My favorite is Remington 700 vs CZ 550. CZ of course. Tried both and the decision was too damn easy for me. I have friends who disagree though. Maybe I will start a new thread on why I did not go with Remington.
Now you know better! lol.
If you REALLY want to see people go ape-sh*t, start a thread called "which is better, Remington 870 or Mossberg 500"
Sir I must disagree. The 40S&W was the result of the infamous FBI shootout in Miami where several officers failed to neutralize 2 criminals with their .357 revolvers loaded with .38+P and 9mm pistols and were later shot themselves. Because of this incident, the FBI felt they needed a more powerful ammo.Why would you want a .40 they are all plagued with being either under power for the weight of the gun or having a lot of muzzel jump and just ....lacking in general either get a .45 or stick with the 9mm...the .40 smith & wesson was created due to the fact that there are more female police officers out there and was targeted at police departments who primarily use .45 ACP as a carry weapon well its been 15 years and the 9mm has become the predominant handgun round in the universe.FYI i know alot of cops male and female they all hate the .40 s&w they either still carry .45 ACP or they carry a 9mm mall security guards don't even like them it was a nice idea that fizzeled out along time ago don't waste your money
Your opinion, my experience shows that it doesn't give up much to a 45 ACP. The main reason I went with 40 S&W is that no 45 ACP ammo was available at the time I needed a firearm for CCW and now with even 40 S&W ammo next to impossible to get a hold of I'm very glad I went to that caliber because I stocked up with plenty of ammo at very decent prices. And as for "Snappy", it's never bothered me but then I started out shooting 44 mag single action revolvers so recoil never seemed to be a big deal for me.Don't buy 40 at all go 45. 40 is the worst of both worlds
Here in the S.W. corner of Oregon almost all of the LEO's use 40 S&W, 357 Sig ammo is rare to be seen here. What's interesting is that my Cougar 40's magazines will take 357 Sig ammo so if I wanted to get a barrel in 357 Sig, if available, they would work.Take a look at .357 Sig caliber before you get a .40 caliber. It's a 9mm projectile on a .40 caliber brass. It's the choice of quite many LE agencies. I have two .357 Sigs (along with two 9mm's) and love 'em.
