I carry the Glock 17 everyday..... some of my friends make fun of me due to it's a 9mm. Well let me tell you what I have been doing. I have been practicing at the range, what I have been doing is two shot groups, you know... Bang, bang. My friends all carry .45's, I have a .45acp but I really like the performance of the 9mm. I use the 124 gr. Gold Dot. I figure if I shot Two shots groups at a 124gr. at a pop thats 248gr. into the wound area, thats better that a single .45 at 230gr. .............RIGHT???? Todays 9mm ammo is alot better than yesterdays 9mm ammo. I don't feel under gunned at all. Is anyone else feel this way??
