Best case scenario is to train with the guy/round that you are going to carry on you all the time. this way your muscle memory will be honed to that weapon. The same goes for training for a competition at your local club but ESPECIALLY with the gun that is going to one day save your life.
If cost is your real issue use the cheapest 357/40 you can find and practice with those. 9mm doesn't translate very well into 357 sig or .40 cal. when it come to reaction time and muscle memory. Two different animals.
Just my 2 cents...
I am from Cleveland, and I remember the Kent State shootings.
