Ready to invest in a handgun. Got it narrowed down to .40 s/w and a .45. Any advice from the experts here on which way to go?
I would go (and have gone) with the .40 over the .45. You really don't sacrifice much in the way of stopping power, ammo is much cheaper, and personally I find I'm much more accurate shooting the .40.
