The Age-Old Question: Which Caliber Should You Carry?

So many people ask which caliber they should be carrying. Does a .380 round have enough stopping power to take down an attacker? Does the lower capacity and higher cost justify the perceived power of a .45 round? These are all extremely important questions, and it’s one that almost every concealed carrier has asked.

NRATV’s Colion Noir joins NRA Carry Guard Daily’s Grant Stinchfield and NRA Carry Guard Lead Instructor Jeff Houston to discuss caliber size, stopping power, and common myths you may have heard concerning EDC firearms chambered in 9mm.

Look for new NRA Carry Guard Daily videos Monday through Friday at 9am Central, 10am Eastern on the NRA Carry Guard Facebook page. Past episodes are available on the NRA Carry Guard Asset Journal and on NRATV.
