    There's usually a "test" thread running in this forum somewhere ... right now, there are three of them visible on the Front Office main page.

    Or you could just use this thread, now that it's open!

    Thanx DJ. Guess I didn't look in the right place. Wanted to check changes in my sig and avatar.

    BTW, to be a bit nosey what is your thesis for the 9mm. I ask because I started with nine in the 80's an am thinking of converting my G 27 to a nine. Seems the Tecnology has changed it to a viable caliber these days. Being thrifty and getting away from reloading,
    I'm almost convinced 9mm is the way today.;)

    No problem; it's pretty simple, really.

    1 - All serious defensive handgun calibers are poor "stoppers". Ain't hardly a nickel's worth of difference between them.

    2 - Bullet placement is the one variable which most folks agree is of critical importance in defensive handgun use. If you miss, or hit a non-vital area, it doesn't matter what you are using; it won't work.

    3 - When speed and accuracy are taken together (see #1, above, for power concerns), I shoot the .45 fairly well, the .40/.357 nearly as well, and the 9mm superbly (by my own somewhat modest standards). I find this to be true for most honest (and honestly tested) folks, as well.

    4 - Add the icing (high capacity and cheap practice ammo to hone my "edge"), and it's a no-brainer (for me, at least). 9mm wins!

    Thanx DJ. Your reasoning makes sense to me. Just finished an article from the Ayoob files, last issue of American Handgunner, The Herald Square Incident that speaks to shot placement with a 124 gr. Speer Gold Dot +P. Even though I've never really bought into the one shot stop theory it shows clearly the threat was neutralized. Isn't that what self defense is all about?:)
