Price of a 40 and 45 round is also the same. And they only make 1 beretta in 40 which my friend owns, not feeling it.  I want it to look cute also.

Believe what you want, but first hand accounts from shooting people with a 9mm and shooting people with a .45 say otherwise. Wound channels are completely different between the two, not to mention the energy of the round.

Now a 9mm +P+ round will compare in energy to a basic .45, but that's not an apples to apples comparison.

Don't take that as me advocating for the 9mm as that's not the case. I'm just simply stating that a quality 9mm round with proper shot placement (as that's the real key) should be sufficient. I don't think one caliber is better than another because in the end it all comes down to how well you shoot it.

Gotcha!

I agree that a 9mm is sufficient for defense with the right ammo. My subcompact is a 9 and I don't trust anything smaller.

I also think 9mm is a better target/fun/comp round due to the lower recoil and flatter trajectory.

But given the option in a full size pistol... .45 without a doubt.

All this talk about 9mm.. Going to buy a glock 19 or 17 but not sure. Pretty much only going to be used for pistol class since I don't want to feed my 1911's

I'll probably pick up a 9mm comp gun one day. Not sure what though...

And I liked my old XD45, but the trigger was a bit mushy. Overall a great gun and stupidly reliable.

I personally wouldn't CC a striker fired gun without a safety but that's just me.

I didn't like mine at first but it's grown on me. The trigger sucks but I enjoy shooting it now.

Why not just fit a 9mm slide/barrel on the 1911 you usually shoot? The grip angle and lack of similar controls isn't going to help with training.

Its going to be cheaper than a new gun, you won't have a ten day wait, you hate Glocks and while somewhat blasphemous (9mm 1911) you can shoot the 1911's more.
