So here is a question. What calibers does everyone prefer. Lately I have been going back and forth between .357 Magnum and 9mm. Yesterday I shot a 2 inch phone book with Hornady Critical Defense in .357 and in 9mm just for fun. Both made the same size hole in the front. However in the back the .357 was much more impressive, about 3 times the amount of damage. The gun store that I manage started out because we cnc'ed speedloaders so I always have one on me for my revolver. A lot of times I carry a S&W Model 19 revolver.
Here is a picture of our speedloaders:

So what is your preferred caliber for CC?
As you can see, 9mm SD ammo isn't that far behind 40 and 45. So for me I carry 2 mags with 17 rounds of Remington Golden Sabre +P. One main thing for me is I shoot my 9mm really well versus my 45s. Plus my 45s are full size 1911s.
