Default Your opinion on .40 S&W

I think its over hyped and a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. it has sharper, snappier recoil than a .45 with less stoppin power. it is unconfortable to shoot, when a .45 is quite pleasant at the same weight. If you want compact carry guns, go 9mm, contrary to some belief it won't bounce off people s chests and you can control the recoil way better. A federal hst +p in 9mm is about equal to a .40 in mosts gel tests and by muzzle energy. If you want capacity, 9mm, power, .45, the .40 just cant fit in. Not to mention the hih pressure levels (pretty much maxed out) are not that great for your gun if you shoot a lot. Thats my opinion, yours?
