It would make you wonder how the rest of the world is happy with the 9mm. There is a world outside the united states. Maybe the police in the USA are right and the rest of the world is wrong.
And my response to that is another quote:
9mm Luger: Wildly popular all over the world... Mostly in countries where people don't carry guns, and cops don't actually have to shoot people with theirs.
That last quote was written in jest, but there is more than a grain of truth behind it. Regardless of what the ballistic gelatin or the calculations may say, stuff tends to die faster and with better reliability when you knock a bigger hole in it.

Personally I'd carry a 1911 .45 or a Glock 22 in .40 if I were a cop. The .40 is thrown in simply because it has a much better capacity than the 1911 and I think its a fairly decent compromise between 9mm and .45.
