Okay true story; here goes.

I was at a bar one night I probably shouldn't have been at when all of a sudden guy comes raging in the side door looking for some "f#*%ing a$$hole!". Well low and behold he finds him. A few words are exchanged and next thing you know the raging bull pulls out a (later to be found out) .25 caliber pistol and shoots the other fella in the face from two feet away. The guys head jerks back, he grabs at his profusely bleeding mouth and then spits, that's right, SPITS out the .25 caliber projectile that lodged in the roof of his mouth upon impact. Rare? Sure. But because of that crazy incident that I witnessed, I now carry .45.

The End.

The nine mm is used by 7/8 of the World. That should say something.

Congrats on getting a ccw. But I'd jump for 45 acp in that case. I love 9mm because I can just keep firing. But I'm trigger happy in that respect.

But after decades of buying, shooting, and carrying a large variety of handguns, I have learned that the most important factor is the guy doing the shooting and not the make, model, caliber of the gun. Hitting some perp in the elbow with a .45 will NOT produce better results than hitting him in the Aorta with a 9MM. I personally lean toward .40 S&W, but also have some .45 ACP, .45 Colt ("Long Colt"), .44 Spl, .44 Mag, .41 Mag, evan the lowly .38 Spl handguns, and carry what I consider to be the best fit for where I'm going and what I plan to do. But the 9MM, when properly applied (including hitting a vital spot), is plenty of "stopping power".
This. And this should be plastered all over the 1911 sub forum.
