    Yea, but they can guess, put it on the internet and then it becomes truth.

    There is one distinct advantage that the .40 S&W has over the 9mm, and that advantage is its performance against intermediate barriers.

    That being said, the 9mm has the advantage of being much easier to control with one hand and off hand shooting, and for most of us, accurate follow up shots are quicker.

    YMMV.

    I for one am very happy with our Glock 35s, 22s, and 27s. The latest shooting we had was an axe welding idiot who crumpled after a quick double tap at danger close distances. I know of no failures to stop since adopting the 40, although, there were never any with the 10mm either.

    I cannot find any fault in the 40 from what I have seen, and the reports I have read.

    Tulsa County Sheriff's Office issues the Glock21 in good ol'45. Our carry ammo is Speer Lawman, we fondly call it the "flying ashtray". Be safe out there brothers and sisters...

    I'm surprised to see that 5 agencies use the 45 GAP.

    Thanks for the post, OP.It was interesting and I was a LITTLE surprised to see Glock come up so often; but not totally!

    re: 45 gap,
    one reason FLA went to them is that glock essentially gave the guns to them. in many cases what weapons are chosen is an economic decision

    Great post, enjoyed going over the list. I see lots of discussion about the 40 and 45 GAP, but I am surprised at the small number of 45 ACP used.

    I can tell you the caliber used by the entrance wound though.

    I agree. That comes from more inet misinformation. And, how many gun savy medical examiners are there?

    The 357Sig is on there because of performance.
    The gap is there because it's free.
