      .45 ACP.

      Used in every war since Teddy was a Rough Rider!

      but I would rather have a .22 than an empty hand.

          .45ACP without a doubt. Tough to beat that big, slow, hard hitting 230 grain Mack Truck!

              .45 is best, but .40 is a damn fine caliber as awell, best compromise IMO..plus you can stuff alot of em in a magazine too..

                I guess I'll buck the trend and choose "E" none of the above. My favorite handgun caliber would have to be the 357 magnun.

                  I'm a big fan of the .45, mostly because I like the way it shoots. It's a real smooth action, not like the fast break I get from a 9mm or .40

                  That said, if you pump a guy full of 9mm hollow points or .45 hollow points, you cannot tell one hole from another based solely on terminal ballistics. Not a statement I can back up, but I trust the source.

                    Well, having shot one guy with a 9mm, and having seen another shot with a 45 (both with duty HP rounds), I disagree with you......

                    9mm left a dinky little hole....45 left a rather larger one....

                      +100.

                      Haven't run into a louder full-house (+P) round to this day.

                      I do like .40 and .45 though, too..... just not as much as the .357Mag.

                        I bought a Sig P250 in 9mm just so I could later convert it to .40 S&W and .45 ACP. I guess this means I really prefer my handguns' caliber to be .40 and up!

                            Great posts guys. I personally voted for the 45acp but I am comfortable carrying any of those calibers. =Side note I almost made an impulse purchase today at the gun store......Glock 21SF what a sweet gun. LE price where I buy is $464 , not bad for the 13+1 45acp.

                              Not that the 9mm did the guy any GOOD I just prefer the bigger round.
