    Or perhaps they can do whatever they want to with the .40 caliber, including shooting lower recoiling ammo if they enjoy it. Every day is not Zombie apocalypse day guys....

    You're compromising on velocity. Everything has a trade-off.

    No compromise on velocity is required: compare 180-grain .40 defense loads with standard or +p 185-grain .45 ACP. :cool:

    That said, I prefer 230-grain loads in .45, gladly "trading off" velocity for mass, while keeping bullet diameter nice and big. However, I don't consider that to be a compromise!
