    I saw that on TV a few years back and it always sticks in my head every time somebody says 9mm is weak.

    Seems a lot of .45 sack riders think anything less can't even penetrate skin.

    Holy shit....




    But back to the point,
    There is nothing wrong with the 9mm as long as your target isn't a crazy Filipino hopped up on opium. That being said, I'm still going to carry .40 SW because I'm not as good of a shot as a Navy SEAL.

    yeah, that's the point I think. I love my 1911, but my primary go to SD gun is a Glock 17, because it's a proven pistol, I'm proficient with it and can pull off a mozambique with it.

    But I believe anyone that's considering getting a gun for SD should have proper training, as well as mental preparedness to prepare themselves for that scenario.

    I've seen way to many overconfident people that believe just because they are strong enough to rack a slide and can hit a static target from 10 yards, and can recite a few gun specs is prepared for a SD situation.

    I see a few new shooters come up to the line in IDPA, and then fumble the draw, arms and hands trembling and touch off two quick shots at the target and when the smoke clears the target is completely untouched. Has no understanding of "cover" or how to "shoot on the move". And then gets frustrated when we yell commands at them. They aren't prepared for stressful situation, and guess what, that's exactly what a SD senario is.

    When the SHTF, they revert to how they trained which is a fatal error because they train shooting static at static targets. In real world situation, they'd become another statistic gun or no gun, 9 or 45.

    cliffs/point: Doesn't matter if you have a .50 or a .22. If you lack the most important aspect (training), you're just as dead as an unarmed man and could make matters worst. The caliber of the gun is irrelevent compared to the caliber of the man holding the gun.
