    One is cheaper to feed and holds an extra round. The other makes bigger holes in paper targets. You choose.

    45 acp for me. Although I would not turn my nose up to a 40.

    45 just says :Merica to me.

    I dont know why, I do like my 45 acp revolvers and semi autos, but when I think 45 my mind goes to the 1911 first and the JHP second.
     
  6. Got both the JHC and JHP and like the 45 better. But that's just me.

    I have both, I prefer the .40, for no good reason other than the idea that .45 ACP should be in a 1911.

    that's a good enough reason.

    I will say that I do believe the JHP is the most trouble free pistol that hi point makes, followed by the CF380.

    The .40 is a fad. Don't waste your money on it. 10mm is making a comeback and will be its long-term replacement.

    Go with the .45.

    I had both at the same time and shot them together for comparison. I liked the 45 better but.....the 40 was more accurate. Couldn't decide for sure so sold them both. Then later bought another 45....lol !!!
