    Can't say I'm much of a Glock fan myself. I prefer 1911A1 - style handguns. That would be followed by SAA's. Plastic is WAY down the list.

    I prefer high capacity magazines, the 1911 holds 7 rounds, 8 if you put one in the chamber first. That just is not going to do much good in a lot of situations you would truly need a weapon for. I own a 9mm Taurus. I prefer it because I fired 9mm all those years in the Corps. When I practice and stay in shape I am a VERY good shot.

    I also have an M1 Carbine for close work that a hand gun just won't do and an M1 Garand 30.06 for the stopping power and that reach you might need farther than 200 yards. I should own a shotgun as well, but I do not like them.

    Of course at the moment I am a fat old slob that hasn't fired a weapon in 3 years, probably couldn't hit much past 10 feet in my condition.

    This argument is older than us, with no sign of letup. One, you can get 10 rd mags for 1911A1-style handguns. Have about 6 of them myself.

    As far as situations, I always have one (mag) in the weapon and a replacement. If I actually need more than 18 rounds, I probably need an M-16 instead of a handgun.:D

    I DO have a Browning Hi Power in 9mm. With me, it's more the style of the weapon than the size of the round. I DO have a preference to the 1911A1 style because that's what I started out with.

    I'm also a firm believer in the fact that with mag capacity topped out at 10, 10 rounds of 45 ACP semi-jacketed HPs are better than 10 rds of 9mm JHPs.

    BTW ... your M1 is 30-06 and not .308 (7.62 mm)?

    YES, I have a WW2 M1, that was the round it fired, the .308 came much later and is a modification. Though I think during testing in the 30's they may have tested both rounds.

    I only own one 1911 - a Springfield TRP - but it's by far my favorite handgun (other than the S&W K22 that my grampa gave me - the sentimental value for that one is immeasurable).

    I'm currently looking to purchase a Colt Delta Elite - really craving some 10mm action :eusa_drool:

    What is the appeal of the 10mm?
