It is quite entertaining at times to be in the company of those who know firearms. Everyone has an educated opinion and we type A personalities don’t tend to be tactful in how we represent our opinion. I’ve enjoyed listening to some truly great minds in the firearms field debate the pros and cons of the .45ACP versus the 9mm. In the past few years the debate has grown to include the .40S&W, the .357Sig and now the .45GAP. Being highly presumptuous and arrogant, I’m going to way in with my two cents worth on the pros and cons of the various calibers and loadings and offer my outlook on what I believe the best is.
