Your a police officer in a situation where your forced to defend yourself. the assailant is shooting at you and your hit all the rounds are hollow points would you rather be hit by a 9mm 40, or a 45?

... None.

But arguably 9mm might be the best chance for survival. I'm sure others disagree.

Agreed, None, but since I've been there more then once I promise you that NONE of you want to get hit in the Torso with a 5.45 round at almost farting distance,.......
I have been present at a test where someone was shot with a 9mm at 5 ft wearing a level IV TAC vest with plates and it still felt like a boxers punch.....

A .22lr would still suck and it also depends on where you're hit, most likely anywhere in the torso with any of them, would put you ups sh$&'s creek, hopefully a peace officer would have some body armor in play.

While I will agree with "none of the above", of the three listed I would think I would have a better survival chance by being shot with the 9mm.

Damn. What if I WERE shot with a 9mm and died. After all my bad-mouthing the 9mm, it would be both ironic and insulting to be done in by that round.

Some questions shouldn't even be asked. The old adage "no such thing as a dumb question" turns out to be wrong.

like we get to pick and choose now what the BG's are going to use to shoot us!

now a more intelligent approach might be, if shot with any of the above calibers, which one would you have a higher probablity of living through.

sometimes i wonder if some people actually put any real thought into the questions they ask.
