I'm a fairly new fan of 45ACP..

It took buying a Glock 21 to make me 45 fan.
Just bought a Glock 30 this weekend.
Plan to buy a Glock 36 for summer carry..

As much as I like a 1911, I've found is just isn't the right CARRY pistol for me...YMMV
The EMP is going up for sale soon..

So for me, it is 9mm and 45, never have and still don't like the 40cal...

Just picked up the .40 and I love it! I have shot the 9mm and the .45. Each gun feels different in the hand as it should, but my preference lies with the .40. Whatever route you choose to go, I think you will be pleased.

.40 is a great round if it hadnt been for cost all my 9's would be .40 ! next gun will most likely be a .40 and speaking of ... the first .40 i ever shot was a XDM 4.5 still cant figure out why i didnt buy it then ... As for 45's - they got that right didnt they ?

I said once, why a .40 when there are .45's. I have a 4.5 .45, 3.8 9mm "compact", 3.8 .45 "compact", and a 3.8 .40. My gun guy at the time said that he likes the .40rnd and since I had the itch for another "m", that's what I got. I liked it because I could also put a 9mm "conversion" barrel in it, as well. The .40 is a "snappier" round but not so much that muzzle flip is a problem. So, I have a nice array of XDm's and like the looks and feel of all of um. Oh, and just get both.

I like the 45 over the 40 bc it is a larger bullet is not a high pressure round and IMO has less muzzle flip than a 40. With that being said shoot a couple and see what u like
