    Then you should have long guns avialable. It's hard to pack my Mossy Persuader when out and about, but it's close at hand in the house. If necessity presents I can fight my way to the shotty with the 9mm on my person.
    "I have never been convinced that 9mm is not an effective weapon."
    The 9X19 got a rep as an inadequate stopper because of military ball ammo.
    With modern HP ammo and good shot placement (a univeral caveat for any shooting situation) the 9X19 seems to work OK. Sure, other loads are a couple of points ahead of it in the street shooting studies, but the defensive calibers from the 9X19 on up aren't more than a couple percentage points apart, and all are in the mid-90s using JHP ammo. The nice thing about the
    9mmP is that it's cheaper than most other fighting calibers allowing more practice per $. A hit with a 9mm beats a miss with anything.
    Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat. There ARE things to be feared more than death. The fyrd is a Constitutional imperative.

    Well since its a USMC list, I figure Marines tend to attend a few gunfights. Its what they practice for and what they are designed to do.

    As far as the 9mm. I agree on the cheap factor. I cant reload easily where I am currently, so I like cheap versus not as cheap. I think that if you do carry with a 9mm, its good to have a hicap magazine. That way if one does not stop the aggressor, the 10 other rounds following near in suit should. It may not be a one shot stopping caliber, but multiple hits should get anyones attention.

    Yes, very true. After searching around I've seen this for the rangers, seals, marines, and everyone else for that matter that I did not include. None the less its a good list for all those preparing for conflict, getting caught in conflict, or heading into conflict. Not quite creed like, but all points make a point.
