    A Story Problem...

    1. Ron has owned a 9mm handgun for 13 years. He recently bought his first .45 cal handgun. Now that he owns both a .45 and a 9mm which side of this senseless debate should he weigh in on next time it comes up?

    Please answer and show your reasoning :

    Please answer and show your reasoning :

    Now that he can speak from experience...he has become a .45
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    caliber believer. He regrets that he was so dedicated to the 9mm.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    He now spends his time calling all his friends that he had debated with
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    concerning the effectiveness of his 9mm. He now also know, from
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    experience...either will do the job...it makes no real difference.

    After going several times to the chiropractor, he realized that packing that anchor was destrying his back and promptly sold it and bought a Hi-Power

    I own both and I shoot both well. I switch off every now and then
    without any concern.I buy my ammo in bulk so cost is minor
    consideration.

    Dressing light with my Kahr 9mm all stainless MK9.

    Dress light with a .45 SA champ. , but 9mm will do the job as well.

    Now that he has had 13 years with a training gun, he knows the virtues of both.
    The training wheels are now off and he has graduated to a professionals caliber, I hope he would be smart enough to stay out of such silly debates.
