regarding 9mm vs other calibers,
9mm = 90% 1 shot stopping power.
40 S&W= 95% 1 shot stopping power.
90 bad guys out of 100 down vs 95 out of 100 bg's down.
Those odds look pretty good to me :-)
RE: Iraq, our guys are using crap ball ammo over there, so yeah,
9mm isn't looking too good for that reason.
But the #1 reason to use 9mm? El-cheapo to shoot:image035:
100 practice rounds=$11.98 :image035:
