I would probably go with the 9MM bitone it looks awesome.

I shoot IDPA and USPSA with a 9mm... have as much fun as the rest .. Check your ammo cost there and think you'll see a big difference between the two ..

personally, not a fan of the way a 40 recoils. just feels odd to me. i own a 9mm and i've shot my father in laws .45 and to me they are both awesome and very similar in terms of how they recoil. as someone above said, id go with one where ammo is more affordable? never shot IDPA or any other shooting competition so idk how much capacity means to the individual.

shoot and d c bring up a good point y not buy both lol i wish i cud guys sadly can only have one for the mean time then add a few more to my collection in the new year i am kinda leaning towards the 9mm its near $40 at the moment for 100 rounds of .40 the 9mm rounds r so cheap lately so maybe better to go for 9mm cheap for competition and plinking

I just purchased the .40, but will probably get the 9mm when (not if) I start shooting more.

I'd go for the 9 for mass plinking or competition...:)

My personal preference is for all black guns but if given a choice between a bi-tone and a OD green or tan pistol I would go with the bi-tone.:D
