Thread: 9 mil handgun for self protection?

    9 mil handgun for self protection?

    I've long gone with just a .22 handgun for self protection. It seems like enough, but I wonder if I might be better off going with something like a 9 mil. I've never felt I needed super power like a .45. Seems like overkill, plus I'd bet the kickback would make it harder to aim a followup shot. Do any of you guys use 9 mil for self protection. If so, what are you impressions?

    From the little information I have, I'd say you're toast no matter what you carry. Best of luck.

    .45 is entirely manageable.
