"With the .40 mm out there now I don't know why the average Joe would need something else. The 9mm is more powerful, but the .40 has less recoil and very user friendly. Obviously some people prefer the more powerful gun and that is their choice... I just mean the person who has a gun in their house for that "just incase senario"


"The .45 is an insane weapon, you can hit someone anywhere with that and they are going to get knocked down. "

Thats not a true statement. Buddy of mine was in a shootout and shot the perp 5 times with a Glock .45 before he went down.

I guess I have been missing out on the awesome power of the 9.

Is this the beginning of another endless argument: which is more powerful, the 40 or 9?

I'd like a "40mm" gun!!!!!

That was ".40 mm", which is 0.01574803 caliber.

A micro-mouse gun!

No, just stupid. Why do people talk about things they know nothing about. What's worse is that they say stupid crap with such conviction that other people who don't know believe them. If you don't know what you're talking about just say I don't know.

You know, that's why I come here. Not to cut down on other boards, I obviously don't run them, but you guys always seem the get it right. That's what I like about hanging out here. With so many different opinions, and honest answers, I don't know of another board where I can get such a broad range of logical, accurate information. LEO's and AJ's (I'll through my own euphemism in: Average Joes) together to serve my best interest when it comes to being informed.

Thanks fellas. Oh, and ladies.

Regards,
Eric

speaking of gaming type boards, you wouldn't believe the amazingly ignorant stuff that is posted on those, I regularly end up linking to these boards to end some stupid arguments. I gotta agree with what was said above, I don't post much here, but I am a dedicated reader, because whatever the question, this is the solid place to find a correct answer

"The .45 is an insane weapon, you can hit someone anywhere with that and they are going to get knocked down. "

Absolutely true. I tested it on a perp before I cuffed him. And then in a different location and than at central booking. Hit someone with a good steel .45 and he will go down. I really don't know if it's the caliber or more in the way you swing the weapon.her

You can hear things like that, and worse, just by hanging around some gun shops. While I'm browsing, looking, holding, etc. I keep my ears open for such little nuggets of wisdom. And the gun shows are pretty bad too. Me and a buddy have left several places giggling like school girls after hearing stupid stuff like that.
