.45 ACP

This funny and remarkably accurate motivational poster was emailed to me by Dr. Ray who added in his email, "I love this poster!"  Me too Dr. Ray, and it pretty well sums up the two different calibers as far as I'm concerned. 
















Sure the 9mm round can still kill a person, but so can a fuckin' BB gun. That doesn't mean I would bring a BB gun to a gunfight...

Can't really say I'd go looking for a gunfight, period. However, I do believe that if things really turn to shit, that anyone pooh-poohing NATO ammunition is prolly a few shrimp short of a fisherman's platter.

In the bigger picture, Sgt. Nappy's DHS is a pissant gang of kids compared to the PLA we borrow our debt spending from.

Just sayin'

I just invested in a 45, had one years ago, went to a 40 Glock, but nothing feels as safe in my palm as a 45......;)

The 45 will kill what needs killing with out over penetration. Years ago I heard a lecture from a guy who gave lectures on firearms for a living to people who made a living with firearms, namely, cops. He told of starting a lecture once where he remocve his jacket, and some guy down front quipped, "Look, a dianosaur" at his 1911. He proceeded to pop up a few slides full of facts. seems his department had 6 DGUs the previous year, threee each with 45 and 9mm. All the 45 were single shot stopps, all the 9mm were multi shot stops. The city got sued by the families of all three nine supressions. They won, but it cost em. The 45? well, happy dirt nap for em all.
