Just getting started looking now. Won't be buying for a while but since the DHS is buying 450mi rnds of 40 it's time to look at getting a 40. I tend to be able to point shoot more naturally with a single stack pistol but I like being able to soot in SA and I do like having a rolling block safety. I will want to carry it regularly. So 740, PX4 storm or something else? Love my TCP so the 740 is a natural.

Wish the ranges around here had a better selection of rentals.

I love my Taurus PT940, it is a nice size and light weight for a metal pistol. However it is discontinued so can be a little tough to find.

For me a 740 is not large enough to handle a 180 grain .40 S&W comfortably. I am 5'11 and 220 pounds with medium sized hands. Now if your in shape and are bigger than me then absolutely go for the 740. If not I would like to suggest the compact Stoeger Cougar 8040. They are basically the same as the PX4, and Beretta Cougar, just aluminum framed instead of polymer. They are also about $120.00 less than the PX4. I know they sell them at Academy maybe you could check one out, handle it and see how it fits? Cant wait to find out what you end up with.

I am a huge fan of the .40 caliber. I've been shooting it since it first came out, and have no complaints. All of the suggestions are great, especially the Stoeger Cougar -- it's a lot of pistol for the money. May I also suggest the Ruger SR40. I bought one a little while back, and it is a tremendous pistol for the money as well. It sells within $50 of the Cougar.

One thing though. Are you interested in a more traditional DA/SA or striker fired? My SR40 is striker fired, and although very light in pull, it does have a different feel compared to a more traditional trigger system.
