Help me make my decision

I will be buying another pistol soon, but I am trying to make the best decision here. Currently I have a Walther P-1 in 9mm. I want to upgrade to a .45 as it is more of a manstopper and requires less ammo than 9mm to take down an human target. (More cost effective)

I am looking at the USP 45, and the Para Ordnance LDA .45 hi cap.

I am trying to decide if it is worth it to keep my 9mm even through I am paying more for another handgun instead of selling it.

The only reason is that it is military caliber and the 9mm/.45 ACP should be easier than other calibers to get in case of a national emergency.

If you have the money why not just keep both, the more the merrier right?

How many people do you plan on killing.
Also, practice will be more expensive.

I have sold 3 guns in my life and have regretted it every time.

I was thinking the same thing.

In case of an emergency to protect your life - cost effectivenesss of ammo is not of concern to me. That being said - I love my .45

No 9mm guns in my house.

I'd second holding on to it. If you like shooting as a hobby or plinking too then the 9mm is great for that it costs a lot less to throw ammo down range than the .45. I've got a 9mm and its nice for that. With that said .45 is next on my list.

If its possible keep it, its better to have 2 guns instead of one in my book
