.40 or .45?

I have both the 3.8 and 4.5 in the 9mm and have been recently looking into getting another firearm because I have the money to spend. I've asked a lot of people and friends what they prefer and it seems that there is a fair amount of people that like both the .40 and .45. I was hoping someone could help me with my decision. It would be for home defense and possibly conceal carry. Thanks

I'm a .45 fan. But I have shot a .40 Glock once, and thought it was a nice firearm. A .40 has a higher cap magazine, unless you are in California, New York, etc.

Have both 40 and 45....hard to say I love them both
that being said...40 ammo is a little cheaper than the 45

9mm and .40 are closer in specs than .40 and .45, might as well go big if you already have a 9mm IMHO.
