    A double "thumbs up" to you for sharing this article with us.

    I'm paring down my arsenal to, mostly, 9mm firearms for many of the considerations enumerated in this article.

    These firearms have a permanent place in my arsenal:

    Taurus CT9 G2 9mm Carbine

    Taurus PT92 blued 9mm pistol

    Taurus PT92 Duo Tone 9mm pistol

    Taurus Millennium G2 PT111 9mm pistol

    9 sillymeter... no thanks!




    Kidding aside, other than having fun with it, I find the caliber wars to be useless. The biggest factor for me is; can you actually shoot (accurately) with what you carry? I carry rounds ranging from a .32acp to a .45 acp and feel fine with any of them. My prejudice against the 9mm is purely emotional and non scientific. I might buy a 9 sillymeter range toy one day, but I just wouldn't carry it if I had a choice! : D

    Using the above formula, then it's equal to my 8+1 1911, right?
