I 9mm is an effective round (for a hand gun). Personally, I don't think you'll go wrong with a 9mm, .40, or .45 ACP. I carry a Springfield XD-S chambered in .45 ACP, and my wife carries a 9mm as her everyday carry gun.

If there was trouble at my house, I'm not going for any of my handguns. Then it's shotgun / AR-15 time.

When you're at the range, and you line up your shot to center mass, and you pull the trigger, where you miss is indicative of what you're doing wrong -- if it's consistent. (Some short barrel concealed carry guns are not accurate at longer ranges; they aren't intended to be, either. However, the average full size hand gun is intended to be pretty accurate.)

Even if you're a terrific shot -- the bad guy will bleed out faster from a couple of holes from a .45 ACP than he will from a couple of .22's.

Accuracy matters -- so carry the highest caliber you can be accurate with. For me, that caliber is .45 ACP. Hornady Critical Defense / Remington Golden Saber +P.
