I love what all three moderators had to say. Completely factual in my eyes.
Yes, .45 is a push into your hand. While .40 (what I learned on for the academy) is a flip up on the front of the gun. A "snap". So that so called "macho man" online, is indeed correct.
Was I efficient with the .40? Yes...Was it easy? No. Would it have been costly to me to invest all that time in .40 when I could have done it in half the time with 9mm? Yes.
I shoot 9mm and .45 way better than I shot .40, which is why I made the switch.
Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium. Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde.
