Since a majority of agencies in the country went to .40, which cost them more, it's inaccurate to say they choose completely based on budget.
I did not say budget was the sole determining factor I said it had to meet the specifications that were set out also...

Unfortunately that has little to do with terminal performance of handgun projectiles. Unless you believe that muzzle energy is indicative of performance.
Weight and Energy along with the expansion or non expansion of the round will matter. Physics matter along with accuracy.

Lastly not everyone is incapable of handling a 45 with the same relative ease as a 9mm. I am a physically large guy and I find 9mm,40,45 are all relatively a non challenge in handling recoil. Some people have different strenght and different builds of course. Besides if done correctly lets hope more than one or two shots arent necessary.
