I guess Jeff Cooper has been dead long enough and people are really starting to believe that he isn't coming back. Everybody and his Uncle is switching from .45 to 9mm these days. But now that the Colonel is dead fer sure they don't have to worry about getting made fun of doing so.
Plenty of reasons to do so. But there were plenty of good reasons to do so in 1989, too. What 'new' reasons are there besides the absence of Cooper's ferocious visage looking down upon you, disapprovingly??
People are convinced that the ammo makers have dialed it in on the self-defense bullets that are out these days. The Miami shootout is almost 30 years ago and decent ammo has been readily available for 25.
If .380 was good enough to tote in 2008 then 9mm is just fine in 2012, right?
Double stack magazines are arguably better now than in the days of Lethal Weapon and Die Hard. Personally, ammo cap has never been a selling point for me.
About the only thing that could stop this drift toward the Europellet is to have the cabal of gunstore clerks meet and develop a new patter. Instead of recommending J Frames to new female shooters/purchasers, they could go, "You're a girl, you need a girl gun like the S&W M&P 9mm. M&P stands for 'Mauve and Pink' because we can get that gun for you customized in those colors. It might also stand for 'Metrosexual and Progressive.' Either way, a perfect Lady's Gun." Yeah, those kinds of gunstore clerks. But don't dismiss their influence on the general public...
