Anyone else like .45s AND .25s?
I know there probably aren't a lot of folks out there who like BOTH, but I love the way a .45 shoots, a push rather than snappy recoil, which makes follow up shots easier. But I also love the way my Beretta 950 in .25 ACP shoots as well. A .25 to me is much more pleasant to shoot than a .22 of the same size. Had a Bobcat, Taurus PT22, and another 950 in .22 short but the .25 hasn't jammed once in 6 years and about 1000 rounds while all the others jam constantly even with Stingers. Even the sound of a .25 is nicer than the crack of a .22 in a short barrel. Were both rounds invented by Browning?

I have a little FIE Titan that I bought used over 30 years ago. I carry it when absolutely nothing else will work. It was only 50 bucks at a pawn shop back then but it has never FTF or jammed.

I like both if only because my German Walther TPH is 6.35mm (.25 ACP)
I like all
kinds of foreign guns.

I liked .45's when the factory offerings were cheaper. Don't have a .25 gun, so can't answer on that caliber.

25s are neat. Just be careful using them for defense. If the bad guy finds out you shot him it will probably make him pretty mad.

If you buy a .25, for god's sake put it on the top shelf of your closet. If you don't, you may be tempted to load it. If you load it, you may be tempted to carry it. If you carry it and have to shoot someone the guy just might find out and he's probably gonna shove it in places you don't want it.
But hey, I want to get a .32 acp. Carry what you want.

I like both really well. I take only the .45 seriously but think the .25 is a hoot.

Why has 25acp ammo always been so expensive. Is it so small that it's hard to make or what?
The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
