Back when I was a police officer, I carried a Ruger Security Six 357 Magnum. As an Army Officer I carried a 1911 .45. Not sure which I liked better. About a year ago, I decided to buy a new handgun. Was torn between the two. Should I go a revolver, or a pistol? My daughter suggested a 40 cal pistol, but I just kinda shrugged it off. I did commit to at least looking at a 40. At the gun store (Johnson’s Sportng Goods) , I looked at both a 357 and the 45. But when the salesman showed me the Ruger SR40, I bought it! Probably a good choice.
