Yesterday I noticed a Cooper quote that said something about the .40 S&W was for a 9MM user who couldn't take the recoil of a .45. I am trying to remember the wording but can't. Can anybody help?

Dunno, but thinkCol Jeff referred to .40 as "10mm lite".

He's also pretty dubious about the whole "too much recoil" claim.

:scrutiny: And what's wrong with a 9mm user, I'd like to know... :scrutiny:

These freakin' gun nut's and their - *ahem*- caliber envy. :uhoh:

Dont get me wrong, i like the 9mm, fun rnd, but i heard somewhere that its good to carry as big a rnd as you can handle well, and for me that falls under something a little hotter, such as .357/.44 spl/.45 acp. i actualy think thats a cooper quote, though i cant back that up.

Check out his Commentaries in THR library. If you wade through all of them you may find what you want. They're interesting reading too.

I also remember him saying that a 22 could be a good self defense round....something like a 22 to the eye socket being hard to beat......I on the other hand would rather be shot by......nothing......9mm or 45....:cool:
Besides I always thought 45's were for the old guys.....;)

Some folks call it the ".40 Short & Wimpy."
