Appeal to Survivalists

The .40 S&W is popular among the prepared for several reasons. The first is that it offers greater stopping power than the 9mm, while maintaining more manageable recoil and a lower price than the .45 ACP. The second is that it is the standard issue round for many law enforcement agencies.
