Oh, good Lord. The nine isn't enough! The nine isn't enough!

You want some cheese with that wine?

People are killed by the "stopping power" of the lowly 9mm every single day. It's not my first choice, but it sure beats using a baseball bat.

Stopping the attacker from attacking you and/or your loved ones has more to do with shot placement than the caliber of the handgun. The cheap and accessible 9mm gives the owner the advantage of having more rounds in his handgun and having the opportunity to get more rounds into his attacker as opposed to an equal-sized .40 or .45 pistol.

It also gives the owner more financial freedom to practice with his/her weapon. Being familiar with your firearm, its tendencies and handling characteristics, and being able to properly deploy your weapon is way more important than caliber. If you can't shoot it correctly and accurately, what good is it?

The handgun is a tool. Nothing more, nothing less.
