    What Is the Best Pistol Cartridge?

    I want to get everyones' opinions on pistol cartridges. I have yet to shoot anything other than a Smith and Wesson .38 Special. As soon as I am 18 I am going to be able to begin my firearms collection. I've been looking at Glocks, H&K, and Taurus semiautomatic pistols.

    Do you mean caliber or brand like S&B etc..?

    Anyway 9mm and .22lr are cheap thus good choise, but if you are going to begin a firearms collection you'll probably get all the calibers available

    Buying guns is probably the best investment for your money, especially in these days...

    Good luck

    How is the kick on a 9mm? I have shot 22LR, and I like it especially in the Ruger 10/22.

    It's like firing a cap pistol IMO.

    The kick of a 9mm isn't bad at all. However, I've found that most semi-auto pistols have a wide shot pattern. All of my shots hit the target, but they're spread out like a shotgun blast.

    My favorite pistol is my Ruger .357. The recoil is rather stiff, but it is extremely accurate. It is also much more powerful than a 9mm.

    Where I live, car-jacking is a very real possibility, I trust my .357 more than my 9mm to deal with that.
    So Yacub knew that all he had to do was make a man unlike any other man on this Earth and because he would be different he would attract all other people. Then he could teach this man a science call tricknology....
    ....So Yacub turned to his uncle and said, "When I grow up I'm going to make a man who will rule you." And Yacub's uncle said,"What can you make other than that which will cause bloodshed and wickedness in the land?"

    I'm also a real big fan of the .357

    Recently I was comparing my shot spreads and I was extremely accurate with the .357, including bullseyes where as my 9mm will still all kill shots they had more of a spread to them. Perhaps I just need to practice with the pistol a little more.

    I think shot pattern is affected by barrel length more than anything else

    Both of my pistols have 4" barrels. I've noticed that all of the revolvers I've owned were consistently more accurate then the semi-auto's I've owned.
