+1 This gives you redundancy (two is one).I don't see anything wrong with having "twins". If it's great for your wife, and great for you also, and you both carry, go for it. Don't try to fix what ain't broke. It's not really any different than owning a different gun in the same caliber.
One will be your wifes, so you won't own to of the exact same. Right?I will admit however that it seems like a bit of a waste to me to own 2 of the exact same fire arm.
True. NO handgun, I repeat, NO handgun is a reliable stopper, much less a "one shot" stopper. Shot placement and number of hits are the deciding factors. Any caliber on your belt is better than a "big, honking .45" sitting on the dresser because it's too big-too heavy-uncomfortable to carry/shoot, etc. A "stopper" shot happens for two reasons: 1. The BG is too injured to continue. 2. The BG is afraid of being shot again.Don't give in to the caliber wars. It's all hype!
Kahr CW45 or P45 or T45. All are lightweight to satisfy your back, all are very thin and concealable and they come to you for a moderate price, as low as about $425.Any suggestions for my dilema?
Well said. You are better off with a smaller caliber which you can shoot comfortably and accurately than with a larger caliber which you have to "spray and pray".Choose the firearm and caliber that fits you the best, and stop over thinking a given cartridge's superiority, which is usually based only on anecdotal reports anyway.
That's what Corbon claims for their DPX - a petal effect rather than a mushroom. Penetrates better - 16" for the 115 gr. 9mm.New designs in 9mm do not plug when passing through heavy clothing and the penetration is almost always right on where you want it to be to reach vital areas during a shoot.
