Sam - I highly doubt that if one is on the 'business end' of a firearm that it makes any difference if it was a .45 or a .40 S&W. Having had the experience, several times, of holding people at gun point, they are only too happy when it is all over. Some require a change of pants/underwear.Originally posted by SamColtFan:
Dsk pretty well covered it. I might add that if you're on the wrong end looking down the bore of a .45 it's a lot more intimidating than a .40 S&W.

I don't care what caliber it is. I really don't want to be looking down at the bore of any pistol if it's pointed at me!!
I don't know of anyone, that I know, who has stopped to ask a suspect if they were more scared because they were pointing a .45 at him/her.
Right on, Genghis! I'll go with the "easier to find 45 ACP brass" line!Originally posted by Genghis:
Heavy bullets for the 40 are light bullets for the 45. Heavy 40 cal bullets run 180 / 185 gr. Heavy bullets for 45 ACP run 230 / 250 gr.
Heavy bullets maintain velocity and energy longer than light ones.
'Sides . . . it's WAY easier to find 45 ACP brass on the ground after shooting.
