Thread: Is the 9mm the new .22?

    I have carried a 9mm and a 45 for years. That being said I prefer the 9mm with hi cap mags.

    Oh, I agree completely!! I just wanted to point out to the chest beater that his preferred .40 and .45 were just as 'wimpy' as the 9mm is when compared to a round that can throw a 240gr bullet at over 2000fps. Compared to a rifle round, the .454 is still marginal.

    As long as the hits are center mass, the BG "should" stop. One may not be enough. Lets say at least two rounds. You still have to hit the center of a moving target. I would practice moving while you are shooting too. If you can get two things moving at the same time and still score hits, I'm thinking 9mm, 40 or .45 will work just fine. (Maybe even a little ole .22 if you don't hit a rib. Of course that may really cause the bullet to wreck havoc.)

    all i was going for in this posting is now that in our "modern" times, 9mm is cheap enough we can train with it and get a better feel for the "feel" of a shot rather than the .22 just making a snap sound.
