    9mm vs 45ACP thats easy

    9mm carry more shoot more times

    45ACP carry less knock down more

    I love the gun room, and yet there is always a few Glocks in the case, and SKS on the shelf… and Warren would crap himself if he knew I owned a glock, but on a lighter note, I forget what the grand daughters name is but she is very good looking, and I can't remember if she is legal either

    Both reasonably good rounds, this has probably been discussed more times..or argued depending on the moment than I could count on an 8 place odometer.

    Neither of them will stop a rabid hamster

    The only solution is the 10 GA

    I agree, I've seen my Ferret captain sparkles on wine coolers and It's truly frightening. Id go 10 gauge slug.

    Both. My handguns are either 9mm or .45auto. Makes keeping ammo on hand easy.

    thinking the two calibers are not interchangable. the 45 ammo wont fit in the 9mm and 9mm falls out of the 45.

    45ACP is what real men carry.. 9mm is for pu$sies who just cannot handle the muzzle blast of the big Four-Five..

    I have to confess I am a pu$sy, so I carry the 9mm.. :rolleyes:

    I would get a double barrel pistol! One side a 9mm and the other side a .45. That way i'd be ready for anything.

    Come to think of it, this is the kind of idiotic thing those guys at Sons of Guns would make. I should write to them...

    someone should make an in between cartridge, something bigger than a 9mm but more capacity than a .45, Then this debate would absolutely be done with....

    .45acp FTW those pesky 9mms and 40 short and weaks just fall in the .45 brass and dick up the reloading process. Not to mention RA45T is wicked effective on deer. I could be convinced to start loading 9mm again tho if someone will donate an MP5SD to me. :winkkiss:
