The .40 round served a purpose for a few years as an intermediate cartridge. Now as you said technology if the 9mm round plus capacity has out dated the .40.I have had an FFL 42 years. This is another example of the decline of .40 S&W popularity. Nothing wrong with the caliber, but 9mm ammo has been much improved and guns generally hold an extra round or two...with less recoil.
I now own more .40 caliber guns than 9mm guns.It was a great deal. I got the exact same thing @5906SW.
It's in excellent condition, looks to be barely fired, and the used mags were barely used.
Ignore the weak wristed .40 haters crapping up your thread above with old wives tales.
...way to go fellas. He was trying to pass along a good deal.
Shake your head all you want, it is a useless caliber so everyone with a brain dumped it. I haven't looked at .40 since about 2006 so I couldn't care any less what the FBI uses, I selected a better round all by myself. Now if we were face to face and you spew weak wristed blah blah blah, you... ..
I grabbed a couple of ten rounders for my 45 for 10 bucks each. Assuming they're in decent shape, that's a steal. The 9mm mags are gone.AIM SURPLUS has 40 caliber FS M&P LE Trade ins for $279.95. They also have M&P 15 rd. magazines for $13.95 each.
I ordered 4 magazines.
If you want either one you better go get them NOW!
If the left gets more power this coming election and they get a new mag cap ban to 10 rounds or an outright "Military / Police" caliber ban passed, the .40, .45, and .357 Sig will once again be the man stoppers of choice and prices will skyrocket
I just didn’t want to have another caliber to have to reload for, and never cared for the couple that I shot.
