Hey guys I have finally decided on the P229R but don't know which to get a 9mm or .40? Any suggestions? Thanks
I've bought many more 9mm than any other calibers.
My reason is that I shoot a lot .. 9 mm $10 a box - .40 cal $18 a box .. .45 $23 a box. .. 10 mm can't find it often $ 55000 a box
You do the math - if you shoot much - you can buy a new 9mm gun at least once a year on the saving
I'm just saying .....
I have a 226 in 9mm and a 229 in .40, and I wish it was the other way around. .40 is better suited to the bigger pistol, IMHO.
it really depends on what you are using the gun for. If it was for a self defense situation then i would chose .40 on because it does not penetrate as much as 9mm does. However, if you are just target shooting then why not go with 9mm because significantly less
