Looking under your screen name I see a Ruger crest,,,,,,,,, I'm going to guess you'll be happiest with a Ruger, but that's just a guess. If you live in a 10 round state I would go 40, in a high capacity state it's a coin flip for me. I like the low recoil and low price of 9mm ammo. You can shoot the 9 faster than a 40, and it's very hard to beat speed and accuracy.
There is in life perhaps one fleeting moment when the courage, dedication and resolve of one man gambling against all odds will alter the destiny of nations.
