One of the main reasons why military personnel and many LEOs made the switch to 9mm handguns was because of the deeper bullet penetration. A former police ofﬁcer and serviceman with the U.S. Army, Richard A. Mann is one of the most well-respected ﬁrearms authorities writing on the subject today.
The 9mm will not. As will pretty much anything under #4 buckshot.
The FBI agrees that the 9mm has lifesaving features. Unfortunately, this benefit may be completely canceled out in some states due to magazine restrictions, so it’s a good idea to review any state and local laws before buying a 9mm if you’re set on having a 15+1 capacity gun. I'm pretty sure the .50 AE can kill the soul. That means 2-3 hits per mag in 9mm vs 1-2 hits in .45 ACP. Point and shoot, only need to hit my target once...then they're down. This negates the added magazine capacity advantage of the 9mm. I agree with you completely,I like and have both -a DW Guardian in .45 and a sig p365 9mm for carry.The choice on which to carry depends upon where I am carrying and why for that day.I believe the ability to have both options covers more scenarios.Great info BTW. The FBI employs some smart people. Most people I know use hollow points as they tend to have less penetration through walls and the human body but leave aone nasty show stopping wound... What is a "safer" 9mm ammo for home protection, one with similar (or if possible less) penetration risk vs. the average .45 ammo? The results are as follows: .380 ACP (217 ft.

I don’t understand why a situation in a street would be different than at home.
I do just like the author says. Wouldn't that make the.45 leap farther ahead again, in terms of "better"? More misinformation about the 9mm vs 45. The 9mm has too spotty a reputation for me to trust as my normal carry caliber. The reality is that 30% is on the high side.
