I carry a .357, so that means I have to go 9mm, right?
In all seriousness, I think 9mm got a bad rap when people had stats based of NATO ball ammo. That gave rise to the .40 after the 10mm was pronounced too much for some shooters.
when I have an auto, I actually carry a .45. I shoot better with it.
