      .40S&W calibers are the only thing I shoot...for now.

      So I love them.

      I don't care for it in small guns due to the snappy harsh recoil. It's OK in larger guns, but I still like the mild recoil of the 9mm Luger or the "push" of the .45 Auto better.

      There is going to be a GLOCK 27 for sale soon.

      I carry a Glock 23 so am bias. I scanned the latest Solider of Fortune magazine yesterday and saw that the military is considering the .40. That could change the supply and demand thing.

      I do not have much experience with the .40 S&W.

      I have only fired about 25 rounds from a well used Sig...and I think it was a Polymer Sig. Does Sig make a polymer?

      I much preferred the 45 ACP Para-Ord 1911 and the Glock 9mm over the Sig 40 S&W.

      It could be the weight of the 1911 absorbed much of the recoil from the 45ACP...I dunno...but as of now, I am not a fan. I will likley still get a 9mm as a first gun, and a 45ACP as my next (or third) gun. I probably will not bother with the 40 S&W.

      I love the .40 S&W. 2 out of four of my firearms are in .40 and all future purchases will be in .40. My short list is an XD, A P99, a P2000, and another P226 ST. I can get all of those in .40 S&W. I shoot well enough with it in both a P239 and a P226ST.

      It has size, speed and capacity all in one.

      The only two long shot purchases that won;t be in .40 are a 10mm and a .44 mag.

      I thought the 40 was going to be the perfect round because it was between the 9mm and 45 acp. I got my P99 with S&W 40 and thought the gun was not very accurate. Then I got a compact XD in 40 and same thing. I was given a new compact XD 9 mm for doing some work and I was able to shoot much better with it. The 40 is just to snappy for me. I think it's easier to shoot the 45 acp than the S&W 40. I pick brass up all the time at my range and have to say the 40 is the most popular. 80% of the brass I find is 40. It was just not meant to be for me.

      40s&w

      I have a M&P40 a really like the .40 cal very mild recoil.
      I also have a S&W 4506-1 and there is nothing like shooting a big .45acp.

      I personally like the .40 ....good compromise between stopping power and magazine capacity. I'm still a .45 fan tho.

      I have an Astra A-75 in .40, and even in that little gun, recoil isn't that bad. It's been a great gun so far. Gobbles up everything I have tried so far.

      I kind of want one in .45 just to see the difference.

      my friend recommends the .40 for knockdown power. I don't want to get a 9mm because of low price and then a .40 because i want to so i might just get a .40 in a sig or beretta.

      Cool 40

      i like 40 cal a lot saying something is inherently wrong w/ the round sounds like an urban legend to me. i have a 40 cal XD, and plan to get a 40 cal sig 229 next the 40 has very high muzzle energy hence cleaner bore.

      the 40 is an ok round.....just not my favorite. I believe it is an "overelapping"
      round....we have plenty of 9mm's and the .45 is well established....so don't see the need for something in that gap to fill in.
