depends on what your gonna use it for.
in self defense speed and accuracy are more important.
one of the reasons i dont like the 40sw for sd is the very snappy recoil. i find them hard to keep on target and still get fast follow ups. i prefer 45acp they dont flip up as much and you get a better sd round. its the same reason i dont like revolvers as sd guns, too slow. (yes i know there is one guy in the world that can fire a heavily modified wheelgun with ultra-light loads in .000000005 billionth of a second)
for a target gun and general plinking it doesnt really matter.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
