I know this post is old but i stumble across it so I just wanted to add my two cents about the navy using 9mm

to CZ&PX4 9mm is the standard ammo for the western military next to 45 acp, the military goes with 9mm caues of cost... the reason why they use 9mm and this is coming from a friend of mine that is serving as a SEAL in the US Navy 1. its their secondary weapon 2. when it comes to packing for a mission they want to carry as much ammo as possible at the same time trying to save weight which we all know out of all full size calibers 9mm carry more in the mag. 3. the 9mm ammo they have chamberd is +P! bascially gives the same stopping power of the .40 s&w. when I asked him what gun I should get for myself and his response was .40 caliber because i live in a cali and only allowed 10 round buy 9mm +p to have the same performace as a .40 cost more than if you just had a gun chambered in .40

180gr HST is my fav

i also like 180gr federal tactical bonded, and 155gr gold dot.

(the 155 gold dot is the only light weight 40cal round i like. it's a solid performer)

It doesn't matter because the .40 Short and Wimpy has no stopping power...

In my town not so long ago some doofus shot himself in the leg and drove himself to the hospital and walked in and asked for treatment....

You gonna risk your life on that round?

Trade it off on a .45 or a 9 or 10 mm....

If you ever have to use it for self defense, you will be glad you did....

You're kindof an idiot. .40 cal is 10 mm and a 9mm is .35 cal

And to the other guy the femoral artery is in your leg. . .pretty major.

First, Welcome to TFL....

and you're right about that guy being an idiot.

But when I read your post the way it was written, I thought you were saying, "It doesn't matter because the .40 short is a wimpy round".

A tip when quoting someone is to use the quote button. This helps to separate what your posting and what someone your quoting posted.


Trade it off on a .45 or 9 or 10mm...

Your kind of an idiot. .40 cal is a 10mm and 9mm is .35 cal.

Again, Welcome and Hope this helps ya for the future.
