I got out to Reeds Indoor Range today and rented a couple of .40 cals. I have my mind made up on the Beretta PX4 Storm for my 9mm purchase. So it was time to start the research for my .40 cal purchase. I started off with the M&P and Glock 22. I shot 50 rounds through each. I liked both. I would be happy to own both and may one day but I have to start with one. CZ, SIG, XD and Heckler & Koch at a minimum will be included in my research. In the Isosceles stance the M&P sites seemed to work better for me. In the Weaver stance the Glock sites worked better for me. I am probably not being fair to either gun as I have recently started shooting again after 25 years. I have noticed having fired the Glock 17, 19, 34 and now the 22 I have not found the trick with the magazine release. I can't figure out the right way to depress the release button so the mag comes out. The M&P no problem, press the button and out drops the mag each time. I will sort it out soon because I really like the Glocks. The best part of my range trip was after I went through 100 rounds of .40 cal I pulled out my 22/45. What a gas! For a moment I had to ask myself if any rounds were leaving the barrel because there was so little muzzle climb compared to the .40's. The mission for my purchases is home defense and recreational shooting. I would love to carry but I live in California and need to stay in California for a while.
