Just get both, if you like shooting both, variety is the spice of life.
Sold my g27 and got g 19. now i shoot all 9mm. Got xd9 n beretta nano . slightly cheaper to shoot and my follow up shoots are more consistent.
considering the Department of Homeland Security just purchased 450million rounds of JHP .40cal ammo I'd say 9mm will be easier to get.
I will be posting a series of videos on my youtube channel this summer regarding balistics. I will be doing more than just the typical "shoot into water jugs" testing.
I will be testing in the following situations:
shooting JHP through car doors and into balstic media
shooting JHP through Pylwood and into balstic media
shooting JHP through Drywall and into balstic media
shooting JHP through car windows and into balstic media
If you want your round tested feel free to post message me and we can work something out. I don't have the means to buy all the common hand gun rounds on the market to test them. I have the means to test every round except the .357sig.
I would love to test some Gold Dots, Hornady Critical Duty/Critical Defense, Federal, Winchester, Etc. Post message me. for more details or suggestions.
