Big Holes mean More Leaks Out!

Drop the Blood Pressure,
Drop the Target!


Why do I like the 40 Slow & Weak (10mm Lite) for EDC?

I don't.
I realize the search is a great tool...but I just like to talk with people and get their opinions. Make for GOOD CONVERSATION=) Thanks for your info and opinion!

Short answer: No.

Long answer: It depends.

Oh, and to answer your ? on which and why...

.45 = would carry, but don't.

.40 = bad mix. Too much muzzle flip.

9mm = just right. For me it's the best compromise between caliber, capacity, and controlability.

Oh, and you should actually thank Cane. He answered your question, provided some insight and rationale, and gave you a link to some good information.

I too share your opinion when it comes to being scolded over starting a conversation which has already been discussed. I really don't see the harm in it.

That would be me, THE LITTLE BLACK STORM CLOUD. I'm sorry you don't like the answer I gave, but the topic has been thrashed about so many times and it never really goes anywhere.

But since you insist on it, I will interject my opinion. My caliber of choice is 10mm. Not the FBI Lite variety. I like power and range. 100 yards is not a difficult shot when you start off with 175 grains at 1250fps.

I have a 40 for off duty simply because it is concealable and powerful enough. I do not feel undergunned with a good 9mm (124 gr Gold Dot +P).

i'm with Robo and Cane, this debate over 9mm vs. 40 S-W vs. 45 acp has been beat to death. all that happens is everyone gets their feathers ruffled, starts big arguments over what is better and why. simply put, carry the biggest caliber you can shoot accurately, period. there is not better than another, because there are too many variables to consider. i own many different pistols in many different calibers, and i carry different ones at different times, and i never feel intimidated or outgunned! this horse has been beat to death, too many times.
