    Plano came close to saying it all: "What will a .40 do that a .45 will not, at half the chamber pressure?".
    If I had to 'downsize', the .400 CorBon, a '.357 Sig', on Steroids, based on the .45 ACP case, would be my choice, and the 1911 Platform, it's home!
    Presently, my only .40's are long guns, single shots, at that, in .405 Win, and 40-50, and 40-70, Sharps BN.
    Efficient caliber, but, for a pistol, excepting the CorBon, and the 10mm, in original loadings, a waste of time, and money, as previous chamberings for the same arms gave better terminal results.
    I ask only one question, before the furor begins; in your experience, had you shot a .45, and well, could you have improved on the results, had you a smaller (.40) pistol???
    My 1911's are all old and dear friends, the kinda friends one can count on; all,work the same way, and feel pretty much the same, in my hands, so 'no light' situations are almost a 'no brainer'- "point your finger, pull the trigger, threat goes away", simple response to ugly inputs, IMHO.

    I like my MiniFirestorm .40. and my brother likes his too. The shop I bought mine at had already sold eight of them to local Sheriffs for off duty carry pieces so that was good enough for me to get one six years ago. It was a bit rough at first but smoothed out just fine. They're really quite affordable too. If I remember right, I only had to give $306 for it then and I don't think they're much more expensive now.
