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

That situation was stopped quick and effectively!
Thank you for sharing.

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:

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.

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

I'm going to pray that God will forgive you guys for this. He probably won't, but I'm going to try anyway.

This is really going to get good when it is determined that he was shooting a Kimber Solo, or an STI 2011 in 9mm.

Too bad he wasn't using a S&W .357 Magnum ala Dirty Harry.
