.45 is just like 9mm but for adults, ya right, let the war begin

Lol i was messing with the poster above. .22 is a great round for plinking


#43

:slight_smile: yep


#44

Now that is one sexy gun.


#45

Try finding one of those correct handed!


#46

I might go back to carrying .45 someday, using my 9mm (124g ranger ) I put 4 shots in a coyotes shoulder and head. I wasnt very impressed with the 9mm there. I was out at my buddies place and the damn coyote was trying to eat his wives Chihuahua lol.


#47

What was the round you used, if I may so inquire? Speer LE 124/147 GDHP and Federal HST should be good to go. IMI and Prvi are excellent as well.


#48

Gdhp comes in 45 as well 200 grain with a charge of 6.8 ram zip does it quite well
Just with bigger holes!

In a 20 oz pistol I am concealing in my waist band or ankle holster I can get 10 rounds in my 9mm.

My Colt Officer’s ACP holds 7 .45 and weighs 34 oz.

Both have their place. But my EDC is the 9mm (S&W M&P 9 Shield w/MagGuts kits).

It’s not all about the size, is it?


#51

Kind of funny how lopsided their opinions are and Bill Wilson preferring 9mm was pretty shocking.


#52

9mm only. One love!)


#53

I’m kinda surprised that so many pros can unanimously be wrong. (Kidding). I am and always have been a .45 guy. Kinda like your first love. But the arguments do make sense. Though here is Ca the capacity difference is minimal since we’re capped at 10. I guess it’s time to reevaluate. But I’m an old dog and this is a new trick.


#54

There is nothing wrong with the.45 acp. Its just 9mm has alot of R&D into it and is no longer a wimpy round.


#55

Get a desert eagle in .50ae, it holds 7+1. Problem solved.


#56

I find a .500 magnum with a 2.5" barrel is ideal


#57

Well that would be my preferred EDC if I didn’t have to wear two belts and suspenders. :cowboy_hat_face:


#58

I tried carrying my desert eagle for the day one time. That was more than enough for me.


#60

I just did some horse trading with my tiger striped desert eagle Monday night. It was mint, never fired. Sat in my safe for 6 years since I bought it & value wasn’t really increased since kahr took over and cheapened them. So in return I got Beretta m9a3, m&p 2.0, 2000rounds 9mm ammo, & leather galco holsters for both. Got back more than than I had invested so I’m happy. I’ll just miss pulling it out of the safe to pet it once a month lol

Bs ask your girl? And if you talk with (practical)"experts"in the end size matters mass matters velocity matters. Carry both sometimes my xds with five rounds gdhp 200-45acp hides better than 15-1in nine and a bigger gun makes me tired,health issues. Depends where im going what im doing season ect, sometimes i wonder when im not looking are the nines and the fortyfives in the gun safe dukeing it out,so much hostility!

Practical experts? Those are some of the top experts ,period.
