    Man what a... post.

    Nobody willingly goes into a fight with only a handgun, people who have to fight use rifles.

    We as civilians use hanguns because #1, rifles are too bulky, and too obvious
    #2, getting into combat isn't a constant threat in our day to day lives
    #3, when we do get into a fight, a pistol is quite often more than enough.

    That doesn't change the fact that handguns suck to fight with.

    What do you not get? This isn't rocket surgery.

    Back in the dark ages when I was behind the gun counter there were no 124 gr loads. It was all 115.

    My cost for 9mm and .45 ACP are so close that it takes a 1000 rounds to notice the real difference.

    Everything else being the same, does anyone really think a 9mm in 115 grains is any better or worse one in 124 grains?

    Of course. 115 bounces off of people and the 124 levels small buildings.

    So caliber really does trump “capacity, recoil, cost”!! Glad to see that you do understand that.
