    which caliber

    I am at a loss on which caliber would be best for carry. My interest is in 9mm (I have always used since I got into firearms), .45 or .357sig.

    Which would be best to carry and what are the drawbacks of each.

    The best to carry is the one your the most accurate with. One that you can practice with most.

    9mm is cheaper than 45 or 357 sig,if you can shoot it well then just get some good SD ammo,shot placement is very important,and after watching 48 hours I've seen people get killed with everything but a lot of them die from smaller calibres like .380 and 9mm is a big favorite

    First, Rule #9:

    9. We have learned from bitter experience that discussions of certain subjects (politics, religion, abortion, sexual orientation, etc) often degenerate quickly. For this reason, we generally discourage these subjects in our discussions. We also discourage "caliber wars" and the virtues of "open carry" topic; strongly encouraging you to take these discussions to other forums where these topics are the focus.
    Second since you are new here I'd suggest using the SEARCH function before posting a question that general, this has been discussed in the past.
