What's your preferred caliber?

This is a discussion on What's your preferred caliber? within the The Polling Place forums, part of the Use and Training category; I prefer the .45, no doubt, however 9mm gets my vote. Much cheaper to shoot often is really the only reason. I have no qualms ...

I have no qualms that 147gr. JHP 9mm will do the job very effectively. If really GIVEN a choice, I'd rather set on a hill with a rifle...or pop out of cover with a 12 gauge rather than a pistol. JMO, YMMV

9MM. Cheap and more than enough knockdown power. Especially with the 124 gr. +P.

I keep an adequate supply of ammo for each pistol caliber I own. After many years of shooting only 45 acp, I often carry an EMP 40 or XD40sc. My pair of M9 pistols are primarily used at the range.

For me top is 12ga but I perfer 9mm for handguns as the recoil is wasy enough for follow ups and can hold more than enough before I need a reload.

They did.

It was called the Omega.

I'm willing to bet the Custom Shop would build you one today.

It was not an XD, though...and a 10mm XD, well, it's...

(everyone together now)

Never.

Gonna.

Happen.
