Love the 18mm theory
Interesting to see so many folks carrying 357. If it wasn't that I like the slimness of a single stack and the quick reloads from a mag that probably would have been my second choice.
As I said, I am thinking btw about betraying my 45ACP.... Got a sig 365XL that I'll be picking up next week... I'll see how I like it. The trigger felt good on dry fire, but I'll have to see how I like it at the range.
What strikes me though as I already mentioned someplace above is the fact how many folks state: but it's quiet here after stating their carry choice. This almost means to me that they wish they had something with either a higher caliber or more rounds and they're using the 'peace' to justify what they got.

I've lived outdoors, never had much use for pistols.
Got an 45 ACP and disgusted me with accuracy, but I'm used to rifles. The pistol < 25 yds
Got a M29 and it took a while to get used to , but then I could hit liter bottles at 75 yds, flip woodchucks the same. I got into hunting with that . Not a rapid fire multiple target weapon, but I can hit stuff.
So one big hole, or a few misses and hits?
None of the dealers carry ammo for them or guns either for that manner, if one comes in used, it goes on G-broker, won't sell locally.
Now in today's market with the shortages, can you even find any for sale that you can get???
I have had dealers call me for ammo none have asked for the 10MM, plenty of request for 45, 9MM para, 38 spcl., 357, 380 but no 10MM.
This is not a time to be changing or adding a caliber.
Joe Bitme claims he is shutting down all online sales of guns, ammo, parts, mags to stop evil people from building guns from parts.
Now only if 10mm ammo production/ availability was better. I fear that in SHTF scenario calibers like 380 and 10mm will go by the way of the dodo and availability for the rest will be going from 9mm being most abundant to 45ACP on the lower end. Why? Military and law enforcement use 9mm so knowing realities of life there will be boxes falling from the trucks. Same for 40. 45 while not as widely issued, is still used by Government agencies which might be good for me as there won't be as many people looking for it.
