    Which would you have to procure and rely on? 9mm hollow points, or 45acp full metal jacket?

    I reload and shoot both calibers. Nothing scientific, but I like the bigger hole created by 230gn round nose.

    Bacon. Bacon is always the correct answer. If not it is always 45

    I seriously think The Walking Dead or The Road type economic collapse is a lil far fetched. No ones running through tubs of ammo. If one is constantly getting into firefights, they're doing it wrong and wont last very long to even be worried about ammo inventory.

    9mm or 45acp? Matters none. I trust the SME's who do this for a living. There are no advantages to 45acp over 9mm.

    Agree and that’s kind of why I think the ammo capacity of 9mm is a bit of a mute point, unless you’re a pro/SME.

    I figure I would just find a case of .45 ACP Hollowpoints and a case of canned bacon. Or Vienna Sausages. Gotta love those slimey lil suckers

    The solution is to have a viable qty of defensive ammo on hand. I really can't imagine any scenario where I would ever deplete 1000 rounds of defensive handgun ammo.

    WHY is that one cannot find a case (or a can) of reasonably priced canned bacon anymore? Pop, a penultimate cold warrior, used to keep a few cans of the Dak brand around. I haven't seen it in years, but even then it was kind of expensive.

    I'll go with a bigger hole and more penetration.

    Wait, what thread is this?
