    Which are the better rounds??

    Which are better...the early century rounds - .45 ACP and 9mm... or the late century rounds - .357 sig and 10mm ( ok...ok.. I left the .40 out cause I hate it! ) I think the late century technology is better ( if not cheaper and more prevalant )

    U are just determined to bring the caliber wars to our website, huh

    Shot placement is what counts, and 9mm and 45 are fine - I also prefer 9mm because I can afford to shoot more often. If cost was not a factor, I'd shoot more 45. Those two rounds are fine for me, and have withstood the test of time.

    SW summed it up pretty well. 9 and 45 do it just fine for me.

    I am a diehard .45 fan. With the exceptions of the DE and .22 pistols, everything I plan to buy will be a .45. If it's not offered in a .45, I ain't buying.

    Just my .02.

    Little different twist on the caliber war.........


    I've never seen the point in the 357 Sig and 10mm personally. Just my opinion.

    They all suck about the same to function in weak actions.

    I didn't vote. I think there's little practical difference between any of them, except the 10mm in its hotter guise. Then it's okay as an outdoorsman's gun, though still inferior to .44 Magnum.

    I do think we have too many overlapping calibers in both pistols and rifles, and innovate for innovation's sake, rather than for practical purposes. There's precious little that can be done with a .40 S&W, a .357 SIG, or a .45 GAP that hasn't been done with a .45 ACP, a .38 Super, or a 9mm.

    Well then I guess that ends this debate. I agree completely. When ever you can shoot something and it:

    A: Makes a big mess
    B: Makes a big BOOM!
    C: Scars the hell out of the person next to you
    D: Makes your wife roll her eyes
    E: Makes you laugh like you did when you were ten years old after you super
    glued your little brothers fingers together.


    It is considered a success.

    No cal. wars here I'm right that ends it. It is great to be a majority of 1

    No warring please!! I've had enough of that elsewhere. Everybody has their favorites - variety is the spice of life. I just wonder that if the situation were reversed... say the Sig and 10mm had a 100 year headstart, would people vote the other way. I think a lot of it is just loyalty and the 9mm and .45 have had more time to build that. (but I'd still take a 357 sig over a 9 any day!! )

    I disagree Shipwreck. I think the .22 short is the best defensive round.
