A picture is worth a thousand words....!
Or at least "45" words...
There is something to say about looking down at the barrel of a 45 and going
I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of either....
10mm and 40 S&w are better than both
I carry 380, 9mm, 40 cal, 45 cal and 357 sig.I think all are good carry calibers.
Carry what you shoot accurately. One handed and on the move as well as stationary.
sadly enough I dont recognize those pistols who makes them ?
I like .45 AARP. When I retire in a decade or so, I’m going to use my first Social Security check to get a 1911...just in case those pesky Germans or Japanese try another sneak attack!
The age old debate which is better 9mm or 45acp. Just like opening up a thread which is the best gun cleaner/lube. Pretty much what ever works for you.
They are both my Springfield Armory's XD's models. Obviously, bottom a 9mm top a 45acp.
S.A. does'nt make the XD's with this grip texture any more. Now it is a sandpaper type grip. They are both excellent shooters and tuff as a horseshoe. You can still find this particular grip if ya look around.
It’s easy 45 super

Well, you can get a round that has the best feature of both, and minimizes the problems of both, and go with .40.
No mag limit: Glock 19 > Glock 30SF
Mag limit: Glock 30SF > Glock 19 with stupid arbitrary 10 round mag
1911: 10mm > 45 acp > 9mm
Reality no mag limit: Glock 20SF > Glock 21SF > Glock 22 > Glock 23/32 > Glock 19
When the target subject is man, capacity beats caliber all day, every day.
I'm an accomplished handgunner. I just got back in from shooting full power 10mm and 9mm. Anyone that says they can shoot at speed as accurate (substitute the 10mm for .40 or 9mm SIG) as the 9mm is a liar.
Between these two only, I would go 45 auto. As far as magazine capacity, the FNX 45 is 15+1 and Springfield XD is 13+1. Between these two makes, the Springfield XD, the one I have, is rated to handle the 45 Super.
Living "out in the boondocks, my requirements are a bit different than most. This time of year I'm comfortable carrying a G17; however, when Arizona "cold" season arrives, I change to a heavier caliber, think 357mag or 10mm. I'm not worried about black bears or mountain lions, have seen both on the property, but feral hogs are another matter. Since 10mm/200gr WFN is not part of this discussion, I would go with a thicker .45auto brass casing, also known as the .45 Super. Here I would be comfortable with the 255gr, flat nose hard cast bullet for use against feral hogs, in Alaska, this .45 Super load is gaining favor in Alaska for defense against large bruins.
I don't think the .45Super is a CQB caliber in other bullet weights, for that, the 45auto is very capable, especially with Ranger T 230gr +P ammunition.
I guess I'm a liar then, I can shoot 10mm out of a 1911 faster than +P out of a G17, probably because I began shooting 1911s 50 years ago...can't beat the reset of 1911 triggers. The 10mm takes more strength to control, but, using a magnum hand grip makes the caliber more controllable. Double Tap's 125gr Barnes all copper JHP has a relatively light recoil from a 1911, and its effects are devastating. This round is knocking on 1600fsp MV.
