I never meant to imply that they were all bad reasons, just a list of possible reasons.

For my part, in addition to .40 cal, I also have a .22lr conversion kit for the same receiver, because the ammo is so much cheaper and it gives me '2 for 1'. The .22lr is good for target practice, I would never use it for home defense.

Others disagree about that, but I want to STOP a bad guy, not just sting him.
