The .40 S&W out of short barrels are still high velocity, and have a much better chance of creating that "bigger hole" that .45 lovers are always talking about. Added capacity in .40 is a bonus.

    Not to start a caliber war, or anythng......
    Good points. That's also why I'm considering a .357 SIG at some point in the future.

    After robbing a local bank, a gang member was shot in the shoulder with a 45acp out of a derringer back about 10 years ago. Put the BG on his butt.
