If you’ve spent much time chatting with firearms aficionados, there’s a good chance you’ve heard one of them weigh in on carrying a .45 caliber self-defense pistol versus investing in one chambered for nine-millimeter rounds.
Nine-millimeter nuts brag about the number of rounds their weapons can carry. Most full-sized nine-millimeter handguns come with double-stacked magazines that carry 15-20 rounds each.
Fans of the .45 generally have fewer shots per magazine, but they argue that it’s a bigger round with more stopping power. At firing ranges, gun stores and internet forums across the nation, it’s not hard to find someone who insists you just can’t count on the nine-millimeter for self-defense.
If the folks at G2 Research have their way, though, those critics will soon be eating their words. The ammunition manufacturer recently revealed their new nine-millimeter Radically Invasive Projectile bullet design, and it’s a sight to see.
