For a all-around gun (casual shooting, carry, and home protection) I suggest a 9mm just because of price and availability of ammo and the hi-capacity mags (XDM holds 19, G17 holds 17 with optional 30rd). But if ammo price isn't a factor for you then by all means GET A 45. Not much that can withstand a round or 2 of 45 ACP.
