Which is best, 9mm or 45 ACP?

Sorry, I'm usually the peace maker - I just get a kick out of that question (and other caliber wars) whenever I see it on gun boards. I just sit back and scroll through the replies of the ex-spurts, as they spout their endless knowledge to us ignorant masses.

:roll:

Hey, Carl
Glad to see you're back from the inauguration! :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted:
My vote is with you, for the 45 Colt.
I prefer the old 'Long Colt' monicker, but some folks don't like that... :mrgreen:

PS...Sorry about that gag line...The Devil made me say it! :twisted:

I prefer the .45ACP with the .44 special as a backup. Or it can be the other way around.

OK...
Let's see...
Got it! :!:
The 9mm is very inexpensive and is a relatively 'clean' round at the range!
There...I feel all warm and 'inclusive' !
:lol:

If you'll check "The Prairie Traveler" written by US Army Captain Marcy in 1856, you'll learn that the Colt Army Model (44) is highly superior to the Colt Navy Model (36). Looks like this argument has been going on for a while. :-o

Certainly seems this thread got hi-jacked. Back to the original question. The 9mm is far better because the gun typically holds more rounds. The .45 ACP is strickly for old farts! I have 4 or 5 of them. :-o
