    It all depends on the gun and the GUNNER. My current "working" set includes ONLY those handguns that I am able to shoot and control well. I have one each in all the most popular handgun cartridges (well, two .45 ACPs) and have fired dozens of others - when or if you get the chance to compare different styles and configurations - you will find one that becomes part of YOU - that's the one to keep and use.

    I only have one 40 S&W handgun remaining in my collection. I prefer the 9mm for affordablity and capacity. There is no difference in accuracy, although most shooters will say that they can shoot faster follow up shots with a 9mm.

    I will say that during the post election run on ammo. The only stuff I could find with any regularity was 40 S&W ammo. That's why I keep at least one firearm in my stable chambered in the 40.

    Range gun get a 9mm, less expensive ammo less recoil. What do you need great firepower at the range for?
