    But if you want to make a really big hole, nothing works better than .45 ACP. :)

    Then there was the story about some idiot who shot himself in the forehead with his 9mm and talked to the medics all the way to the hospital. He was released no stupider than when he went in.

    I would consider a 9mm for my wife is she decided to carry but might lean toward a 38 super. For myself it is 45 ACP all day every day.
    And of course the LEO who shot a BG four times thru the lungs with his 45. The BG proceeded to assault the LEO, taking him to the ground and was in the process of beating the LEO to death.

    A passerby with a 9mm dispatched the thug with a shot to the head, and the LEO lived.

    Yessirreee, the 45 is a magic death ray gun which even a hit to the pinky is instantly lethal. Those 9mm's are just puffballs for girls when compared to a REAL man's gun.

  4. Haha you tell em doc! As someone who never wants to be shot I can honestly say that if a gun was pointed at my head I wouldn't stop and think "oh its just a 380 ill be fine". A bullet is a frickin bullet! I had a friend shot by a stray 22 in the upper thigh, she almost died several times because it wouldn't heal/drain properly. That was also from roughly 50 yards away

    practice practice practice, shot placement critical. I feel very proficient with my .17hmr, .22, .40, shotgun, and my compound bow. I really wouldnt want to be shot with either weapon. shot placement critical, practice practice practice.

    I own handguns in .22, 38, .357mag, 9mm, and 45cal. I would not want to get hit anywhere on me, with any of them. To me the idea that the .45 cal is the only gun to carry, is way off base. Yes, a 45 does have more stopping power, but is it always needed. There are many deaths on the streets every year, and I'm sure they're not all using 45's. A good part of the worlds police and military use the 9mm, and I'm sure they have the records and studies to show why. The 9mm personal protection ammo is nothing to sneeze at. I sometimes carry a 45, and sometimes a 9mm. I don't feel any less safe carrying the 9mm. Remember, it was only a 22cal the killed Robert Kennedy. I like the 45, and think it's a fun gun to shoot, but I think it's need, has been over hyped. As a wise old shooter told me years ago in a discussion about best carry caliber, he said,
    "Son, remember nobody likes to leak".

    Bah, you have to make a compromise in a carry gun and it simply isn't practical to lug around a Desert Eagle in 50AE. A 9mm that you CAN carry is still better than a 50AE that you can't.

    I think I will agree with 50SR9 on this!!

    I personally knew someone, and read stories of people killed by a single .22. I carry Hornady 9mm Critical Defense.
