9mm because less recoil, less weight.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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