    I don't think it is unpopular. In fact, among LE is one of the most common calibers. I have several 40's, but must admit 9mm is cheaper to shoot.

    Why close the club that has the name of the best semi-auto pistol cartridge of all time on it?


    :dunno:



    Long live the .40 S&W! This round kicks ass! It's the 10mm that came to it's senses. It's everything you need and nothing you don't. It does what it does really well and has the street track record to prove it.

    The reason the 9mm and .45 people hate it so much is because it takes the argument away from both sides!

    Aside from the heaviest .45 loads, the .40 will do everything the .45 can do.

    The 10mm people hate it because it's a 10mm with slightly less penetration and excessive penetration isn't something you want against two legged foes.


    If the .40 is so bad why do the 9mm,.357 Sig, and .45 crowds always compare their cartridge to the .40? It sure sounds like it's the cartridge to beat because it's the cartridge to have. :whistling:


    It's the .40 for me thanks!

    :cool:
