    Well, I’d say it’s the one you’ve got that you’re carrying. But if you were looking to get a CC I’d say a 9mm. It’s a good round, has a million options for type of bullet, is available everywhere and almost every semi-auto has it available as an option.

    9mm for a pistol. Ammo is cheep enough to practice a lot and it comes in many different shape and size frames to fit your needs. Revolvers however I’m going with .357 not as easy to carry as a 9mm pistol but when it comes to revolvers it is the biggest bang for your buck. Huge knockdown power and comes with the option of using .38 rounds for lots of cheep practice.

  • Samuel's avatar

    10mm a lot of rounds and alot of punch

  • Douglas's avatar

    Hand gun amo
