All pistol rounds suck.
I did like one thing from the article:
All other things being equal, the bigger the bullet the better
The problem with that caveat is that nothing else is equal. No other “big boy” caliber handgun will carry as many rounds as a comparably sized 9mm and none of them are as easy to shoot as a 9mm.
Because the “all things being equal” line comes up all the time, but rarely does it follow up with the reality that everything else isn’t equal. So when you put it all together, it’s really hard to make the case for anything other than 9.
Now can we move on and talk about more important matters?
