40 ain't going anywhere....

While it's not the hot new caliber anymore, the 40 is here to stay. Ruger has even released a new 40 carbine to match the 9mm they have had out a couple of years. The 40 is a versatile and powerful choice for home defense and in some ways the better choice over 9mm in places where magazine capacity is limited to 10. The switch back to 9mm has more to do with cost, controllability for less proficient shooters and an increase in effective loads. Nothing wrong with either 9 or 40 but 9mm is just more popular I think mostly due to cost of ammo. rc
