Hey everyone, I'm looking at getting my 4th handgun and would like your opinion on what I should get. I'm looking at either a 9mm or a .40 S&W. I currently have a EAA .357, Glock 30, and a Springfield MC operator. I would like a recomendation on waht gun to get. I reload so I'm hoping for a good gun that will work for farm use and carry. Thanks for your time.
The .40 S&W round is excellent and since you reload, cost is not as much a factor......JJ
My daily carry is a Ruger SR9c. It has lots of holster wear and it's fun to shoot or let a friend shoot, without any cautions or disclaimers. I reload the plentiful, and usually free, 9 mm brass. On occasion, I'll buy some WWB or Federal ammo at Walmart and find that it's cheaper than anything bigger and lots that's smaller. And, when I'm through shooting I still have the brass to reload more.
I have weened down all of my firearms to .40 cal..................I just like shooting .40 cal......a bit more challenging than 9mm, and I prefer to know that I have a weapon in my hand, while still being accurate.....just picked up a Ruger SR40, for the wife, so we can keep ammo consistant....I think it's the best bang for the buck, and you can see, by the above chart, that if you shoot 165 gr....it's a very potent bullet.
Since you reload, go with something cool and unique: the Ruger Alaskan in .454 Casull. Git 'er done.
