Just perusing the classifieds here, and other sites - it seems like a LOT of .40SW pistols are being offered up for sale/trade - and those looking for trades are going for 9's or .45's. Haven't seen as many 9mm or .45ACP guns up. Wonder how much is driven by ammo costs vs 9mm, and how much by the way .40's shoot vs the 9s and .45's? I'll admit the .40 isnt' my favorite round by any stretch, but not my least fav either, at least in certain guns. I think my favorite .40 that I've ever owned was a Kel Tec P-40 (think P-11, but in .40SW). Next fav .40 was my first ever Glock - a 3rd gen G22. The ones I've had since then just haven't been as fun to shoot.
