Gun Fact: Subsonic .40 S&W

Those of you who are having trouble finding subsonic 9mm ammunition or hate paying the price for .45 ACP might be well served to look for a .40 S&W firearm. Assuming you have a compatible suppressor, all commercial 180 grain .40 S&W loadings will be subsonic and will suppress better than 115 and 124 grain 9mm ammunition. 180 grain .40 S&W ammunition is also easier to find than 147 or 158 grain (or Federal’s new 124 grain) 9mm subsonic loads and is usually cheaper than 230 grain .45 ACP.
