Honestly not sure exactly how the two compare. Anyone have a link?
All I know is at that range I can put a. 45 or 10mm in your head every time. With the sp101. 357 I would have to aim center mass and hope you're not wearing a vest.

Fair enough. Every one has a preference and mine would be a 357mag revolver.

A longer barreled one like the patrolman. Than I'm with you. That thing is fantastic and I could shoot your eye out at 50 yards kinda hard to conceal though. If the snubby works for you. Go with it. I just can't seem to shoot the damn thing. Lol

True. But 1 well placed shot is always better than 5 shots.

I would have to say xdm compact with a 460 rowland kit. Between 10-14 rounds of 44magnum level performance.

Next inline i would say xdm compact 45acp .

Colt new agent/defender 7+1 45acp.

While i like the idea of the springfield xds they really dropped the ball not making it 7+1

Then there is the soviet tokarev 7.62x25 very slim very powerful for its sixe round. Too much penetration and speed for practical self defense
