Default Internet Gun Gurus

I guess all those cops, federal agents and military people that
carry and shoot the .40 S&W just don't know what they're doing,
while all the internet gun forum experts do.

Blah Blah Blah Yackety Schmackety....

9mm ~ 40 ~ 45 ALL will get the job done IF you as the shooter get the job done.

I am all about diversity....shoot the crap out of whatever you like. Carry whatever caliber you like and that YOU can shoot well enough to GET THE HITS YOU NEED. As long as you are using modern, premium defensive're golden.

Let us just save time and assume I am right, and have had the final word on the subject.

I recently saw .40 hollow-points with a cavity larger than my .45's defensive


I'm told the round sort of explodes upon penetration...

Default Video of Damage a 45acp causes on BALLISTICS GEL

I know this isn't 40 vs 45acp...but this is a video showing the damage of a 45acp hollow point on a real heart through Ballistics Gel....It will give you an idea on what a 45acp will do in action. I do lots of these tests on

I have seen some people say 10 mm is better than a .40 it is almost the same round look it up there is almost no difference in size or fps or stopping power the 45 has more stopping power the 9 mm os faster to me every round has it's place for the job at hand i have. 22 9 mm 10mm .40 .45 .454 .480 .500 .38 .375 .327. Up to a .50 cal and 37mm and 40mm different gun for the job .....and its up to you shoot what feels good to you it don't matter as long as your shooting thats all that matters so buy a lot of guns and shoot safe ....
