Each and every day, more people throughout the country are getting their concealed carry permit. You want to load your handgun with the best hollow-point bullets that you can find in today’s scarce ammo market. That if you ever have to use it, you will have the best chance at stopping the threat. I personally recommend and prefer the 9mm for numerous reasons. It’s cheaper to train with, better recoil management, faster follow up shots, holds more rounds, great for first time shooters, for shooters of a wide age group, and the growing women audience. Premium 9mm thermal ballistics can match and exceeds some .40 and .45 calibers in some cases. 9mm has been around for over a century, it came a long way, improvements have been made. Using today’s premium rounds which will be discuss later in this article, there isn’t much difference in wounding between the 3 major handgun calibers. All three are great and will get the job done, the choice is yours.
