Sure there isn't much traffic here, but that just means it's easier to keep up with all the posts.

No!! I don't think so Steve
I'm just getting back into the computer, and would miss seeing your green face.
Still have both my 40's, and out of all my pistols they would be the last to leave.
22's, 9's, 40's, and 45's and I like them all.
I don't have the equipment to reload, but I may have to one of these days. But I have been saving all my brass. I just can't seem to get the primers out of those pesky 22's.

See ya later

Bought a 23 and a 27 based on info I read here. Surprises me that more posts aren't here since the 40 is supposed to be so popular, but the nine clubs aren't much different. Keep it open for a goood exchange of info.

p.s. Sportsman's Guide has Federal Classic 155's early generation hydra shock for $59.99 for 250. $56 for club members. They are marked "not for law enforcement" but they shoot extremely accurate in my 23.

The 40 club is good to keep around. Keep in mind most of the people that shoot the 40 S&W are to busy shooting and buying ammo they are limited in the amount of time they have to post.

I agree with Koski. There are no glock 40s because they all Kaboomed. Can't imagine anyone buying a second one. Only reason I can think of to continue this club is to tell Kaboom stories and caution each other about quicker Kabooms if only one lead bullet goes off in those unsupported chambers. All posters here with un-Kaboomed 40s have NIB pistols and are trying to trade for a 9.

Fact: Glock 40 owners have a higher percentage of paranoia than any other caliber.

Address all replies to Koski.

No! No! No! The volume of negative replies to this thread validates the need to continue the .40 S&W club. Contrary to the opinions of some folks, the G23 and G27 are two of the highest rated carry guns, and are revered for their accuracy and reliability. The absence of complaints about the .40s may account for the dearth of threads, but that's a good thing.

I just bought another G22 yesterday.It's a fantastic caliber,the same size weapon as a 9mm with high capacity and balistics that mirror the 45acp,whats not to love about the 40cal:thumbsup:
LE agencies across the U.S. that switched to the 40cal have reported better results then the 9mm.

If you're gonna start closing dead forums for lack of traffic then start with the Niners.

At least there's a couple of active threads here on the .40 club the Niners is completely dead with nothing but a couple of stickies.


As mentioned if you don't like it don't come here.


.40 haters never seem to miss a chance to find some way to rag on it.

Jmott, for me "strong side". You never know when you might be on your belly, knees, etc. and in that position, cross draw is a tad difficult.

I don't think it is unpopular. In fact, among LE is one of the most common calibers. I have several 40's, but must admit 9mm is cheaper to shoot.

Why close the club that has the name of the best semi-auto pistol cartridge of all time on it?


:dunno:



Long live the .40 S&W! This round kicks ass! It's the 10mm that came to it's senses. It's everything you need and nothing you don't. It does what it does really well and has the street track record to prove it.

The reason the 9mm and .45 people hate it so much is because it takes the argument away from both sides!

Aside from the heaviest .45 loads, the .40 will do everything the .45 can do.

The 10mm people hate it because it's a 10mm with slightly less penetration and excessive penetration isn't something you want against two legged foes.


If the .40 is so bad why do the 9mm,.357 Sig, and .45 crowds always compare their cartridge to the .40? It sure sounds like it's the cartridge to beat because it's the cartridge to have. :whistling:


It's the .40 for me thanks!
