"This has to be the biggest and most often repeated myth on gun forums."(Sanch), in response to; ("Some people found the 10mm too powerful to handle. S&W engineers came out with the 40 S&W as a compromise. Bigger than a nine, less power than a ten. It swept among law enforcement over existing calibres".)

?? Your opinion, or fact Sanch?

4V50 Gary, is correct.
FBI and other LEO agencies have this procedure they call "Yearly qualifications", and when an equal opportunity abiding State or Federal agency has officers with small hands... who cannot handle the recoil of a certain caliber / weapon, be it the 10mm, .40 S&W, .357 Magnum, etc., they adopt a smaller caliber. Most agency's currently issue 9mm's and have seen improved qualification scores. That's not opinion or internet myth, but fact.
