Been thinking tonight (no comments please :smile about the hi power or 9mm. I've tried to read a lot from the so called experts re: ammo. Seems the general consensus is that heavy and slow is better than light and fast. Don't know if I agree, but that is a personal preference. I have seen posts on other websites re: hi powers that are customized for different people, and they are from professions that would be concerned about firepower and stopping power. Special Forces, SWAT, and general branches of the military comment that the hi power is a great weapon. Is it the weapon or the caliber or both? Maybe the question that I am trying to ask is a 9mm enough weapon for people? I have a few and I like it. Can't say that I can shoot my 45 and 40 as quickly and accurately as the 9. Not trying to start a 9 vs 45 debate, but looking for opinions re: the caliber/weapon. Hope I'm not rambling too much. It's late, and I am waiting for this damn server to finish building. Have a good one.
