Both! The synergy of a combat effective pistol and caliber wielded by a man that knows what he's doing!


I think you missed the spirit in which my comment was made. Did you not see the first post and the green smiley face I included?

Every thread doesn't have to lead to a serioys debate or argument.

Wow, was not intended to cause a serious debate or argument!


My apologies. I guess it's common to answer a rhetorical question that's intended as a joke in your neck of the woods.

My rep said he would consider supporting HB560. https://www.texasfirearmscoalition.com/ ... since-2007

If he would hadn't run out of ammo he may have gotten the second guy also. Just goes to show you the 45 or die guys never think they will miss to justify having only 6rds.

Interesting conclusion, especially since it's easy to see his slide never locked back, which it would if he ran out of ammo. How did you deduce that?

Around the 14-15 second mark it looks like he could possibly be reloading.

If he didn't reload, maybe he does have a 9mm 1911 :eek6 I'm not a 1911 guy but isn't that sacrilegious?

What if he was one of us fellow confused caliber identifiers and had a .40? Would it be the proof of how good the .40 is? Dropped the guy on one shot and didn't need to reload... "rlol"

Double stack 1911 pistols in 9mm are best guns for competition. Have you heard of STI? or SVI?

The AP actually ran this story on their U.S. News section. (No anti-gun commentary or snowflake thoughts for the dead perpetrator) Couldn't believe my eyes.https://apnews.com/d7fa7edc04904cc7a96708798bdeeaaa/Georgia-gun-store-owner-shoots,-kills-armed-robbery-suspect

I replaced it with another video from YouTube. The account must have been deleted for some reason other than the video itself.

Thanks for pointing this out.
