.40 caliber. Basically, our firearms instructor was given the task of choosing a semi-auto for us to transition into after we retired our old .357 mags. After much research, he decided the best option for us would be the .40 cal. Since then, we've been through several different .40s the latest being the H&K Model P2000. I know a lot of people prefer Glocks but the H&K fit our budget and performance constraints.

Well, we don't know anything about you and I'm thinking this discussion should be in an LEO Only forum. Just my opinion.

.45


Because they don't make a .46?  Ok, how's this?  I shoot it well, and it gets the job done.  I've never felt under gunned by not having as much ammo as the other guys with 40s.  I know my particular load performs well.

Tim.. I do agree that this should be LEO only. Isn't that possible to do?  Doc

Problem is, they OP isn't a verified LEO and would have trouble following the thread. Personally, I don't see  problem sharing cursory information without too much detail. Everyone knows we carry guns - some big,some bigger. As long as we don't divulge the secret handshake...

Point well taken, Nick. That being said, 9mm because that's what my Department issues.

Glock 22, not a fan of glock, but since that's what the agency issues that's what I carry.  Off duty I carry a 45...

When it comes to caliber a hand gun is a hand gun is a hand gun.   None of the usual rounds 9mm, .40, .45,.38, or even the mystical .357 sig (9mm magnum)  are really very stand out from the herd when it comes to "stopping power".  What ever you have the key is training, moving, and cover.

40,38,357,45,9mm,10mm,357 sig or 223, 308, 50cal BMG, 336 Lapua. It doesn't matter! Any of these placed well makes a perp wake up dead.
