I know there was a thread with this same subject but it was old and did not answer the one question I had. I know the .40 has more power and the 9mm is cheaper ammo but one question I have is does one have better distance and accuracy than the other? I was told 9mm rounds have more velocity and doesn't that equal distance, I'm not sure that is fact though. I'm new to guns so forgive me if I am asking a stupid question. I kind of lean toward the 9mm just for the price and availability of ammo.

Thanks

I've found no accuracy difference between the two rounds. There are some ballistics charts floating around here and other places online, just use the search function here or google it. As to the price, target loads run 9.47 for 50 9mm to 12.47 for .40, so yeah there is a difference in per round price. Pistol rounds are not distance rounds, the drop on either round will be quite large over say a hundred yard shot, but in a SD situation it's a moot point...at least I hope, unless you are attacked by some space alien with incredibly long noodle arms.

No stupid questions man, just stupid people ;)
