Switching over to .40 for a while

The past few years, I've been shooting a lot of 9's because they were inexpensive and I don't like loading the little buggers in my hot sub tropical garage. Even if I did want to reload them, I must have all of 3 dozen once fire 9mm brass, and component availability is near zero.

In comes the .40. I have a furnace, sizing dies, lube, brass, and maybe 2k loaded. So, I'm moving over to .40 again and shelving my 9's till the ammo craziness goes away.

I have 4 pistols in .40 and have purchased lots of ammo when cheap. One example: on a local gun forum back in February I bought 850rds of various, factory fresh .40S&W ammo (450 JHP, 400 FMJ) for $130! Haven't gotten around to shooting much of it...but very glad I have it.

I like 40 S&W.
Glock 23 is minimum EDC. (sometimes a Glock 22 or 35)
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
