"I agree with the consensus.  Avoid trouble spots and situations.  Deescalate.  Run.  If you get into a situation where you can't avoid a fight, you'll have two choices, both of which have risks.  1.  Stay…"

Nathanael replied to Brad Williams's discussion Self-Defense Without Guns
"Solution: 10mm Seriously, though, it's all about trade-offs.  I have carry guns in .380, 9mm, .45, and 10mm.  Different sizes, different roles.  15+1 of 10mm is great, but it's a pain to haul around sometimes. "

Jack Bauer replied to Brad Williams's discussion Self-Defense Without Guns
"I carry both.  I don't see a problem with either.  9mm may take a couple extra shots to stop a really big, really motivated attacker ... but they also carry a lot more rounds, so it evens out.   My .45 carries 7, so it…"

"I'd heard something about it in the past week they were rating the various H2H methods and the SOF was rated higher than Krav, which makes sense as SOF is constantly evolving.  They also lead me to believe that there are schools out there…"

Jack Bauer replied to Brad Williams's discussion Self-Defense Without Guns
"They're bigger rounds with better stopping power.  A 9mm is the weapon of choice for many, but it will often take a few hits center-mass to stop somebody.  .45s tear bigger holes, so it takes less shots to stop. JB"
