After having a lock on LEO firearms for only 15 years... I see those worthless police trade in guns flooding the market, but who would want them because they are obsolete. I bet no one buys them at all... It is so hard to find 40S&W ammo in the store. There are only about 8 choices at my local WM, 15 choices at most sporting goods stores, and only thousands of choices online... In fact, you would think it would have way fewer choices than 81 at Midway. It is so unpopular there that it is 4th in the number of offerings behind the best cartridges ever: 9mm Luger, 38 Special, and 45 ACP. Most handgun manufacturers only chamber their fullsize, compact, and some subcompact handguns in the caliber... Some of those foolish manufacturers even chamber PCC's in the caliber. Who in the world buys those?... Nobody likes it anymore... that is for sure. In fact, any day now, Smith and Wesson will probably make an announcement apologizing that they even thought about shortening a 10mm to make it easier to shoot... They will probably also apologize for fitting the caliber in a frame size that should be only reserved for the blessed 9mm... I also heard that someone is buying back all the 40S&W handguns to de-mil so that no one will ever remember it ever again... I'm so glad that I never jumped on this flash in the pan caliber. Come on! Can you believe that it's a modern pressure caliber where it heaviest bullets still have an expansion threshhold greater than 10 yards! Some of those bullets with the snappy recoil probably expand at 50 yards also. Who would want that? I'm so glad that I don't get confused with all the ammo choices that provide expansion and penetration between 12-18".... As for me, I shoot 147gr 9mm and it's the best ever. My gun is going to last so much longer than a comparable 40S&W because the laws of physics do not apply to my opinions or the strength of my recoil spring. I get it. Headlines grab attention, but this rhetoric is tiring. It's the monthly hate on 40 thread! It is kind of funny that no one asks if these calibers are dead: 357 Maximum 455 Webley 9x23 Largo 45 Win Mag 22 Jet Seriously...Try to find any sort of significant handguns by a major manufacturer or ammo listings more than one page on your computer screen.
