I know, I know - the caliber 9mm vs 40 debate has been beat to death... but what I want to know are peoples' opinions about the 9mm vs 40 in the S&W M&P compact version specifically.
I've only shot a 40 cal Beretta 96 a few times - all of my guns are 9mm or 380ACP, so I really don't have much exp. with the 40.
How would the recoil in the M&P compact be with each round and is the 40 cal controlable in a 3.5 inch barrel with a short grip?
Or recoil being about the same... who would just pick the 9mm because with good HP ammo the ballistics are about the same but you get 3 more rounds with the 9?
