browning 9mm high power peroid, end of discussion go away don't want to hear no more the gun aims itself. btw the best firearm for sel-defense is the one you have in your hand when you need it

The .45 ACP cartridge and .357 magnum hollow point are both proven man-stoppers. I don't shoot that often so for me a revolver is a better choice. Those who shoot often may prefer a semi-auto.

You want to p---s them off or put them down to stay, 9mm. NO. 45ACP cal. YES.
Even a .38 special hollow point is better than a nine.

When you grow up and become a big boy maybe your Daddy will allow you to carry a 1911.

The .45 is TWICE the round the 9mm is. Almost literally!

When You grow up, Watch what the SAS can do with a BP High Power, Even with 9mm FMJ's and as to that, In the civilian world where Hollow Points are go to ammo, There are multiple 9mm Hp, That out preform .45s

As for me, I carry a Browning HP in 40ty S&W, have done so for 20 years, It gives up nothing to the .45

Right on! I love my BHP. Made in Belgium in '77.

Recently, I have been getting a lot of complaints about the lack of diversity in my opinion column. The Feminazi Party has been complaining that I write about abortion too often. The Gaystapo has been complaining that I write about homosexuality too often. Atheists have been complaining that I write about God too often. College administrators have been complaining that I write about college administrators too often. I just can’t win. So, today, I’m going to dedicate my column to the topic of self-defense weapons just in case a lesbian feminist atheist college administrator goes off the deep end. I...
