Get both if you want, you will sooner or later! the C-9 is a bit cheaper to feed and it's a little easier to find 9mm, at least here in IL. it is!!!

45's are fricken huge though...LOL
No doubt, my JHP .45 weighs a ton but man it shoots GREAT.

I've also got the Uncle Mikes/Butler Creek slipon grip on my C9 and I love it. I haven't gotton to shoot it yet but the feel of it is soo much better than without it. If you get one make sure you get the Large size. It was tough to get it on but if you spray a little windex on the inside of the rubber grip it slides right on there and the windex will dry out.

If you are new enough to firearms that you can't decide based on the merits/demerits of the calibers themselves (rather than the accessories), then I'd suggest the 9mm as a beginner's pistol.

Im not all that new to guns i own a few rifles but only one pistol and it is a walter p22 and i want something a little bigger for recreational shooting but i think i am leaning more to 9mm so just for the cheaper ammo. I have shot both 9mm and 45 acp. and about the 40 S.W. i dont know much about the price of ammo and i want a 1911 but i dont got the money for a nice one right now so i thinking if i got bigger then a 9mm that i would go with a 45 so that i like keeping alot of the same calibers it cuts down on the different types of ammo i have to buy

$160 for a JCP 40 is a good price. I got the JCP first also. Then numerous others. 995's, C9 another JCP. Getting a JHP 45 since 45ACP is now about the same price as 40 S&W in my area. And found someone who reloads 45 ACP. Waiting on the 4095TS and 4595TS.

The .40 S&W is a great choice. I have not had any problem with mine.
Th .40 round has more energy (faster) than a .45 & the extra stopping power over 9mm.

So that's where they sent all the 9mm.
