40SX said:My first compact was the 9 after shooting it and the 40 compact at Smith & Wesson Days at my local gunshop/range. I would have bought the .40 that day but they didn't have it in stock. About two weeks latter I found a 40 compact at another gunshop I frequent. I love them both. The 9 compact is great to put holes in paper all day and the 40 compact is great if you want to carry. I'm still waiting on the .357 compact, I love that round.
dblagent said:I have decided on the .40, I know 9 can be just as good, but I agree that it is harder to find a poor .40 round. I have my carry permit and that too is a factor, plus I have a 9mm already. Thanks for the suggestions. I also like the thought of being able to try the .357 round too. .40 it is!
dblagent said:Well, I am giving up and getting a M&P compact I think. I kept waiting for the 9c to hit $399 at Buds and then when it did I started thinking about the 40c. I'm still trying to decide, I have a CZ p-01 9mm that I love, was going to get a slightly smaller 9. I have never shot a .40, though I have shot a lot of .45 and 9mm. I am not recoil shy, but on one had keeping it all 9mm would be nice, then there is that nice powerful .40...... I checked ammo prices and there is not that big of a difference in price, only like $5-6 more for 100 rounds of .40.
I'll decide soon enough I expect!
