In reference to one of my father’s videos at:
I can shoot my Glock 22 (.40 S&W) pretty good but I can shoot a 17 (9mm) much better. Is there an advantage for having a Glock 22 for self defence or is 17 just as good? I see your father carries .45 ACP. Are you a bigger the better kind of guy or are you more accurate with .45?
My father is definately a bigger-is-better kind of guy, as you pointed out. I am more practical. What counts in a gun fight is hits, not how big the holes are. My father also happens to have grown up on .45 ACP and prefers it because he shoots it better. Many, many people shoot 9mm better. There really is no explanation for why one shoots one caliber better than another, but you must honor it. My perspective is carry what you shoot best. I happen to carry a Glock 23 in .40 S&W. There is great ammo for all calibers. Find one that shoots perfectly in your gun. Check out some shadetree ammo comparison here.
Hope this helps,
