    Yes or No?

    If I did have guns I would have a few .45's, .22's and a 10mm

    DO I need a 9mm?

    Won't use it for self defense I would use it for plinking.....

    Opinions..

    You need a 9mm, a .357, a .44, and a .380.

    .45 and .22 are fine plinking calibers.
    9 is fine, but you don't "need" one of every caliber...

    um


    You should buy a 9mm.

    Oh, I meant you need to buy those other calibers in addition to the .45, 10mm, and .22 pistols you already own.

    Cheap to shoot, easy to shoot, hi-cap, useful for both self-defense & plinking. I'd keep it. Variety is the ****e of life.

    The .44 is a cool caliber for pistol and carbine combo . . . handgun hunting anyone? I think the .44 is fo wheelgunners what the 10mm is for guys that shoot autoladers.

    .380 is the smallest caliber I will carry in a pocket pistol. I guess a .32 could substitute for a .380.

    I don't think you need a different caliber that would perform the same function as .45. The benefits I see to it are picking up cheaper ammo than .45, the availability of it in terms of ammo shortages, and that is about it. No, you don't need a 9, but it might be nice to have.

    I suppose that a .32 caliber would be OK if you were going out for a casual afternoon and were a little concerned for your safety at a PETTING ZOO! I think that a .380 would be minimum protection! How much is your LIFE worth?

    Yeah, .380 is the minimum in my opinion, and even that I don't trust so much.

    Yes of course you need a 9mm. The military handgun caliber is 9mm. When the ammo manufacturers fill the orders for them they make huge over-runs and thus 9mm is the cheapest to shoot.

    The more shooting the better shot you will be and the more fun shooting becomes.

    Well, I'll be in the market for a quality 9mm around the first of the month - next. Hi-cap mags, anyone? No Davis, Cobra, or Jennings or....... for me! I might even try out a 9mm Makarov (9x18mm) for fun.
