A pistol to carry choice


#1

So when faced with a choice of caring a pistol that holds 15 rounds of 9mm+p+, or a pistol that holds only 12 rounds of 45+p?
What would you choose

  • 12 rounds at 600 ft lbs of energy.
  • 15 rounds at 500 ft lbs of energy.

9mm because less recoil, less weight.


#3

Good point!


#4

I train more with my edc which is a 9mm. If both where on a table to chose, I’d pick up the 9. 2 wks ago I went to the range with my 1911 45acp I can still put them on target but not as fast.


#5

Good reason. That is very true about reacquire the target quicker with the 9mm.


#6

45, cuz I want’em to die the 1st time I shoot’em…


#7

Tough choice. It’s almost 50/50 for me. I like more rounds but I also like .45 holes. Honestly I would be good either way.


#8

Well you got to vote for one or the other. Flip a coin if you can’t decide.


#9

Carry the 124gr +P more, but 10mm shoulder rig for winter with UnderWood DE loads. I have no clue what the metrics are on the Colt DE + UnderWood; fun.


#10

I did vote. By default 15rds 9mm +P+. :cowboy_hat_face:


#11

Funny, speaking of this topic. I just bought 3 boxes of this today for my Canik. 18rds of this is no joke either.


#12

.45 because I’m old and the .45 is an American round.


#13

Wow nice.


#14

$15 a box of 25. Not bad.


#15

That is true and very relevant!


#16

It looks like the 45 guys are starting to wake up.


#17

GET OFF MY LAWN! You’re making me miss Matlock


#18

I like the .45 with a 9 mm back up


#19

Ha! Wild card!!

Interesting rear sight and slide. Can you explain the attributes for me?
