    Happy Friday, let's argue

    I say in an TEOTWAWKI scenario the 9mm is a superior round to .40 or .45.

    In this scenario most self defense situations you find yourself in 9mm will more than do the job. Even more important it will be easier to find as it is a more popular caliber. A 40 or 45 handgun wont do you much good if nothing is in it. I suppose you could throw it at someone.

    What say you?

    Hmmm, I say a 22 caliber semi auto pistol is better than a 9 MM.
    Wait, has the world recovered from the 22 shortage? I know my supply safe is ok. I do need more 45 though.
    Ugh

    .45 and 9mm are popular rounds in my neck of the woods. Either way, they are sidearms.
    TEOTWAWKI won't be a sidearm situation. It'll be a rifle situation.

    Let me get this straight. You are going to traverse what will be akin to a warzone with a pistol and you think the rest of us are without a brain?

    A side arm is only for fighting your way back to your rifle.

    Oh, of course I would prefer a long gun. But the choices were limited to 9mm, .40, and .45.

    A long gun was not part of the scenario which is always a possibility. Hence, sir, you've no brain. Good day.

    What do you mean by "easier to find"? I think any retail store that has ammo will be cleaned out pretty fast. Best bet is to stock enough for your needs, whatever your choice of caliber. I wouldn't presume I would find the ammo I needed.
