Wow was the range packed today!!! Any way, I wanted to compare shooting a 40 cal and a 9mm. Both guns shot great. I have to two hand the SD40 to keep it on target (Remington 180grain FMJ),but the trigger pull probably has a lot to do with that....that and the kick. The M&P 9mm was one handed all the way (124gr Fed HST JHP). The SD40 is my night stand gun AND I am thinking maybe a SW SD9VE might be better. $282. at Buds and I put it on layaway.
