    That was awsome! And he's right, the .45 is an awsome handgun. As a gunner on a TOW vehicle, I carried one and I loved it. Just as I was leaving the Army in 1992 they were switching to the 9MM, but NOTHING will ever beat the M1911 which had been in the Army's arsenal since WWI.

    Wasn't one of the reason that this change was made an effort to standardize ammo with NATO forces?

    Yes that and because, frankly, they were just OLD. However, if we are going to have to fight alone anyway, does it really matter? Give the guys what works.
