May I point out to everyone one important fact?
When it comes to standard military ammo, the 45acp beats the hell out of a 9mm any time. However, this is the problem.
The 9mm with standard 115 gr +p hollowpoint ammunition is quite a sufficient manstopper. I carry the Cor Bon version in my Glock 26.
As long as our troops are saddled with FMJ military ball ammunition, the M-9 will continue to be an insufficient manstopper.
Attack the ammo, not the gun.
Until then, get a new bullet, or go back to a proven manstopper, the 230 Gr ball 45 auto round.

(The first rule in a gunfight is to have a gun...)
The 9mm round is very popular with Eurofags. What we have to understand is the basic difference in the role of handguns for Americans. Americans consider the handgun a defensive tool against armed adversaries. The Europeans have traditionally used handguns to execute unarmed prisoners and civilians. For them a .22 would work.
