Getting a Taurus PT7XX Slim. Which caliber should I go with?

If the cost difference in ammo was nonexistent, which chambering of Tauru's PT700 Slim seriesl would you recommend I go with? Right now, I'm only considering the 9x19mm and the .40S&W.

The 709 holds one more round per magazine, and it would be slightly easier to go for follow up shots.

The 740.....well, it's a .40! :laughing :smack

For what it's worth, my currently EDC's (when I'm not in school:() are 1911's chambered in .45 ACP.

(My defensive carry ammo will be Hornady Critical Defense.)

I've got until the end of the month to make up my mind, and I believe you guys could help me choose the compromise that fits me best. Feel free to ellaborate on your choice, and thanks in advance! :thumsup

My 2 EDCs are the XD40SC for when I carry on my belt IWB and the PT709 Slim when I pocket carry. I've never shot the 740 to compare, so I can't provide first hand experience on recoil and follow-up shots. My XD40SC is a pleasure to shoot...but it's an entirely different gun.
