Dude you’re not getting it......SHOT PLACEMENT, PRACTICE SHOT PLACEMENT. The 3 most popular cartridges between the service/defensive pistols, 9mm-40S&W-45ACP, are all going to fail if not PLACED IN THE SPOT ON THE BAD GUY THAT IS GOING TO STOP BLOOD PUMPING , START BLOOD LEAKING VERY FAST OR STOP BRAIN ACTIVITY…….you can do this with a 22 LR.
Look at you budget, look at your resources, look at how much time you are truly going to be putting into this to become proficient, choose your caliber. They are all capable, they are only as capable as you and the time you put in learning how to shoot and fight with a pistol. It takes a lot of dedication, not going to happen overnight.
