    Friggen A Bro.. When those Moro monkeys were attacking our boys, Philippines. What stopped em dead in their speak chucking asses, friggen A. the .45..
    When those nazie scum were hitting our trenches in WWI, what stopped em, dams right, the .45.. Hell yah.
    You hit a commie in the torso with a .45, that commie is done..
    I like the 200 grain round nose.. That is what Browning wanted to start with..
    Good penetration and shock and awe..
    Every American should have a .45.. One blast from the bad boy will stop a lion dead in its track..
    I bounced a .45 off a Grizzle bears head in my driveway.. SOB was in my garbage. Never came back.
    .45. For America, for Americans.. Best gun ever..

    10mm is my pick. 45 acp is a real close second.

    What I like about the .45ACP is that this bullet is already the diameter that you hope your 38s and 9MMs will expand to. I don't think that hollowpoints are needed in the 45.

    Damn right.. The .45 is capable of stopping a freight train.. Go through an engine block like a hot knife through butter..
    Hell no, do not use hollow points.. Not made for that.. When John Wayne in conjunction with Browning invented the .45.. Oh hell yah... Your talking the best weapon ever made. Ever..
    One round from a .45, stops an Abrams tank.. Got to hit it in the side where the armor is weak.. Hell yah..
    Any American who does not own a .45, is a commie..
    Add: When you shoot from you balcony, as suggested by Joe Biteme..Your shotgun don't finish them. Bingo..Break out the .45.. Job done.. Biteme says so.

    There is no denying the .45 is one heck of a round and the 1911 is a inspired design.

    How John Browning dreamed up the gun is a mystery divine.

    That's why I got a High-Point...don't laugh, .45 carbine. One size fits all. A red dot and +P's in the carbine and I'm good to go.

    I have always held the most effective caliber is the one in your hand.

    Meaning if you aint gonna carry it cause its too big then you aint got shit.

    That said, I have seen 22 kill and 44 mag fail. Pick what you will carry and not leave at home and practice, practice practice.

    a 9mm to the head makes a hell of a mess. as does a 32...


    I would rather have a 22 derringer in the hand than a 45 at home...
