    That's a nice carry gun. I carry a Glock 26. Knowing what I know now, I would have got the M&P9C. At the time, the M&P line had just come out, and they were just too new. Anyway- awesome choice, although I hope you never have to use it for it's intended purpose.

    after background check and taxes it was just over 600. i was gonna get the 40 but then did some research on hollow point energy transfer and found that a hollow point 9mm will transfer between 380 and 400 ft lbs and the 40 and 45 transfer 400 to 420. (this can change depending on powder and such, but in general). for the price of ammo in the 9mm vs the 40 or 45 i decided the 9mm was the best for me. but my next pistol will be a full size 1911.

    apparently most of the bad press about a 9mm came from the military having to use ball ammo and the slow moving bullets from the 45 do not penetrate through the person as much so they cause more damage. in the civilian market you can use hollow points and the difference IMO is nearly moot.




    and yes, i have been waiting to use moot for a long time

    GREAT!!

    happy birthday kid!

    i have a 9mm, and i just picked up a cannon by comparison in a .45. i own alot of 9mm ammo, and i will begin collecting .45.

    i agree, a proper bullet in 9mm is very effective. i just wanted a 45 to really deliver.
