Thread: 9mm or not?

  1. #14
    9's pack a lot of power. Did you ever shoot one? If you use the self protection ammo( ie hollow points) I can't imagine not feeling as safe with it as anything else out there. I think all 357's are revolvers and I don't like that action as well. A 40 isn't much different than a 9mm. If you want, get the clip that holds 15, about $80. Are you related to Dirty Harry? Thanks for the input.

    It's been said that a revolver is as good as a semi-auto. If you ever find that you need more than two or three shots to extricate yourself from a situation, then you are in real deep doo-doo. In face-to-face combat situations, the kind that most people anticipate [a one on one], experts say that mega fire power is "overkill" [no pun intended]. The articles I've read emphasize skill and accuracy more so than firepower.

    And as a side note, I don't see how this exactly fits in with hvac discussions, unless we are considering icing some unscrupulous hvac contractors???

    hmmmmmmm

    It fits in a general discussion forum and if you read all the posts from the beginning you would see that. there is enough technical talk in all the other forums, so i like to lighten this one up. You should see the post I had that Boss removed, it was great....

    I'd check with local P.D. some offer very good training
    and info that could save your life and keep tou out of
    jail.9mm. would not be first choice for me.Also check
    with N.R.A.,they are not the bad guys many make them out to be.

    why not a 9?

    9 is gun of choice for most policemen and service personel, they are very good and powerful as well. My Smith and Wesson is also one of the safer guns made, way better than a Glock. Check them out.

    Sorry about my spelling, but if your going to carry
    why waste the money on S&W. Berretta 92S, the only
    choice.

    Just ask the U.S. army.

    Cool

    I didn't see anyone mention it here but how about something a little less leathal....OC Pepper Spray. As a Former Law Enforcement Officer I had to experience it's effect during training on it and I'll tell you what.....It felt like someone poured gasoline on my face then lit the match!

    If and when my life is on the line, forget the pepper spray.
    Thats good in a fight or something but not a life threatening situation which is the only instance I would even consider lethal force.

    Hey, Dicemeister

    Your use of the term "lethal force" made me think of something....I only shoot paper, steel plates, clay targets, ractive targets, pepper poppers, etc. etc. All my training has been in target shooting. No training in use of lethal force, except training film in NRA firearms class. In the few situations where life and limb were subject to damage, I was shaking so badly that I wouldn't be able to handle a firearm...and I sincerely hope and pray that I never have to consider doing so!
