Have not tried that one...

Shot sever other compacts and subs in .40 and found them way too snappy for my liking but that's a preference thing. Just known many folk who went .40 on there first CCW gun and could not handle the "pop"... and wound up loosing money stepping up to a bigger gun or stepping down to 9 mm.

I've been a pistol shooter and EDC guy for 17 years and I find the .40 to be more recoil "muzzle flip" than the .45 ACP.

It's very manageable "for me" in a full size platform like the 226... but just way to much torque in the compacts... but if other can handle it, more power to em!

I understand this is blasphemy, but a Hi-Power in .40 cal is a pretty good choice.

You know what's funny about this thread up to now?

The member who posted the question is not online.

He has not specified wether he wants a ccw or home protection handgun.

What price range, skies the limit or hi-point level.

We are a bunch of gun nut's aren't we. Lol.

It's all good... right up to the point were you start trying to convince your reloading bench of a particular gun or calibers merits...because no one else in your life wants to hear it!

Oh I know, how about a Sig MPX sub machine gun. It comes in .40 S&W. Germans consider sub machine guns as machine "pistols"

I have a SIG P226 in .40 and really like it but I've yet to find a compact or sub compact I've liked in this caliber.

Have you tried the Sig P239? I got mine when they first came out and really like it.
