I personally like a .40 more power than a nine and less recoil than .45 plus has plenty of stopping power and a decent round capacity 16+1. plus like nypd13 said you can purchase separate barrels and have a different cal. I got a 9mm conversion and .357 sig love em both. Just be sure to grab matching mags for your conversion barrels much smoother feeding

I don't think the 40 is less recoil than the 45. There are a lot of factors that go into recoil. The weight of the gun is a big factor, the amount of "pressure" in the barrel and the grain of the bullet and more.

I can't find a good chart. Chuckhawks website has a table, but for 40 it's only showing a light gun weight which makes the recoil look even more. Here's a link to that...
Click...Handgun Recoil Table

This is the best rank order chart I can find...
Click...FIREARMS TUTORIAL

This shows energy at the muzzle in ft pounds:
380 189
9mm 391
45 ACP 411
40 S&W 484
357 magnum 583
44 magnum 1036

I'm pretty sure that's a correct order of recoil for these and from firing most of these myself! I've never fired a 44 magnum though, but I do know the 357 magnum is the biggest recoil handgun I've fired.

Now if you fired a 9mm +P in a light weight small gun and then fired a 45 in a heavy steel 1911, then the felt recoil would be much more on the 9mm +P due to gun weight affecting the momentum of the gun and increased pressure giving more energy out the muzzle.
