What kind of 9mm did you pick up? I have a Ruger P89DC that i don't carry, but use at the range all the time. It had a very smooth trigger pull right out of the box and I have been shooting it for about 10 years now and have never had a malfunction.

I'm not sure if this question was directed at me, but it was a Sig P229 E2.

The .40 S&W is a fine cartridge
The .40 S&W cartridge throws a heavier bullet of greater diameter at the same or greater velocity than a 9x19 NATO round. I find the 9x19 NATO round suitable as a mini gun type round, not a serious defense pistol.
I find it fairly easy to shoot in my pistol, a H&K. Nor do I get serious case bulges from lack of support. The pistol involved is smaller in size than the .45s in my collection with the possible exception of the Commander. However, I won't miss the H&K in an evidence locker for extended periods of time like I would the Colt automatics in the armory.
.40 S&W is an excellent compromise in terms of horsepower, size and ergonomics -controlability. If your tastes, size of hand or sensibilities direct you to another firearm, be my guest. Just don't think your tastes and desires are the laws of the Universe.

I love my SIG .40!!! I like the round and the lower recoil.
