    Assuming you didn't have to worry about cost differential, what's your favorite pistol round for CCW/self-defense/general use?

    Both of my handguns are 9mm (G19 & G26). I'm thinking about getting a Glock 20SF (10mm) with .357 and .40 conversion barrels. 3 calibers in one gun FTW. Then all I'll need is a .45 and a .38/.357.

    .45 because it's easier to make it seem like my groupings are one big gigantic hole. :o

    Why would you need or want a handgun in every caliber?

    But to someone who just likes guns. :hsd:

    Why does Jay Leno need so many awesome cars? He should keep only the most sought after and highest performance cars in the collection. :nono:

    If platforms didn't matter, I might be tempted to say 10mm, but unless S&W comes out with a M&P10, the platform choices compel me to stick with 9mm.
