    I think anyone who tries to definitively answer this question has outed themselves as pretty far from being a "pro."
    Guest1, Cuda66 and Majorlk like this.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Handgun cartridges are not really known for stopping power. I would take the one I can shoot most accurately both from a stance and one handed on the move point shooting....... because with handgun cartridges shot placement and getting as many rounds on target as possible to throw the attacker oout of his/her ooda loop is the most important factor when it comes to winning a gun fight

    It's obvious which one.

    The one you shoot the best with.

    Maybe: Orange.

    The only thing I would entertain as far as the "stopping power" is concerned in this topic would be choice of ammunition. A 158gr +P LSWC may fair better than a 115gr 9mm FMJ etc. but assuming that they are using premium "defensive" ammunition....it's about a horse a piece.

    They both have the power to stop when you cease pulling on the trigger.

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
