At one point I thought it was the ultimate self defense cartridge. My first handgun purchase was a gen2 Glock M22. It had the ban era 10 round mag's. Now, I'm going with 9mm, once I buy a suitable pistol. Thinking about a FN FNX. I like a pistol that can be cocked and locked and could never get really comfortable with the Glock trigger/safety set up. M1911 is still my favorite fun gun though.
