Another dig at 9mm. What's up with that?
Haha Darn, I thought I'd concealed that little dig ...

Haha Darn, I thought I'd concealed that little dig so well that nobody would notice it. LOL Guess my point was why buy a .40 if you want to shoot 9mm? I like the ballistics of the .357 Sig, so that makes sense to me, but the 9mm, not so much. I carry a 9mm as a backup to a .45ACP, but rarely as a primary. A few years ago, one of my guys shot a BG in the head with a 9MM when the BG was trying to run over us in a stolen SUV, loaded with over a thousand pounds of marijuana. I don't think he would have survived a 230 Grain JHP in .45ACP. I know this argument is worn out, so I won't go on.

I bought my Gen4 Glock22 about two years ago and it is one of my home defense guns. I attached an Insight M6 light/laser combo and everything works great. With a strong grip double or even triple taps are easy with the target 7-10 yds.
