Not a fan of the xd especially after the recent recalls for the roll pin

I believe both, something about a weakened pin just behind the ejection port and the gun goes click when you wanted a boom LOL. Not something I wanna bet my life on.

The 40sw is a high pressure round just like the 9mm. I like the 9mm as it's a capable round. I have a Sigma 9mm that shoots quite well. I'll bank my life on it. I tried the 40sw and I like that one too. I have a Sig P250c 40sw and it shot well. Now I trust the 40sw more than the 9mm. It's bigger and more powerful. It's snappy just like the 9mm and I'm used to it.

I use a 9mm because I am trying to cut down on the different types of ammo I have to keep on hand. Just keeping 9mm, 357, 22LR, 12ga & 30/06 ammo on hand is a headache. I am not sure I want to add other calibers.

You might want to make your decision along those lines.

I use to have a .40 glock and it was nice but I recently stepped up to a .45, got a m&p 45c. Love it.

I been searching on the net and can't find anything about a recall. Springfield did say they had some break because of excessive dry firing and that of your break they will fix it.

I would suggest finding a range that rents guns. Try a 9mm and a .40 in the same size gun (i.e. Glock 19 & 23 respectively). Get which ever caliber you are more comfortable with. I personally shoot .40 but every shooter is different. Absolutely nothing wrong with 9mm. My next CC piece will be a Kahr CM 9 (9mm).
