...until I saw that James Yeager guy rail on about how it destroys guns and stuff. Not sure how true it is.
His video has been discussed in other threads. Most of what he says is either misinformed or grossly exaggerated.

Although I don't want to rehash everything that was discussed previously, IIRC one of the main issues is that he parrots the myth that .40S&W is a "high pressure" cartridge. While it DOES operate at higher pressure than .45ACP, .32ACP, and numerous legacy revolver cartridges, it does NOT operate at substantially higher pressure than other commonplace modern auto pistol cartridges such as 9mm Para or .357Sig.
