I'm curious as to the make and models of the .40's that you two shot.

The last .40 I shot was a Glock 22, testing it out. The frame was perhaps too light for the round to be fair, but I want a carry gun to be lighter of

I have never been all that accurate with .40's either for some reason. I'm fine with 9mm and .45 and .22 and even .38 but .40
