    Thanks for the feedback? How much are you going to pay for .40 compared to 9 mm? Maybe another $4 for 50 rds?

    Re: Should I buy another 9mm or a 40 cal?

    You do not have to choose. Get a 40 S&W with a 9mm conversion barrel. I have a Glock 27 and a Lone Wolf 40 to 9mm conversion barrel. For this, I also use 9mm magazines. I do not change the extractor, ejector or anything else.

    FYI, I live in CA, I don't have a carry weapon as its too hard to get a CCW. These will mainly be in my stable.
    There's quite a bit of difference between these calibers and you can definitely feel it when shooting them. A good self defense load in .40S&W (165gr) approaches 500 foot pounds of energy at the muzzle and clocks around 1150 fps muzzle velocity. One load comes in at 1200 fps with their 165gr bullet and over 525 foot pounds of energy. That is a stout load. One of the hottest loads I've seen is this one;

    Ballistics : 135gr. @ 1375fps / 567 ft/lbs- Glock 23 (4.0"bbl)

    Shoot that out of a Glock 22 and you're going to be up around 1400 fps and approaching 600 foot pounds of energy.

    I'd say buy a glock 23. 40 caliber and also get the Lone Wolf 40 to 9mm conversion barrel along with some Glock 19 mags. 2 guns in one. Simple as swapping the barrels and mags. Works great.

    I have Beretta 96 inox's, and a Ruger SR40....different animals, but using 180 gr. the handling of the recoil is manageable.........Gander Mtn. has their Blazer brass in 350 ct. for 9mm, and 250 ct. for .40......25 cents a shot for 9mm, 35 cents for .40.

    Will this worth the full size .40 glock?

    The Glock 23 is the exact same size as the 19

    I believe they (Lonewolf) make a conversion barrel for the full size model too.
