Do you still carry the .40?
« on: February 12, 2017, 10:51:16 AM »
I hear a lot of nonsense that the .40 is dying.... true or false? I carry my Glock 27 still to this day.

.
I don't "carry" a .40 but my nightstand pistol is a G24 w/a 21rd magazine inserted.  also have an STI Tactical SS in .40 - I believe that .40 is my 2nd favorite pistol round (of those that I have)

was behind a LEO at the market the other day and asked what caliber he was carrying - he said his dept issued glocks in .40 caliber (don't know if he was Conroe City PD or Montgomery County)

It's probably going to take a bit of a ding in popularity if it's true the FBI (and by extension the police) are going to switch back to 9MM from .40S&W, but I'd say it's here to stay.

Never have carried .40 but still have my .40 M&P C.O.R.E. for USPSA, though have been shooting my 9 Pro instead as I'm just so much faster and more accurate with it.

My main carry pistol is a Walther PPS in .40

My main nightstand pistol is a Beretta 96 Brigadier (.40)

I like the .40 and I don't care if it's popular or used by police or law enforcement. 

I also like .45ACP and have several pistols which fire it.
And we all know how unpopular those became when the .mil dropped the caliber.

I carry my 40 S&W Legion 229 all the time. Sweetest shooting 40 I have ever owned. And as far as it dying? Please

They said that about the 38 super and 10mm as well and they are quite well represented in the competition community.

I have 2 in 40. I carry my Px4 plenty.  The 40 isn't going anywhere.
