That's one caliber that I have consistently avoided.

I guess modern ballistics testing has confirmed that there isn't much difference between 9mm, .40, and .45. I've also read 9mm actually has better penetration.

If I need penetration I will take the Tokarev along. Carry is 9 or .380.

I have been eyeballing the .357 Sig as another to add.
That is a bad little round the .357 Sig. It's our duty ammo.

That plus more rounds and less recoil making follow up shots easier.

Make sure you check out the price of the ammo first and are comfortable with that cost; it's pricey stuff.

Relative to the .40, I was solely into rifles at first and accumulated too many different calibers so when I finally got into handguns, I decided right from the start to keep things simple. All our handguns are 9mm or .22 for semi-autos and all our revolvers are .38/.357 mag.

Good refresher though. I had forgotten a lot of how it originated.

Bullet design has changed alot in the last 25 years. Still waiting to hear from the guy that started this thread.

Hear back about what :confused:
I just made the jump to the 10mm and it at least to me is a lot more violent than the Beretta FS 9mm and .45 Wilson Combat 1911 I've been shooting , plus it has more ME than the .45 and @ 1600+fps almost twice the velocity with 135 gr HP loads

I don't remember what the original Norma ammo for the 10mm was rated at in the 80's. I have a couple of cases left so I chronographed some the other day. Out of my Glock it went 1485-1510fps., my Bren 10fps faster. That's with a 170gr bullet! Good stuff back then.
