Dear Mas, How would the best +P and +P+ 9mm rounds out of say a Glock 19 or 17 compare with the best .357 Magnum rounds out of a 2" Snub Revolver not only for self-defense as well as a emergency survival/hunting weapon? In regards to being a survival/hunting weapon... neither gun is of course really designed for such use in mind or by far an ideal choice, but it seems either is capable of accomplishing such unusual tasks if the shooter is as well. I was reading an old article by Bart Skelton (May 2009 Guns and Ammo) which told the story of a friend (Police Officer Rudy Mauldin) who actually went hunting Black Bear in New Mexico with a S&W model 60! Bart thought he was joking at first and offered him his 44 Mag, but his friend declined choosing to stick with the 60 and did in fact bring back a 300 lb Blackie taken with one shot from the 60 and had supposedly done the same many times in the past. The late Stephen Camp also took Whitetail Deer with 9mm's http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/9mm vs 45.htm Thank you for your time.
