    I have 3 9mm handguns (small, medium, and large), and I have one .40 S&W (xd40sc). I'm comfortable and confident in my abilities and the performance of each weapon and their respective caliber. Carry what you perform the best with, and if you have multiple of both then carry what fits your circumstance and wardrobe/carry method.

    I agree. I sold 2 .40s, and XD and a Beretta. Now I have a 9mm and a 10mm. For extra power I believe the 10mm has more than enough. I keep the 10mm at home.

    9mm for me, but I like mouseguns, and I'm kind of cheap, but also too lazy to reload much, so I can buy 9 for only marginally more than I could reload it, so I don't feel too guilty over my laziness.

    honestly I don't think it matters much.

    I applaud Mr Pincus for reminding us to continually reexamine our beliefs, reasoning, and practices, and to have the courage to change them.

    You are not kidding. I got people in my unit that can't even hit what they are aiming at in a controlled enviorment. So I don't know how the heck that statement is true.

    Here are two videos (one of each caliber). The .40 cal 180gr gold dot went 13 inches in and expanded to .68 inches. 9mm 147gr hst went 13 inches also and expanded to .66. Would this make a significant difference in a human target? This particular youtube channel has a TON of videos of different bullets, weights, and calibers, worth looking at, you'd be amazed at some bullets that fail completely.

    Like my 9mm Glocks and with the better ammo that has come out in this offering over the past 5-10 years..the Nine is a good carry caliber. I love my 45ACP and always felt the 40S&W was NOT able to be the best of both worlds.

    I vaguely remember Ayoob once saying something about how he's comfortable with .22 since he knows the Bg would be shot once in each eye.

    I think this study referenced by 10thmntn reinforces the importance of accuracy.

    At least until sawed-off's are legal.

    Good read, I really appreciate a pro coming out and admitting in there mind that they were wrong. Whether we agree or not, it shows character. I carry a .45, because thats what I shoot well. I see nothing wrong with carrying what you are comfortable with.
