It's nice to see a company that hasn't whored itself out to sell a .40.

I agree. I have always looked at the .40 as a yuppie round. All the power of a .45 but the speed of a 9mm b.s.
Give me a .45 or 9mm any day!

Exclamation Okay Then......

Your opinion. Your right. Your choice. I stand ready to defend that right!!!!

However, I AM a fan of the .40 S&W cartridge and own two. I even carry them for self defense with full confidence!!!

My opinion! My right! My choice!

Kimber did for a short time make a 40. The 40 is very popular in US PSA single stack division because it be loaded to make major and have an extra round or two and still make length.

If you don't like them, I'm glad you don't have one.

Personally, I have three pistols in .40 S&W. I enjoy it. Some don't like the snap, but I do. Until obtaining a Kimber 1911 in .45, the .40 was my favorite round. Now it's the .45. I gave up on .38 and 9mm some time ago and sold or swapped those pistols.

But then, that's why they make different flavored ice cream, isn't it?

Well, I don't hate them. I just don't want to have to stock up on another caliber.

I've shot my friends Springfield XD .40, it was nice but it didn't impress me (the cartridge not the gun).

I'm in the not a big fan of .40 S&W camp. I'd much rather shoot .45.

After owning and shooting my 40's I have to tell you I was a little disappointed in my first 45 as far as recoil. I was expecting more snap. Especially with the 3inch. I like them all. They are all unique. Changing calibers and guns keep you thinking.

I don't believe that anyone is trying to force you to purchase .40 S&W ammo!!!

If you don't like it, don't buy it!!! That leaves more for me!!!
