    That was a good article. Personally, I enjoy shooting a .45, it is just fun. For carry--all 9mm. I started out carrying .40 but after getting my first 9mm I was able to better control follow up shots in a faster manner. 9mm Magazine capacity is better to boot.

    A little off topic...

    What I love is that when I'm dating a lady and she's a shooter, nine times out of ten she's got a .380.

    When I let her shoot my Glock 17, and she finds out it's easier to shoot than her pocket .380, and the ammo is cheaper and more powerful, I'm always amused at how fast that .380 ends up for sale so she can purchase a 9mm Glock.

    One thing I'd have to say though: when I shot IDPA with a .45 caliber 1911 I always scored better than with a 9mm Glock. The reason: trigger. It's hard to beat the 1911 single action trigger, but that's the only thing that I prefer on a 1911 versus a Glock.

    What I gather from this is that people named Rob are wrong. People named Paul and Bill are right.

    Interesting to see perspectives from people who shoot both for once.

    Not trying to step out of bounds with reviving an old thread, but this was a good article, and I agreed with it 100%. I was just having this 9v45 debate with a buddy.. and had sort of felt like it had been put to bed a few years ago. I’m actually a fan of ‘use what you like, what works for you‘. I hate when some folks get super condescending about their preferences, if you have differing opinions. ..but the 9mm is better. . He he

    This. I carried a compact .45 for 20 years. 7 in the gun, 6 in the spare mag. Thought I had it covered; until I really considered the situation -- what if you have a Luby's Cafeteria, mass shooter, or gang situation? You can get to slide lock in three seconds.

    Now I shoot my full size .45 1911s at the range. Good fun. I like the history, the feel of John Browning's steel.

    But on the street, it's an M&P9.
