    I don't think you can go wrong with any of those choices. Just shoot what suits you best.

    ^^ Considering one shot of .45 will tear a person's arm off or blow a leg off, yeah 14 rounds of .45 is definitely enough ;)

    ****, i heard one round of .45 will blow a guys chest out his back and throw him at least 40 foot back, even if you clip him in the arm. I'd go with 14x45 any day.

    Heck, I carry 9 rounds of .45...

    I'll go with the 14 .45ACP.

    Where's my calculator?

    Is this some kind of math problem? Calculate the total entry wound size?

    Being that civilian gun fights that go beyond 4 rounds fired are very rare, I'd just pick the one you shoot best and are the most confident with.

    I carry a S&W 5 shot 38 Special J frame everyday and don't feel underarmed. If needing 14 rounds of 45 (for example) was a realistic threat assessment of where I live/work/play, I'd be packing my bags and sending out resumes ;) !

    I'll opt for the .45 . . . 1 round worked on the occasions I needed it, but all would do . . . I carry 8 in the piece & 1 spare mag . . . reckon I'm in to accurate & effective fire, not total weight . . .

    i would go with the 9mm more ammo + a well placed shot = alot of ammo still left in the mag
