    If you seriously think it was created as a "gimmick", you have no idea about the round, nor what you are talking about.

    Not completely true. The FBI's issue handgun apparently will be chambered for 9MM; however, agents can carry handguns & cartridges from an approved list.

    You know...except for that whole Kahr PM9 and PM40 being exactly the same size. And that whole Kahr CM9 and CM40 being exactly the same size. Oh yeah...and that whole Smith & Wesson Shield 9 and 40 being exactly the same size. That pesky Springfield Armory XDs 9 and XDs 40 being exactly the same size.

    Upsize it a bit....that whole Glock 19 in 9mm and Glock 23 in 40 being exactly the same size. Damn, that Glock 17 in 9mm and the Glock 22 being exactly the same size.

    Funny thing...sad thing...ironic thing...pathetic thing...functionally it doesn't make even a tiny bit of difference whether 97% of the gun carrying public carries a Beretta Jetfire .22 short or a Desert Eagle 50AE, they're not going to do something silly like actually shoot or train with their gun, no matter what they carry. Whatever gun they are carrying is a prophylactic...it's just something to make them feel better knowing they have it.

    The caliber debate is moot. With modern defensive ammunition and bullet technology there isn't a whisp of a functional difference between the "Big Five" defensive calibers when loaded with premium defensive ammunition. The .38, 9mm, 40, 45, and 357 are all magnificent choices (as bad as ANY handgun caliber truly is)...the practical/mechanical/physiological ability of a given round to stop a violent attack is lost as soon as the goober on the trigger starts issuing rounds everywhere but into the high center mass or central nervous system of an attacker.
    You can't always be safe, but you can always be dangerous.
