That cartoon is worth a thousand words. 10mm is king.
2 Great Guns
I bought the Glock 21 first and fell in love. I then bought the Glock 20 and never looked back. I use doubletap ammo in both and have 6 inch barrels on both. But a handgun is my last defense. I know the particulars on the ammo I use 10mm 200gr wfngc hardcast and 45acp 230 gr jhp, yet for wild animals I stick with my Savage 308 Tactical. I grew up learning an old saying that I truely believe in. "If you keep putting that ol hot lead on them, then they gonna go down." I love both of my handguns, but prefer the Glock 21 as my first choice. It's a man stopper. What a person who owns a gun needs to learn is to hit what you are shooting at. That means practce. I shoot the ammo I carry. That may be more expensive, but I know what they sound like, how they feel in my hand, and how they react when I pull the trigger, Oh I do have a Para Ordinance P14/45 Limited 5 inch as a BUG. So I would suggest going to the range, check out the 45 and 10 and test what works for you. For me I carry 185gr 45acp doubletap on the streets, and 230 gr doubletap jhp in the woods. That's because some critters are scarier than others .
Ok, it's settled then.
Now this thread can rest for another couple years.
I think .45 acp has an advantage over 10mm in terms of overpenetration in home defense.
This thread is almost 10 years old. Resurrecting this thread won't bring you back 10 years younger.
Yeah, and like a booger on your fingertip, some things are just hard to let go of.
I read this and went out and bought a 10mm and a .45acp...duct taped them together (3M brand for added adhesion and strength) and now have an awesome side by side. problem solved
And with each shot (shots?) you get FDTOE. Fastest Double Tap On Earth.
