Get the 9mm!! The size difference a 9mm hole and a 40 cal hole is minimal. The budy tissue will be damaged the same. You are more likely to put more holes in a target/attacker with a 9mm than a 40 cal. Besides, 9mm ammo is cheaper. This means you can practice more for less and carry more ammo in your sidearm than you would a 40 cal. In a gun fight the odds are you'll pray and spray. Your odds go up if you're shooting 15 rounds of 9mm instead of 12 rounds of 40 cal. I mean...I'm a professional what do I know?
