    Which would you choose for home defense?

    You've got to make a choice-- 10+1 rounds of good defensive 45acp or 17+1 rounds of good defensive 9mm for a nightstand gun for home defense. You shoot both guns equally well and enjoy both. Which would you choose? Thanks!

    I would choose the 9mm for the capacity.

    I would choose the .45 with extra 13 round mags.

    I think that the first 4 posts set the tone for the rest of the thread.

    I'm gonna go with my 870. If the choice is between a high capacity 9mm or a .45? That's easy. Why would you need more than 8 rounds in a home defense scenario?

    I own both. My bedside gun is the 9mm with 17 + 1.

    Nothing wrong with either, but I would go with the .45 because I believe bigger is better when referring to SD calibers. Less rounds but bigger thump with the .45.

    I choose a Glock 19 with a 33rd Glock extended happy stick filled with quality name brand hollowpoints.

    Thats alot of rounds for me to use to get it right on target waking up from a dead sleep....the whitest of condition white.

    When I can maximize my rounds above 17 + 1, I will and do.
