1911 45ACP or 9x19mm? semi-custom?


#1

I have some 1911s in my collection. have 45s and have 9mm. My personal opinion: Dan Wesson top line (Valor, Specialist, Bruin, Discretion) are the Best Money-Quality choice. I will place Springfield TRP and Smith & Wesson Performance Center next. Has recently purchased some BUL (Israel) semi-custom (special order)… . Very interesting 1911s. do not have a long record of use yet. however, so far - very impressive guns (all 9mm). and personally, I prefer 9x19 (not because of price, but bcs of Fun)

If you prefer 9 go 9. Or you maybe should look into 38 super?


#3

have tried 38 Super - do not like it. today’s 9mm Luger is good enough for any job.


#4

I like both,like the capacity advantage of the 9mm better.


#5

Then go with 9. It sounds like the best course of action.


#6

already… have 3 in 45ACP, and 7 in 9x19… yet :slight_smile:


#7

10mm? (This is to just hit 20.)


#8

no… do not like huge calibers. even in revolvers… 357 M is my maximum


#9

357 Sig is probably a good idea if you’re okay with a bottle necked carriage.


#10

have tried it as well. it is very similar to 10mm… not mine.


#11

To snappy or just to much recoil?


#12

I get tired after 100-150 rounds of 45. I could shoot 9mm all day long :slight_smile:


#13

I’d probably just go 9mm then. That or possibly the redneck love child of 9 and 45. 40.


#14

40 is shorten 10mm. However, FBI Academy’s research shows it is much less effective, then 9. And they have suggested to LEO switch from 40 to 9. Easier to make a “correct” shot, more ammo and as a result: more chances to stay alive.

I know it was one of my bad jokes. Well I guess it’s 9mm then.
