The Best Pistol for Concealed Carry? 9mm vs .45 ACP

Otis TV

Carbon Score: 8.5

Which is better, the 9mm or the .45 ACP? This is the age-old question that Greg Essenlohr and Matt Ferland from Otis Technology will be diving into in today's video. We will be putting these bad boys to the test, testing both the 9mm and the .45 ACP on plastic bottles, watermelons, metal, and more! See first hand how the impact, and results vary between each pistol, and how even changing the type of bullet can affect the testing outcome. Matt and Greg will also be giving us a quick history lesson on the 9mm and the .45 ACP, and how these two handguns have been used throughout history. Stick around to the end of the video to see a guest appearance from the 10 mm, one of Matt’s favorites!
