Catalog Number: KSR40 | Model Number: 3470 | Caliber: .40 S&WBelieve it or not, I'm not a fan of .40S&W. It's the only major self-defense pistol caliber I don't have after briefly owning one. IMHO the ballistics are not enough better than 9mm to put up with the slapping, twisting torque of the recoil. I'm not particularly recoil sensitive, loving to shoot hot 9mm +P, .357 Sig, 10mm, .45 ACP, .38 Special+P, .357 Magnum, .327 Magnum, .44 Special and .44 Magnum. But I just didn't like .40.

So I quickly traded the one and only .40 pistol I ever purchased for a compact 9mm. But if you like .40s, this new Ruger will most likely be a good candidate to add to your arsenal. Have fun.
