Ok I had read on here and I cant find the thread to link it that someone was saying that in a SHORT barrel gun as in LESS than 4" and more like 3-3.5 that the .40 S&W is more effective...well what is the consensus on that statement. Reason I ask is im gonna be looking for a smaller/thinner CC weapon for my next gun. I had gone with .40S&W because it was actually cheaper and more available locally...well its not anymore..I can find .45 ACP for the SAME price and just as often as .40S&W if not MORE often. So in a shorter barrel CC gun(Taurus pt145,Glock36,Walther PPS .40, 1911 4" model(in both .45 or .40), something of that sort is what im looking at). id seen caliber wars B4 but had not noticed anyone ask the shorter barrel question B4..just .40 or .45 battles but nothing about the 2 in a shorter barrel CC weapon.
