A GLOCK 27 and a Ruger LCP II make up this pocket dump. I’m guessing the G27 is the main carry and the LCP II is the BUG. This one makes me nostalgic because my first carry gun many years back was a 27. Yes, I know, it’s a .40 S&W and why would I do that?
Well…although I wouldn’t make the same carry choices today I made back then – the exception being carrying AIWB, something I continue to do – the .40 S&W still has its place in the gun world.
Like it or not it does have a ballistic edge over 9mm. In fact, I have a couple .40 S&W competition guns I also use for hog hunting, something I won’t do with 9mm. Today it’s mostly seen as a cartridge for competition (I’m not the only one who uses it on hogs, though). It isn’t common for carry anymore and, in fact, seems to be falling by the wayside rater significantly. Kind of a bummer. Nostalgia and all.
What do you guys think of the .40 S&W?
