9mm. I feel anything smaller wouldn't have the stopping power needed to stop someone in their tracks. Sure, they'll die, but it won't actually stop them instantly.

Although I was quite comfortable with my .40 caliber.

You people and your guns, I don't know.

Green Mango Ninja styles don't need no guns. Better hitting power, will drop all but the biggest beast.

Best of all - Ammo literally grows on trees.

I shit you not. My 12 gauge flare gun had inserts for .22, .22 WMag, .38, .44 , for shooting noisy birds at the cottage. With muzzle brake and silencer.

Fucking .22WMag was the only load to blow my gun receiver up. Quelle surprise!
