Never could understand why having "one of each" caliber is such a great thing.


I have never owned nor ever will own a .40 caliber anything, nor a .357 Sig, etc.


You already have all your bases covered with 9mm and 45acp.
The popularity of those calibers ensures easy and cheap availability, and those two calibers ear easily capable for any self defense or target work.
I prefer to buy more pistols that chamber those two rounds than to clutter up my safe with pistols that require me to have to stockpile all sorts of various calibers of ammo.


Not telling anyone what to do... it's your money.

I'm just giving a personal perspective and explaining why.

If you have a G23 a 40 S&W you can get a 9mm and a 357 sig bbl. With the 9 mm you need different mags. I like this because I have seen ammo impossible to get a couple times. So what you gain is ammo choice when limited. So no matter you call. choice having a gun with ammo is better than having a paper weight

About how many rounds of premium ammo are you stocking?

I've got this thing that is starting to gnaw at me. Is $250 of .40 ball in the locker more useful than $250 dollars worth of 9mm Federal HST. Or to put it this way would you be happier with 20 9mm or 50 .40 given a budget?




45-70 Gov't you can rely on

With the way 49 s&w ball is made , bullet shape so it fits in the mag . It is a pretty good self defense round. One more reason the 9 ain't the better of the two.
