View Full Version : Why Wont "the 9mm Save Your Life"?

I keep getting emails from front sight or someplace. That keeps sending messeges that says "the 9mm Wont Save your life". Why do they claim this?

Its just an advertisement for close quarters training. I do not have any info on the ' system ' they teach though.

I think what they are saying is the "9 MM" or any other pistol, be it 38, 357, 40, or 45 will save your life, what they are saying is any pistol/revolver wont save your life unless you learn how to use it.

Frontsight is advertising, and any business does (or should do). They aren't saying anything about a given cal. they are saying, you need to learn to use what ever pistol cal. you have.

That's just my opinion.

Because they're trying to get you to click the link.

Here's the secret: no caliber, no firearm, and no combination of equipment will save your life. YOU save your life, using the tools you have.

I'm closing this because ... well, because the only real choices of where this thread will go from here include the very overused and boring "9mm vs .45" or the unacceptable "we hate Frontsight" gripe-fest.

Asked, answered, closed. No worries.
