So today I bought my first .45 today, an M&P45c. I just took it apart to clean and lube it and I had the barrel out. I picked it up and looked through it.
Geezus. That is one big frackin' hole... Is that the abyss they warn us not to look too long into?
I now get why .45ers love to carry this round so much.

I love the big slower hard hitting 45acp for its effectiveness at knock down and keeping them down performance.
Plus I enjoy the push of the recoil of 45 over the snapper recoil of many other rounds.
If I every have to pull it and use it, I want something that is effective with out depending on some new bullet design.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
*grunt grunt grunt* I love a more-power round. Love makin big honkin holes with my .45.
I am a hard-working self-employed conservative Christian white male gun owner. How else can I tick you off today?
A 9MM may expand to .45 caliber but a .45 will never shrink to 9MM.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Like my 45's can see the holes better with my 50 year old eyes.
M&P 45fs = Big holes
Where I want them every time = PRICELESS
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
I like ANY caliber that starts with a "4" and ends with a "5".

Eight 230 grain .45 acp bullets weigh 1840 grains (M&P45C)
Twelve 147 grain 9mm bullets weigh 1764 grains (M&P9C)
Almost the same amount of lead carried in each gun. Choose what you shoot best. Nothing like a big .45, but my 9mm is plenty capable.
