    I get the distinct impression you like to hear yourself talk

    My oponion is that 9mm edges out other rounds due to it's small size, cheap cost, low inherent recoil, all rooted in facts.

    For the past few months, I've been carrying my .45 1911, so don't even try that "oh your way must be the only way" bs.

    Because all I've done is point out the obvious. If that enrages you, or causes you to tell me your life story in essay form, thats not on me.



    Carry what you want, but you aren't achieving some mystical ballistic nirvana by shooting .40 or .45, or 9mm and it takes like 15 seconds of objective analysis why 9mm is still around, and why it's still so popular.

    But go ahead and argue about capacity or recoil. lol

    zackmars,

    Well, at least I have over 2 decades of practical experience "in the field" as a LEO & careerist in the USA (mostly OCONUS). Otoh, you, based on your own posts, have exactly NONE.
    (All you seem to "know" is what you read in some book/article & repeated here.)

    As I said earlier, practical experience ALWAYS trumps reading a book/article/treatise on the subject and/or reading THEORY about the subject, written by an author who has little or no actual close combat experience. = The VAST majority of FBI agents have little or NONE of actual experience in GUNFIGHTS at all..

    yours, satx

    Yet every time you post a nugget of info (unlike your last two posts) they are buried under a bunch of unrealated nonsense, or are so illogical even a 5th grader could spend all day pointing out flaws.

    Go ahead and tell me again how some unstated gold saber load is superior to an unknown 9mm load again, lol.

    BMF500,

    Everything in our driveway are either M-B or FOMOCO products & mostly over 25YO.
    (My latest TREASURE is a one-owner 1992 Lincoln Town Car with 69,000 original miles, which will wear 1992 TX plates.)

    yours, satx

    So if 9 is better why do you carry a 45?

    zackmars,

    FYI, you are being "made sport of" & are being laughed AT "behind your back" for your arrogantly ignorant, fact-free & mostly SILLY posts about "theory".
    Unlike those members, I'll tell you "to your face" that you are a POSEUR & a "knows nothing" but little more than that.

    I suggest that you EXIT this thread, after telling everyone that you are sorry for your impolite & fact-free comments.

    yours, satx
