Question 40c or 45c?

Yeah, forgot what thread I was in earlier...old-timers CRS.

I think I want the compact M&P. looking at the 40c or 45c.
Since i have the SD40VE and I am liking it, I may just spring a little more $$ and get the M&P45 full-size...I know you jokers have some thoughts, so let me hear them.

I also am thinking about the M&P22 to complement my little M&P22LR AR...

Can I be biased toward the 40c even though I haven't shot it yet?

I'd say get whatever is easier to find ammo for......

Sure! Either would be fine with me as I like shooting 40 and 45. I have plenty of 9mm pistols...As for the ammo the friggin 22 is an elusive ghost.

We had to rearm the sheeple, now they can catch up.

no problems with either, the only thing id worry about is ammo...I have 2 40 calibers and am able to find ammo locally, however I never see .45...I guess it depends on your demographics....

Don't ask me, cuz I'll say get one of each !!!

Around here you don't have a big choice on .45 ammo but it can be had and it's not rationed when they get it in since the shelves don't empty out in 5 minutes when they get it. Where as .40 Ammo you're limited to 1 box when you find it. 9mm and .22LR you next to never find unless you get lucky and find a 50rd box of .22LR and also limited to one box. Big Whoop. Load my 25rd mag 2x. Better than none at all though.

Get what leo's carry most in your area. 45acp makes bigger hole than 40. When the s--t hits the fan you will have to use what you take. Cover all bases.
