Re: 9mm vs 40mm

I made a decision a long time ago I wouldn;t carry a 9mm. I have a .40 cal Kahr that is small enough yet has all the punch needed to do the job.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Bullets have came along ways in 10 years. I would choose what I shot best.

Re: 9mm vs 40mm

Since the ammo shortage. I have always seen .40 ammo on the shelves. That and the power would be my choice as well of the 2 mentioned.

Re: 9mm vs 40mm

They may have, but the 9mm is still an anemic round compared to the .40 cal.

Re: 9mm vs 40mm

Buy both. I have a glock 19 and a 23. I carry the 40 and have the 9 in the safe. Was much easier and cheaper to get high caps for the 9. Seeing more and more magazines available again and the 9's far out number the 40
