A head shot from a 9mm is more effective then a big boom from a 45acp. Get some good quality training, shooting beer cans gansta style isnt it. I would get a glock 9mm, save money for lots of ammo and upgrade later. Dont get me wrong, I carried a 45 for yrs, the only thing better is a 10mm.

HA HA HA, GLOCKS DONT HAVE SAFETIES AND THATS A BAD THING!
They were designed that way because so many people died with safeties on thier SW5906,4506 & berreta's and Browning HI PWR's.
FIND A COP OR TAC OPR WITH A SAFETY ENGAGED ON HIS CARRY WEAPON??? Then he's a REMF!
HEADSHOT: My ref to this was regarding getting a accurate pistol that the guy could shoot and shoot alot. Since you brought this up in a negative manor, I will expand. IF A HOSTILE POKES HIS HEAD AROUND A DOOR OR WALL, ARE YOU GOING TO WAIT FOR A CENTER MASS SHOT LIKE IT SAYS IN ALL THE GUN MAGS???? IF A HOSTILE HAS YOUR WIFE, CHILDREN OR PROBABLY LIFE PARTNER HOSTAGE, ARE YOU GOING TO SHOOT THROUGH THEM TO GET THE 10X CENTER MASS SHOT???? Where is the one place that shuts down all neurological, muscle activity, guarranting 1 shot threat elimination? What part of the body does body armor cover? Center mass! Body armor defeats 90% of all handgun ammo. So, being a trained tactical combat shooter you shoot for the head/ torso, hip/femoral artry, shoulder/brachial artry. Double tap, trip tap.

Thanks for the laugh's...
