    [QUOTE=OUTTAHERE;120453]If you want something that is fun and less expensive to shoot, go with the 9mm. If you want stopping power, go with the
    .45. You might have to shoot it a little more to get proficient with it, but once you get used to the report and the recoil
    you'll find that you can get back on target just about as quickly as with a 9mm. I assume that the reason that you're going to
    carry a weapon is in the event that you do have to shoot someone that you want to stop that person's aggression and
    neutralize them as quickly and efficiently as possible. For my 2 cents worth --- .45 hands down. It's worth the extra money
    for ammo and training to have the peace of mind it brings.[/QUOTE

    Sir Isaac Newton would disagree. Read up on the third law of motion. Better yet 15 rounds 20 seconds timed on target, 21 feet. See who puts more in the X ring. Wait, your 1911 only holds 8. Ok, bring a .45 glock. The 9mm will win hands down. It is all about rounds on target.

    I would suggest before you call a peron a liar you know what and who you are talking about. The facts, I have worked personal security where the first happen the second happen during a break-in in my home. I am not proud of these events, killing is a no win situation for everyone. I posted here for one reason and one only, a question was asked I gave my answer and the why for that answer. If you have an issue with the truth that is fine but do not call someone a liar WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE THE FACTS.

    you can tell the difference between someone bragging and someone speaking the truth. turth is the personal protection buisness is no joke. sometimes you have to take a life to protect a life. im thankful i never have had to take a life, but if the time came to " its him or me" i know it wont be me. i made that decision before i chose to carry let alone work in this buisness. next time dont call someone a liar, its their info on the matter and their life. not yours. you are entitled to your opinoin and i respect that, but please respect other peoples as well.

    Your right, I am entitled to my opinion, and i am sicking to it. Most peace officers only fire their duty weapons at the range for their entire 20 year careers. I come in here, and three regular guys in three days have dropped the hammer on someone. One person twice. Most people who have done the unthinkable, don't come to a website and tell others about their tragedies in a subject called caliber effectiveness. I am sticking to my position. Don't like it? Tough.

    AMEN Brother!!

    .45 or .357Mag...

    The felt recoil is a factor of ejected weight. Yes the .45 will recoil a bit more with the heavier round, but with some practice it will begin to feel natural. It's a matter of personal choice. Since you asked for opinions in a public forum you will get many. Yes the .45 ammo is harder to find and you will pay more for it. So analyze all the factors before making the decision and good luck.

    I like the .45 and I also like the .357 both for different reasons. The .357 is a revolver and I like revolver shooting as it kinda slows you down and makes breath and trigger control very important to remember.

    To each his/her own

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Talking OK Fellas!!!

    I've read all three pages of posts mentioning 9mm, .40, .45, & .357. But I just spoke with my firearm(mr. Kimber) and he said that his 10mm rules!!! Talking about stopping power, I load my Kimber with 180 gr. Buffalo Bore ammo (1,350fps/782 ft. lbs.) Wow!!!

    Do you guys remember the 1911 conversion kit turning the .45acp into the powerful .45 SUPER!!!

    my story? lets see, family is all cops, some of my close friends are cops, some swat, lots of military friends and a few in the family. i personaly have worked security since i was 18.im 27 now adn still doing it. armed security since 21, been through mulitple firearms classes, and work part time at my local gun range. call me young or whatever, but i do ride alongs and have seen more than most would want to. noone wins a gun fight.

    my whole point is dont call someone out for there life story when u dont know them. we can sit here all day and bs all we want. point is were adults not high schoolers who need to one up eachother. i mean do u really care about whos shot someone and who has not and if and why they want to post is? who cares. get over it and lets just agree to dsagree.
