My XDM .45 begs to differ.
I can't run away anymore. So, if I'm going to stand my ground, it is not going to be with a peashooter....
Yeah, yeah, yeah... The 45ACP has little in common with the 10mm. The 45 is a big, slow moving slug. The 10mm is more comparable to the .357. Overpenetration from rounds like the 10mm is one of many reasons that law enforcement doesn't use it much anymore. Add to that recoil, muzzle blast and a 3.whatever inch barrel in a lightweight frame, it's a poor choice for people of average ability for CCW.
I love the 10mm, it goes BOOM! But, it'd be the last choice for me as far as ccw goes.
My memory is a bit foggy on this one, but isn't the 40S&W basically a shorty 10mm? I recall that it was developed for law enforcement before the 9mm advanced enough to meet the criteria of the FBI.
Nice! I used to be a 1911 guy but as I got older (I'm 72), I went to a 9 mm Glock 17.
For sure!The 9mm is all about the follow up shot. Too much recoil from the 10mm and the 40 is too expensive to practice with. Not to mention over travel of the 10mm. There are good reasons why the 9mm is the CCW caliber of choice. Oh, and BTW, the .45 is a much slower round.
I carry a .44 S&W around in the property or when flyfishing/hunting, but I’m not concerned about the targets you guys are thinking about. Be careful down there in the concrete jungle.
