I assume you guys have seen this question before but I'd appreciate any advice. I sold all my .40's and .45's and am very happy to be the owner of two high quality 9mm pistols. I cant tell you how happy I am to consolidate, maybe it's due to my OCD. I'm just about done with my weapon prep for SHTF and I'm curious about stocking up on 500 rounds of 9mm FMJ or JHP? When I owned a .45 this decision was very easy, I would just go with the .45 FMJ... Not starting a caliber war it's just my personal opinion that a .45 FMJ is still a round that can deliver a hell of a punch and it's my belief that the 9mm FMJ is lacking a little. My aim with my weapon prep is not to have the hottest +p+ devastating load in my handgun. It's just to be able to stop a small game animal or hopefully a bigger threatening animal such as a dog or coyote and God forbid I run into bad guys but incase I do I would like to be able to end the fight quickly... (That's saying if the SHTF so bad in my area and America that I would have to use a firearm on another person. This is the absolute last thing I want to do, I pretty much plan on being invisible and running from as many threats as I can... but as I prep I am realizing that prepping and self defense go hand in hand so I'd like to be prepared) Thanks for your advice, and if you're wondering what my carry load is now and why don't I just stock up on that... it's because my carry load is Corbon DPX 115 grain, and that stuff is expensive. Whatever I decide it will be coming from SGammo.com, they seem to have the best prices on bulk ammo but their selection is limited. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
