There is no "best" caliber. To many variables(plinking, home defense, CCW, hunting, etc.). The key is to choose the caliber that bet fits your needs AND your ability/likeness.

For CCW, I carry a Sig 229 in 357Sig. In the woods, I carry a Glock 20 (10mm). Its what I like. Shoot as many as you can and then choose. For the reloader, the 10mm and 357 mag are hard to beat.

Just for fun, check out "caliber corner" on glocktalk. Talk about some caliber wars! :yes:

For home defence and CCW, the 40. S&W loaded with Federal HydroShocks gets my vote.

Where I live the .40 rules in our combat pistol matches. But for hunting
make mine the Ruger super blackhawk in .44 mag. If you need more than
1 shot ,you may be in big trouble :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Whichever one you can put into a pie plate consistently at 7-10 yards at speed should be your hands down favorite.
