    Damn fun.
    Great time at the range today.
    Freaking place was packed.
    Good to see so many Americans arming themselves. Great people. True Americans.

    People talk about the 9mm and how ergonomic it's supposed to be and how it holds more rounds.

    I think they feel kind of awkward to hold with minimal stopping power compared o a .45

    Whereas, the 1911 feels like a perfect extension for your hand and the stopping power is second to none.

    I've had the pleasure of firing one on my father-in-law's estate. It's a truly formidable warhorse. Why the U.S. military adopted the 9mm I'll never know. Some Congressmen must've had stock in Beretta, because the 1911 had plenty of life left in it before it was retired.

    In my opinion, it was part of the PC liberal social engineering for the U.S. military.

    Most women and gays wouldn't able to handle and shoot a .45 effectively.

    So it was replaced with a metrosexual weapon.......... :cool:
