    Not always, glock 19 compared to a glock 23, same size gun, 9mm holds two more rounds, less recoil, premium ammo makes the .40's 1mm size difference negligable. And cheaper 9mm ammo makes for more practice which allows faster follow up shots and greater accuracy, which makes 9mm > .40 cal.

    All you guys with real big guns are trying to compensate for something.

    Well, they all hold 10 rounds now, so it's kind of a moot point.

    By the way, anyone know where I can get high capacity magazines for a USP?

    You can still easily get hicaps for most anything though.

    I have always bought 9mms though simply because the price of ammo allows me to afford more practice.

    But you can still get hicaps for pretty much anything, as long as you are willing to pay for it. I have two factory 15 round mags for my glock 19 and I love it. If the AWB sunsets in a year, there will be plenty of cheap hi-cap mags for everyone once again.

    As for Hi-caps for a USP, try Germany :fawk:

    seriously, I don't know, have you tried gunbroker.com yet?

    The USP was introduced post-ban (1995). There arent any old, pre-ban parts for it...

    Maybe Europe is my only hope.

    I'm partial to Beretta's, so 9 mm it is.

    There are some pre-Sept '94 9mm and .40 mags out there. No .45 though.

    But Beretta does make .22, .25, .32, .380, 9mm, .40 and .45 cal. pistols. But there 9mm's are still the bomb.

    I like the 9 and 22, cheap ammo, and a small kick for a big gun. (I'm a little guy so firing desert eagle 50 cals isn't exactly my kind of target shooting)

    Any gun will put somebody down if the shots are placed correctly.

    I'm at least as accurate with my G30 as I am with any 9mm I own or have fired. .45 > 9mm
