Default Im in love with .40, but 9mm is stupid easy to shoot

I'm a .40 guy. My Sig p226 is in .40/.357. Say what you want about it of course, but to me, it just seems like such a good middle of the road round. More energy on average than 9mm, more velocity than .45. I am trying to help my girl pick out a personal defense pistol-which is not going well haha. She hates 9mm. It kicks too much she says. She is afraid to pull the trigger. So we are hunting for some .380 pistols with no thumb safety....

Anyway, in the course of doing all this, I stumbled across a very beat up Springfield EMP in 9mm. That gun shot pretty well! It was like.... Throwing rocks at paper really. I *personally* do not feel like 9mm is for me. But man. They sure are easy shooters. If we lived in a free state where we could have 15+ rounds I'd maybe make the switch. But here in Kommiefornia, I just can't justify it. And yes. Shot placement. That's a thing. But having been under serious duress before (actually been shot at) I have a hard time imagining you're every going to get a perfect shot.

Please don't flame me. I'm young and stupid lol. But do voice your opinions.

Nothing wrong with 40... I like 40, 45, and 10mm but I do have a cz in 9mm that the wife like because she can shoot good with it. I told her she can have that, But since I like bigger bullet for stopping power I choose those over 9mm. Nothing wrong with 9mm... Again since I have glocks, Xd, and Cz with that being said I upgrade my glocks with a heaver spring up to 20lbs just 2 or 3 lbs from stock and recoil feel like 9mm which now my wife can shoot all the cal. Anyhow she has a hard time sliding the slide back because of the spring but after awhile of breaking in, it's good to go.

IMHO, you posted in the wrong forum.
