if placement was perfect, I'd prefer the larger caliber always. problem is, under stress you're gonna miss anything past 5 feet, and with .45 you'll run out of ammo alot quicker then a magazine of 9mm.
if that is your honest belief in your abilities---please remember that you should "know your target and whats beyond it".
so, are you safe to shoot at 5 feet? can you keep track of whats beyound your target, and how much do you miss by?
most studies report that 89% of rounds fired by CCW holders are on target.
its like none of us want to fire the gun in anger but--please do not drag down the average is you do
