Blog: Why Does Everyone Hate .40 S&W?
by: Sam Lichtman
There’s no doubt about it—we gun guys like to argue. If you’ve been in the gun world long enough, you’ve witnessed and probably even participated in a few of the many holy wars pervading the community. Do you dial for elevation or hold over when shooting at range with a riflescope? Which platform is better, AR-15 or the AK-47? Are Glocks worth the hype or overrated? Be careful how you answer, for your response could land you in hot water with the regulars at your favorite local gun shop or range. Caliber wars have always been a particular favorite; the 9mm Parabellum fans and .45 ACP enjoyers are already well into their second century of debate with no clear end in sight, but no matter what, both cults can agree to hate .40 Smith & Wesson. Even people with no proverbial dog in the fight so enjoy cracking jokes at the .40’s expense that the round has become the firearm community’s agreed-upon punching bag. Why, though, does it have such a bad reputation? Does .40 S&W really deserve all the hate, or is it simply misunderstood?
First, let’s talk about why the .40 Smith & Wesson exists in the first place. Back in 1986, a group of FBI agents in South Florida attempted to apprehend a pair of heavily armed suspects; what should have been a routine felony traffic stop instead devolved into a long, brutal gun battle we now call the Miami-Dade shootout. Both suspects were shot several times early on in the gunfight but managed to fight through potentially lethal gunshot wounds, going on to kill two agents and wound five more. FBI leadership took this to mean that the standard-issue 9×19 and .38 Special +P had insufficient wounding capabilities and were due for replacement with something more likely to stop a suspect in one shot.

Do you love firearms and sharing your knowledge with other ladies? Have you wanted to volunteer more but are not sure where to go? NotMeCA is currently looking for additional ladies to volunteer their time and continue helping other women who come to us looking for help with their firearms journey.
Join NotMeCA Program Director Desi Bergman and learn what the role of an Ambassador consists of and how you can help. Hear from current Ambassadors and why they volunteer their time for NotMeCA.
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at firstname.lastname@example.org
