    Typically carry 45 concealed no problem been carrying for a long time, also like 40, I am in favor of the larger slower round, with modern loads 45 is out the barrel very quickly, besides 1/2 mass x velocity squared works for me.

    The math does make it easy to choose the round for self defense...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Most cops are not good shots, therefore more ammo capacity works is better for them. 40 cal Glocks are a good compromise of capacity and power.

    So, Treo, who's posting about 40 MILLIMETER? Mortar? Aerial bomb?

    Me? Where?

    .40 = 40 cal = 400/1000" or....10 mm

    Does the phrase "Hoisted on your own petard" mean anything to you?
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Close but wrong math.
    .40 = 40 cal = .40 inches * 25.4 mm/inche = 10.16mm

    Got it. My bad.

    Also, very good to know that this board is micrometric in its analysis and aggressively intolerant of the merest faux pas.

    Yeah, who here carries around an M79 or M203?

    Getting back to the original subject, I think I'll just split the difference in this 9mm vs. 45ACP debate and stick with 40S&W.
