    Ok, all these calibers.
    Let's throw in 22LR, 380, 38, 357, 44 mag too.

    Which one is the best?

    Answer None of them because your situational awareness sucks.

    In a SHTF situation.
    You didn't determine they were a threat at Rifle Range
    then failed at shot gun range,
    And now at handgun range you have determined that they are an issue.

    In a non-SHTF situation, you have allowed someone to become a threat by.
    Not avoiding them nor paying attention to your surroundings.

    Anyway, That being said, what is a handgun for?
    A defensive tool for punching holes in stuff.
    5,6,7,8,9,10, 15, 20 or more holes in them.

    If you are going to draw your weapon, The caliber YOU choose should be .............

    The one you can reliably, accurately, and quickly put holes in something.

    No one wants to get shot, Extra holes in the body tends to make an individual really uncomfortable and they TEND to go away from the hole making device and person wielding it.

    So, Pick one ( or more if you desire) and develop perfect practice so that you will be perfect when under stress and need to perform.

    (yeah I really didn't answer the which one is better because, I'd take any of them and practice practice practice)

    If that statement was TRUE, then there is NO REASON, for your Officers to carry them... You guys are supposed to keep the Peace, NOT be offensive in nature, but stand in defense of those who can't defend themselves, RIGHT??? Take that joker "OBAS" quick, as he is an Elitest IDIOT... Morooon of the Highest Order... (Bugs Bunny Definition)

    Am with Trac--if you need a handgun you have failed miserably in keeping them at bay. When you do need one then be able and willing to do so.

    All I can do is shake my head. That was a Police Chief? So if the police don't want to go on the offensive and stick it to the people then they don't need guns to defend themselves? How do you even talk to these people?

    Unfortunately, it is the 8.5 million people living in the 5 boroughs and the surrounding 8.5 million people that ring around that that keep voting for sphincters like Coumo and Bloomberg.

    sphincter, Now there is a good description of people like Diane Feinstein. It gets right to the core "center" of what she is . The pucker string, The actual @$$ hole of politics.

    Might also address the pucker factor they seem to have when anyone other than them owns a firearm...
