That's too bad. The 9mm is only good for women and Europeans.
I have to assume that you are joking. They will continue to use 9mm .45 is only popular in America. Its not as popular in Europe possibly because the .45 has more recoil requiring extra training less mag cap plus marginal if any performance advantages over 9mm.

He means .40 caliber Sig 229's...........since there is no other commonly encountered/popular round referred to by .40____ most folks just ignore the S&W.

Many manufacturers don't like putting a competitors name or initials on their guns.
Ex. Glock only stamps ".40" on their guns.
