    90-two 9mm or .40

    I am about to purchase a 90-TWO and I am trying to decide whether I should get the 40 or the 9mm. I trying to teach my wife to shoot, and I will keep the 90-two at home for self defense. I feel like the 9mm will be easier to teach her, and because I am in the fine state of maryland, I will most likely not be shooting at anyone in body armor,

    Any advice, or insight?

    I'd say 9mm... Low recoil, may be easier for her to shoot and become comfortable with.

    9mm:

    Lighter recoil
    Ammo less expensive
    Holds more BBs

    .40:

    More powerful than 9mm
    Kicks harder
    More expensive to shoot
    Holds fewer BBs

    People will soon post and say 9mm is a weak-kneed peashooter and .40 is the Thunder Hammer of Thor. But in the real world - as opposed to the hypothetical internet - 9mm is fine for defense with good modern JHPs. It is also much easier for a new shooter to handle.
