9mm was intended to wound a man, .45 was intended to stop a horse!
1911, 106 year proven history as combat effective handgun!

Was it the inanimate object called a 1911 that saved the day or was it the person using the inanimate tool that saved it? :mrgreen:

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.

And especially if he was shooting a 130 grain bullet with a charge that just barely made a 125 power factor. :shock:
