Best 40 S&W CC

I have a few 40 S&W pistols:

The G27, 23 and 22.

I have a Keltec Sub 2000 (Sub 2K), G23 model. It is complementary to my pistols.

The 23 is the best compromise but the 27 is very compact. The Glock line does allow for flexibility.



The Beretta PX4 and CX4 May have that, also.

I pack around a G27 Gen4 all the time, can even slide it into my pocket if need be. Great gun.

Since you are set on the .40 S&W, I would say go with the Glock 27 as well. I don't know if Glock is going to release a 43 sized gun chambered in .40 S&W, but I doubt it seeing as the .40 S&W seems to be falling out of favor as of late.

Personally, I think it is a great round. It is hard to argue that a heavier and larger round, traveling almost as fast wouldn't do more damage. That's why the .45 acp is still around.

Hard to argue? Heck, we have that argument all the time!

My first suggestion would be a CZ but you'd have to fond one used as CZ doesn't make a .40 anymore.

Being the case another vote for the Shield. I have a mod 2 on .45 and really like that gun.

The walther PPS is an excellent suggestion.

Nice thing about the 22 and 23(27 also??), is with just a barrel, you can shoot 9mm also..
