I agree it's definitely something to think about when considering defense in a time is life situation. Thats the way i felt about the .40 snappy, where as the 45 while having more muzzle flip was more comfortable to shoot. That being said i can nowhere near empty a mag with my glock 21 as accurately and as fast as i can with my S&W 9mm. Just kind of have to balance both i guess and as always comes down to personal preference.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me."
