    Close, but bot true...the only way to resolve it is to shoot the next person to post the 9 vs 40 vs 45 question and ask them what hurt most.

    No offense to the OP. Honestly, it is an interesting question, just one that has been asked a bajillion times.

    Condescending, btw.

    I'm going to get a 94mm and a .49 caliber. I'll compare the two and give a detailed range report

    Wow. For a second there I thought I was reading Glock Talk when I saw all of the replies to a reasonable question.

    To answer the question, it's basically a personal preference. Personally, I vastly prefer 9mm to the .40SW. I just don't see where the .40SW offers enough performance over the 9mm to overcome the areas in which it is inferior to the 9mm. Typically, a 9mm has more ammo capacity, has less perceived recoil and muzzle flip, cost less, and less feeding issues.

    If for some reason I thought I just had to have something more than a 9mm, I would go with a .357 Sig or a .45GAP/.45ACP.

    They already did, but it was from some terrorist lover taking offense to my realistic views on how to handle terrorism. Dress or no dress...
