Re: School me on a new carry gun
With todays self defense ammo 147 grain 9mill will perform with any .45 or 40. and with 9 mill you will carry more rounds, and have easier follow up shots, cheaper ammo to train with. Having owned and shot single stack .45s, (no longer own them), getting quick follow shots on a small frame 45, is something thats hard to master. Having taken handgun courses specifically for self defense, i find it interesting that the majority of instructors, ex-special forces mainly carry glock 19s, 17s, and m and p pros. Not trying to push my opinion on anyone, but coolness factor of a .45 is nice, but IMO in a self defense situation its not about whats cool its about what will get you back home alive. Id rather have more ammo on hand and not need it than not enough.
