9mm vs. ?? threads of recent are not as colorful compared to some in the past.  Maybe the horse has been beaten into oblivion.  However, just because I can, I dug up an old visual to add to the seemin

We're not into dude on dude stuff like .40SW adherents are.    

The best caliber is the one you carry daily.

3 pages debating 9mm. <_<  Well thank God that Hillary isn't president because we wouldn't have time for this nonsense!  We'd all be out hoarding ammo and buying any gun on sale :panic:

22 - 45 beats a knife at a gunfight every time.

?????? not so sure on that....take some blade training and compare it to what can be done with a pocket pistol like a .22 / .32 etc.  If I get to pick the blade I would take one over several pistols I can think of.

Caliber, like everything else, is application driven.  If the manufacturers would start making a 158 gr. 357 Magnum Rimless JHP; it and a .22LR would cover all my handgun needs. Until then a .40 S&W and a .45 ACP will be required.

But no, they waste their time with nonsense no one wants like .45 GAP, .357 SIG, and 10mm. biggrin.gif

You pretty much just said you are wanting a 155gr 10mm , I would suggest the Dan Wesson RZ-10 to go with your round of choice.

For that application (Heavy, oversized gun, with limited round count, that fires a big azz bullet) I already have a 1911 loaded with Federal 230 grain HST’s. Why would I want to downgrade? biggrin.gif

Y'all let me know when these fantastical advances in 9mm ammo technology start delivering 180+ grains of earth-shattering devastation.

And let us know how many 147 grain pellets you enjoy receiving.

I think 9mm reaches 180+ sometime after the slide locks back on a .45 since the 9mm isn't done at that point. :D

How about 3680 grains of 9mm with one trigger pull.

Okay, so I'm not even going to touch the CLIP reference debate.

This could go on for awhile I know, but how about 12,400 grains of 9mm?

Well, going with my argument that 9mm is the 'best' as long as we consider that .357Mag/.38 Special are 9mm, got ya' covered! :dirty:

Bottom line is,  a well placed shot with any of these 9mm, .355 or .356 nominal bullet diameter cartridges and it will be a good self defense round, PERIOD.

Why, you think they have better guns/ammo in the North?  I don’t know what this has to do with handgun calibers, but I was born less than 100 miles from the Capitol of the Confederacy; how about you?
