AWD received an email today from Ammo For Sale.com asking for help from the Big Sexy with a study they’re putting together on which is the best handgun caliber between the 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. Well, since AWD has all three (even though the 9mm is a comm-a-nist caliber), I thought I’d submit my opinion to them.
There’s been an ongoing debate for thousands of years between the 9mm and the .45. I like this one because it throws the .40 S&W into the mix.

1. Tell me which caliber you think is best and why: 9mm, 40 S&W, or 45 ACP. Please feel free to be as detailed or as ambiguous as you like. We realize you might have a preferred caliber for specific purposes, so feel free to say under what circumstances you’d choose that caliber.
2. Share your favorite caliber’s survey with your audience (Google+, Facebook, and Twitter are fine too). If we can get people who are passionate about shooting to take a few minutes for the survey, we’d end up with some truly useful data to pass along to our readers, and we’ll share all of that data with you once we have it compiled:
Here’s the address if you believe the 9mm is the best (you’ll be asked why)
Here’s the address for the .40
And here’s the link if the .45 is your choice:
Want to know AWD’s opinion on the matter? Well, I ain’t gonna tell you. All right! If you’re going twist my damn arm off! I chose the .40. I like my Glock 23 for the concealability, magazine capacity and stopping power. I also like it because I can shoot that sumbitch like a big dog. I like my new Remington R1 Enhanced a whole lot and do pretty well with it but it’s too big for carry except when hog hunting. That’s my opinion. Want to fight about it?
Y’all can weigh in about your opinions on these calibers. If you agree with AWD about the .40, then you’re right. If you don’t, you’re wrong. If you choose the 9 mm, aren’t you better off over at MSNBC.com and taking a bubble bath? Actually, I believe half-a-sissy Chris Hayes of MSNBC shot a 9mm once…and then cried.
Maybe ammoforsale.com is just looking for some free traffic from the 90TH MOST POPULAR CONSERVATIVE BLOG IN THE WORLD under the guise of a useful survey. Well, AWD doesn’t care! I like anyone in the gun and ammo bidness except those tools at Cheaper Than Dirt and Dicks Sporting Goods! Maybe ammoforsale.com will even throw the AWD a hundred rounds or so of .223 that we all can enjoy in a few weeks at Dude-a-Palooza! I’m gonna show you sumbitches just who can draw a bead at the Palooza!
And for your aural enjoyment, I’m going to post a video of a Texas patriot who was on the pitiful, libtarded David Letterman show last night. AWD’s favorite honky-tonker, Dale Watson singing “I Lie When I Drink (and I drink a lot).” I heard Dale beat Letterman and his gay sidekick to death with his guitar after the show.
AWD got to sing onstage with Dale a few years ago when I requested one of his early songs and he couldn’t remember all the lyrics. He invited AWD up on stage to help him out and didn’t have to ask twice. This is the song and it’s a good ‘un. “Burning In My Mind.”
