The Mother of All Debates: 9mm vs. .45 ACP [VIDEO]

Check out these experts as they discuss and demonstrate the pros and cons of the 9mm and .45 ACP. 

The perennial debate, will it ever end?

Gun enthusiasts, police, and military have argued the superiority of either the 9mm or .45 for decades. Watch these two experts shoot the .45 Springfield Armoury Range Officer 1911 against its 9mm brother, and discuss the benefits of each.

I’ve carried a 9mm pistol as a service weapon for much of my career, but when it came to buying my own pistol, I had to be part of the 1911 .45 ACP tradition. Now, I am still not sure which cartridge I favor.

The debate is sure to continue, but maybe there is a place for both the .45 ACP and 9mm in each gun enthusiast’s firearms safe. As they say, it all comes down to the right tool for the right job.
