    OH! I get it now! It all makes sense.

    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.

    Bigger bullets, or more bullets? It is all a matter of priorities.

    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.

    A 9MM may expand to .45 caliber but a .45 will never shrink to 9MM.

    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".
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    More big, heavy bullets in a big heavy gun. Yup, priorities.

    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.
