    Ohhh what the heck, I'll bite... I'm a big fan of the .40S&W. I find it really fun to shoot and having 9mm capacity with a bigger bullet is a plus, IMO.

    It depends. Do you shoot it better than the others? That is by far the most important factor.

    Why not go with the 357magnum ??? More bite then the 9mm or 45acp. Its proven caliber also just like the 9mm and 45acp.

    That would have been my answer, too. He specified between 9mm and .45 caliber and the Sig isn't between those, it is one.

    This is supposed to be about Glocks, I thought. Glock doesn't make a .357magnum.

    I will admit the Glock has more rounds but which was has a bigger fear factor. Psychologically which one is more intimidating looks and sound wise. There are so many variables to a SD situation its kinda crazy trying to boil it down to is caliber X fits here. I am tired and its been a long day so if this post dont make since sorry.

    I thought it was much broader and more general question then just Glocks. Why limit ones self to just Glocks when there are many different calibers out there. Yes I am aware this was posted in General Glocking I was not at first. I still stand behind 357mangum thought as my choice.

    I love my 45acp..but I think the best "compromise" is modern +P+ 9mm ammo. That way, you get power as well as capacity.
