    .40 has not been common pistol or rifle ammo in over a decade...

    that's why it is the most available...

    many law enforcement, Park Rangers, etc. use .40 S&W. I think its available because they make more if it than some other calibers.

    I went into my local gun shop yesterday to pick up the Kahr CW45 I had on layaway. I had just enough cash to do that, but when I walked in the door, I saw a strange and beautiful sight...bulk 9mm range ammo. Yeah, I know...Crazy!

    This place always has a good selection of self defense rounds, but for the longest time, has had no or very little 9mm range ammo.

    I pondered my glorious predicament for a few minutes and settled on splitting the funds - putting 2 Benjamins on the Kahr and picking up four 100-round bags of 9mm ($27 each) for my Sig and my wife's FNH. Awesome!!!

    They even had 50 round boxes of 9mm Blazer and other brands back in stock on the shelves.

    No .45 ACP range rounds, but I'm good on those for now.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Those stats about calibers have to be wrong because we all know that a .22 and especially a .25 cannot possibly be fatal. Even the .380 is questionable. And a Lorcin or Raven even being able to fire a shot without falling apart, give me a break.

    Well, like everyone says, "A well placed shot with a ..."

    But then, when I return fire with something that sounds like a cannon, even a not-so-well placed shot should at least make the BG soil his britches.

    I've bought thousands of rounds of 380 this year too. 380 is the rarest one out there right now but I just looked hard and in the right places. I posted here many times how folks could get both when I found it.
