I have had the sw99 and p99 both have been great. The 45 is still a good cartridge , as I always say any gun will do,if you will...as well as remember in bullet placement and real estate it is always location , location, location.
And yes I read the FBI report on calibers and I love the 9 mm.

I am not trying to incite any caliber wars; nope, not prudent, won't do it....

But, I found this link to a graph of muzzle energy using data from BBTI interesting. http://www.ballisticsbytheinch.files...12/megraph.jpg

Here is the link to the OP when the fellow made this graph (taking or leaving his observations and commentary.) http://www.northeastshooters.com/vbulletin/threads/232053

Yes, I know that this is not the same thing as terminal energy, that shot placement matters, etc., etc., etc.
