9mm or .45 ACP – One Perspective

9mm or .45 ACP, that is the question. You are going to get a lot of arguments for one or the other. The reasoning might be stopping 9mm or .45 acppower, overpenetration, underpenetration,  or magazine capacity.


How about another argument – controllability. What I am talking about is getting your front sight back on target after taking a shot.  It is a lot easier with a 9mm than a .45.

Now I am sure a lot of you will say that you have no problem with your .45.  Unless you are practicing under real-life conditions you probably haven’t noticed a problem.

Check out the video below by Colin Noir which demonstrates the issue.
