Re: Thoughts on a .40 cal
Ahhh.......... The whole idea of the 40S&W was a large diameter bullet cartridge in a small 9mm frame. When you do it that way you get what you get. 40 S&W recoils like a 45ACP and worse in light guns (think plastic).
If you want a full sized big gun then the 10mm is the one and it is in a frame that is big enough for a double column mag. If you think full power 40S&W recoils bad you ought to try a big 10mm. They recoil big and twist, along the centerline of the bore, in the hand as well.
