Handguns / Re: Why I like 45 ACP Striker Fired handguns.
« Last post by TNFrank61 on Today at 07:12:27 AM »
I'd still rather have that big ol' 45 caliber slug rather than a smaller 9mm if I got attacked by some big guy jacked up on crack. Sure, a modern hollow point will expand, most of the time but for those times when it doesn't then you're left with a much smaller hole(so less bleed out) with a 9mm vs a 45 ACP.  I also would rather have something without external safeties so I can just pull my pistol and go to work rather then having to snick something off to start shooting.
Also, yep, as a general rule you use your pistol to fight your way to your rifle(or better yet a shotgun) but for most of us it's just not practical to have a rifle close by to fight to.  When you're in WalMart at 3am getting milk I doubt that your rifle is anywhere close enough to fight your way to. Even if it's in the car/truck that's still a pretty long trek so you'll end up fighting with you handgun to win and not your rifle/shotgun.

I've never liked striker fired pistols in 45ACP  :shrug I shoot Glock 21s okay but the grip is a little too big for my hand. I had a XD in 45ACP that I bought thinking I'd like but no bueno.

I'm certainly not a 1911 fanboy nor a Glock fanboy either. I don't like telling people what guns or caliber they should carry. You can figure out what combination you like but it doesn't necessarily follow that's what I like. I'll tell you why I like what I use.

9mm vs 11mm we aren't talking a big difference here. With modern hollow points it's a moot point. I have no worries 124 grain 9mm Speer Gold Dots will do the job just like the 185 grain Speer Gold Dots in 45ACP will too.  If we are talking FMJ I'd go with a 1911.

Try shooting with the old suppressor and without a suppressor to see if there is any difference.

My pistol is used to fight to my rifle... I'll take my 18 rounds in my mp 9 of a spray and pray than the 11 in a mp45.. to get to my rifle that I know I'll hit with up to 200yrds with 1 round.... i am not as efficient with a pistol but I sure in the hell will produce my own covering fire getting to that rifle

I personally love my 3-15x scope seems to do everything I need very well but ultimately I will eventually own a 6-24x scope when I can afford it.

Opinions are opinions... I agree with everyone that's says carry what you feel is comfortable.. there are a bajillion YouTube people out there but I have yet to hear one say that...just because it's good for you doesn't mean it's good for me
Quoted for TRUTH!

What works for me, works for me...not everyone else nor do I expect it to. ;)

6-24 x50 does everything. thats the perfect scope that'd serve you well for all aspects. In Az theres so dense and so many open areas a 500 yard shot on a coyote or something is normal.

FFP is a good choice. thats all id own to

Do you have a cash price or strictly trade

I'm more interested in a trade but I'll send you a PM.
