and stop a fight 8 for example. Follow what you posted you have no business shooting if you caint stop it with 8 rounds. As numerous people have being hit with more than 8 rounds and survived that doisent make any sense.

I was shooting Ruger revolvers in 44 mag as soon as I could afford one and for years thought it was the only handgun I would ever need. If I could only have one that would be it. But I do like 45acp as well. I own more of them than 44's.

I am becoming increasingly fond of the .44 Special. There is just an extremely vast selection of bullets available that teamed up with the right receipe of powders give it a very wide range of utility. It can pretty closely imitate the .44 Magnum in performance, and when down loaded makes a pleasant shooting target load. And middle of the road loads are excellent for social purposes.

And the .44 Special can be had in the smaller framed Single Action guns like the three-screw Ruger or Colt New Frontier, making them perfect for everyday carry.

Yep, the .44 Special for me. It can do anything a .357 Magnum can, and more.
