Well said!I actually had a humorous thought cross my mind last week when I purchased quite a bit of .40S&W ammo for both target and self-defense. The thought was simply replaying all the ".40 suck", ."40 is history" and "buy anything but .40" threads I've read over the last couple of years, and thinking "who's laughing now?".
I own firearms in most every major caliber, and have never wanted to jump on the .40 is dead bandwagon, because I like the .40 S&W just as much as any other caliber I own. When there seemed to be some emotional mass exodus away from .40 S&W toward 9mm, I simply sat back and watched while thinking back on previous ammo shortages, and thought that this will not work out well for some of the "only 9mm" guys.
My advice to anyone would be to forget abut the meaningless caliber wars, and diversify with the many wonderful calibers that our market provides. This way, when these shortages hit, and they will hit, you will likely have some caliber that you can find.
