    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.

    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.

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

    Gratz on deciding for yourself!

    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.

    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.

    5.7x28mm SS192 does the best job.

    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.
