Caliber wars - fun. Anyway, from the presentations I've heard - it seems that we can't find truly significant and large effect sizes that favor one of the modern 9s, 40s, or 45s over the rest.
That seems a reasonable conclusion that you choose one of the three you shoot well, like the gun, is affordable, etc.
I like my 9 and 45. They go boom on demand.
For old folks - will a new wonder caliber be introduced before we reside in a urn next to the reloading bench or on the gun safe
