A warm 9 midweight will handle just about anything that I'm likely to get into it with.
A good 9mm load will be a great SD round, no question about it. If I was using a 9mm I would probably use a 124gr +p or +p+.
I like the 357, but there is nothing wrong with the 9mm. In fact, the 9mm has some advantages: additional rounds in the mag, cheaper range shooting, less recoil, less wear on pistols, etc.
I prefer the 357, but I would never get down on the selection of a 9mm. But I do feel to call them the same isn't accurate, as stated in the post I quoted. Different options are wonderful, long live the 9mm, .40S&W, 357sig, .45 gap, .45acp, 10mm, etc!!!!
How's that for diplomacy and peace makin'?
