    I don't care what anyone says about the 9mm, I'll still carry my .45 ACP.

    I have two carry guns...one is a full size .40S&W Baby Desert Eagle, the other is a full size .45ACP HK USP45.
    There is a reason for this. both are designed to function come hell or high water. My son has a great 9mm...the Sig P226. If I had to carry a nine, it would either be the SIG P226 or the HK USP9. I carried the Beretta M-9 while I was active duty...great gun but really bulky for a 9MM ( I never had a bit of problems with it). My buddy who is a retired Marine absolutely hates the M-9. He suffered two failures during his 20 year career. One was a training incident that rendered the gun a club due to slide stop failure, the other was an internal mechanical failure that rendered the weapon a club at a time when he needed it most and had it not been for the Marine next to him pulling him out of harms way...he would be a white cross in a Veterans Cemetery

    If this had been asked by anybody other than LocalGirl, I wouldn't feel it was a poke at my self-esteem...

    I Prefer 9mm myself I carry what I practie with practice with what I carry.

    Don't get me wrong 45 ACP is great, but can get really expensive and I feel very comfortable with gold dots in 9 for defense.

    As stated much better to hit with 9 then miss with a larger round.

    Carry whatever your comfortable with and then pratice, practice, practice, personaly I have at least one of each caliber, and I rotate them every couple of weeks, but they are all glocks, so there not much differant to shoot, the Miltary has differant needs so there really is no comparison, but the various police agency's use all of them some use 9s some 40s and some 45s and 357 Sigs, but the reserch I have done indicate's the 40 is used most

    This whole thread is sooooo boring. It has been going on for decades and the arguments haven't changed a bit!

I am sure there is some data out there somewhere.

    I really don't know, just asking the question... But I would think that the 45 would cause more ache than that 9. Just my thought.
    Not much will cause ache to a crack head....Best to introduce him to a heart stopping experience and it still may take a few seconds..
