This is a discussion on Caliber Wars are over for me within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by retsupt99 Anyone want some? Definitely, and pass the salt....
To the OP, I sure hope this means you won't start, or reply to another 'caliber war' post. I don't care what any of you carry... as long as you carry.
Get the U.N. out of the U.S.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

I saw that thread, and it was not a caliber war, in and of itself. It was simply math and science. Keep in mind that 9mm is taken very seriously at Warriortalk, and the guy who started the thread on WT uses 9mm. The facts presented can be used to argue for OR against bullet diameter.
Carry what you train with no mater what the caliber it is like Ford And Chevy each of us drive the one we like same with guns whatever you carry learn it make it your Friend and it will take care of you I have trained with and carry A 45 and will stick with it.
Be safe with whatever you choose.

Thanks for the new information. It didn't change my mind however.

9mm in the right hand and a .45 in the left.
As others have said, and it's in my sig, caliber doesn't matter if you can't hit your target.
Don't mind reading caliber wars, as long as they have some factual information as did this thread. My mind is never closed, who knows, someday I may be convinced into owning a 45.
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.
As 10thmtn has just discovered...you need to develop a thick skin on this forum.
Especially when folks start buttering up the popcorn on you.
BTW: Which caliber penetrates THICK SKIN better 9mm or .45 ?
Come on now guys now everyone here knows that the 9mm is a useless cartridge,oh and it takes like 16 rounds to even make someone notice they've been shot. So everyone here can just sent me all of their 9mm ammo and guns chambered in this useless caliber.
Snub nose revolvers,the original concealed carry guns.
This should be fun.
Seriously, I agree with Janq. Goliath laughed at David's caliber of personal defense.
Keep safe, carry what you are comfortable with, and make the world a better place.
As for me and my house, we will carry 9mm for CC and use the .40 for HD if the 12 gauge is somehow unavailable.
