I have the Marlin Camp Carbines in 9MM and 45ACP. The former takes the magazines for my S&W M659, the latter magazines for the M1911, hence, you can have a long arm and sidearm taking the same cartridge and magazine. The 9MM has the advantage in velocity and penetration, especially with FMJ bullets, the 45ACP is pretty much the better manstopper. Recoil with both in a longarm is very mild. In a longarm both are 50 yard cartridges, 75 yards tops, maybe 100 yards in a pinch.
