I'm not sure when this will happen but it's bugging me as if I was heading to the gunshop right now!




I already own two M&P40s, that are my sons (16 & 14) USPSA limited division guns that have been somewhat tweaked for competition. For those I have 8 mags, 4 for each, and I just received an extra two from the S&W offer.



Well, those are my kids guns. I need one for me!
If I get another 40, I'd only have to load for one caliber and I'd ipso facto have 4 mags for that one, since I already have two spares. However, I'd love to have a 45! The 45 would make an awesome PDW and even a good Limited-10 gun. I could even use it as my production division gun, although shooting 45's in that division is not the wisest alternative.



I know what you're going to say... Buy both! Well, I wish I could and maybe I will, but it will take a long time to accomplish. Money is a little tight right now.



So... what would you do? If it was you, how would you solve this dilemma?



Please help!

To be honest, I would get the .45. I don't have one, although I would like to. Besides, you can always shoot your boys' .40's anyway, right?

A light load in a 45 on the M&P chassis woul work well in production. I still like the 40 though!

I've had a several Glock 40's in all models and have recently switched to the S&W.45 for duty use. This gun is easier to qualify with and is therefore more fun to shoot. If it proves as durable as my Glocks I'll be more than satisfied.

Get the 40. Everything 45 is a bit more expensive, brass, bullets, powder (bigger charge).

And swapping out for large primers is a pain. 3 MP40s at a match means more spare parts, ammo and mags.



Plus, when your boys out shoot you, you won't have the excuse that you're shooting a different gun.

And I already have all those mags... Made up my mind and I'll get another 40 first. Then, if $$ allows, I'll get a 45 just to have it.
