I am kind of leaning that, if I can only have 10, I might as well have the biggest 10 I can.
no... you may want to do some caliber research. .45 has no more "power" than a 9mm. About the only advantage .45 has is if the HP doesn't open up you get about 1.5mm extra over the 9. There really isn't a reason to ever carry .45 over 9mm unless you are restricted to FMJ ammo.
