The best carry gun is one you can hit the target with. If you're not comfortable with heavy recoil, then a .22LR is better that a .45ACP. While I definitely think the Colt 1911A1 is the finest carry handgun in existence, a Ruger MkII is an excellent choice for a less experienced shooter. Six or eight long rifles into the chest cavity will dissuade even the most resolute car jacker.
