This here is the .40 Caliber Semi Automatic
Handgun. This weapon firearm was introduced some years not to replace the 9MM which was
commonly used by law enforcement and military but this one was brought in to augment or
give a little bit more stopping power so to speak for handguns in any encounter that law
enforcement or military may encounter. The round is basically between a .45 Caliber round
and a 9MM millimeter round. The .40 Caliber falls in the middle of it and it has again
more stopping power than a 9MM but not quite as much as a 45. This type of weapon I have
here has a slide which performs the action for the round to be fired. We have a front
sight, rear sight, hammer, the trigger and we have the magazine well where the rounds
actually go. This particular weapon can come in a smaller frame and a larger frame. This
one here is considered the medium frame. This weapon here is very popular amongst law enforcement
and military. Again for reasons stated earlier, they had a little bit more stopping power.
There are several different brands of .45 Caliber handguns out there but the round stays
the same as far as the stopping power and the velocity depending upon what ammunition
you would use. This weapon will be good for home defense or personal carry as well as
any one of the applications I mentioned earlier.
