    i will be buying a .40 cal auto as soon as i can save up the cash, what is your guy's favorite .40 cal? and why? if you can, post up pics and prices, thanks
  2. For me it would definitely be the Glock 27, Crimp. This pistol (one of the so-called "mini" Glocks) is very compact and accurate handgun and makes a fine carry or in-home defense piece. What is more, with the Mod 27 you can buy an additional Glock barrel in .357 Sig caliber (intended for the Glock 33) and interchange it with the .40 barrel of the Mod 27, thus for very little more money (about $140 for the additonal barrel) you get two pistols instead of just one. Personally, I love the Glock pistols and shoot them well, but that is strictly a matter of taste; some people do, some don't.

    I only own one but I still favor it over other .40's I've tried. It's a HK USP40.

    I agree with SouthernShooter, the XD40. Just sweet to shoot.

    Why would any sane person buy a high pressure .40 cal that is superceded by the low pressure .45 ACP round with heavier bullets to boot???????:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :D

    My Baby Eagle .40 is fun to shoot. I also like my XD 40. You couldn't go wrong with either one.

    I have a S&W sigma in .40 It has been very reliable, accurate, and fun to shoot. It's also about half the price of some of the others mentioned here.

    If you have the money, then Beretta M96 is the way to go. I've seen groupings at about 0.8" with Winchester 165-grains (shot from 25-yards, bech rest, off-hand).
  10. The Beretta 96 is indeed a fine pistol, Enzo. I've shot one but don't own one. I do have a Beretta 92 (9mm) and it is extremely accurate. The only thing I don't like about that 96 and the 92 is the bulk and size of the pistols, at least for concealed carry.

    Well the topic starter never specified for CCW, otherwise the 96 would've never come up in my post (I'm a smaller guy so I have a hard time concealing even medium-frame autos). My grandfather has a 92 and it completely outsizes me and is slightly unconfortable for me to hold, so for smaller people I suggest the Springfield XD, which I've held and can say it feels much nicer to a smaller hand. I guess pretty much 90% of the "favorite" argument comes down to just how it feels in each individual's hands.
  12. My Taurus PT100. Stainless steel, 5" barrel, and custom pearl handle grips.

    Here's the website pic of it (but you can't see my beautiful pearl grips:( ):


    :(:(I just sold it today.[​IMG]
