I know I'm slow. Is the .40 S&W caliber getting even less popular than I thought? They don't seem to be selling as fast as 9 mm or .45 on the classified area.
I can remember when it was the king.

People can’t control it and it does nothing exceptional well. It does a little of everything yet stays this |————-| close to exceptional.
Then again.......what caliber can you shoot comfortably with as much zip and power.

I've put my chips all in to the 40...have a 22, 23 and a newly acquired 27. I've shot them before and moved in and out of other calibers. This is my attempt to actually get really good at shooting one caliber instead of mediocre at many.

This might not work for everyone, but I'm giving it a go.

Same here, as a matter of fact, I had 2 27's, just sold on that was brand new. I posted it on here for sale, but no replies. Ended up selling it for $380. I love the 40 cal glocks

I've got two M&P 40s, including my carry gun, a 2.0 Compact. I prefer .45 , but feel comfortable with the .40.

If an S&W 4006 or a Sig P228/229 in .40 came my way, I wouldn’t turn my nose up at them. I have a Beretta 92 so the 96 doesn’t interest me that much because I’d like to diversify. I’m also a staunch DA/SA fan in a striker/polymer world so it seems like my options are already scant in this caliber.

I've always felt that the .40 S&W caliber is a great pistol to own IF you don't already own a 9 mm or a .45 ACP.

If you've already got a 9 mm, and want something that leaves a bigger hole, get a .45.
If you've already got a .45 and want something that holds more bullets, get a 9 mm.

That being said, I still want a Beretta PX4 Storm (full size or compact) and a 1911 in .40 S&W.

Makes me wish I had hung on to my 4506.

Was never much of a 40 fan but as the bottom drops out of their trade values; I'm buying LOL
