    9mm
    You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

    I never shot the P239 in anything but 9mm and I picked that caliber because it will get the job done with the right brand and type of ammo and it's not as expensive to shoot as my .45 P220... .357sig IS EXPENSIVE at $25/50 rounds.

    Go with the 9mm.....tons of ammo available.....lots of good carry ammo....and the .357 Sig, to me.....was not very impressive....just a lot more noise than the 9mm...and way more expensive ammo.

    Well... This thread is really all about what people like; not which will work better, because as we all know, any of these rounds will get it done without a problem.

    There are many reasons for people who choose their favorite round; ask yourself what your priorities are, and be honest with yourself. I like the 357 sig for many of the reasons people do not; I guess I'm weird like that. With all of that said, I'd proudly carry anything in the above mentioned rounds.

    9mm= Cheaper ammo, easy to control (recoil lower)

    357sig=Great for penetration, recoil is a bit snappy but not bad, you can find this ammo in Winchester white box in Walmart(I've seen it in several Walmarts

    40=great overall caliber with street proven records, ammo will cost more, a greater chance of better stopping power (shot placement still important), ammo widely available

    Each caliber offer something the other doesn't. I would have to say the best one is the one that fits your needs and accurate with.

    I have both my carry guns in 357 Sig. I reload it at about 8 bucks a box. Used brass free, 9 grains of 800X, 125 grain Montana Gold 357 Sig bullet.
    It has exactly the same point of aim as my Federal HP carry load.
