5.56, since you seem to know your stuff, I have a question:
If you could choose any handgun to outfit the American armed forces, which would it be?

FBI is switching to 10mm auto, just FYI.
I like .45 cal ACP. I've shot it, even though I weigh 108 soaking wet, the recoil is manageable and the round is well-proven.

After the Miami Shootout, the FBI wanted a better caliber than the 9x19mm but they didn't want a .45ACP because of it's size. THey went with the 1omm Auto. Problem was, most folks couldn't handle the 10mm Auto. So the FBI loaded it lighter. Hence a load called 10mm Auto Lite or 10mm Auto FBI.
Well, S&W took the 10mm Auto cartridge with the FBI powder load and saw all of that emepty space. So they cut down the casing and BANG! The .40S&W was born.
THe FBI dropped the 10mm Auto like a cold and went with the .40S&W and the GLOCK 22 & GLOCK 23 (Funny fact, GLOCK beat S&W in marketing a pistol chambered in .40S&W.)
