    I have no use for anything in 9mm.

    Well, you truly do not realize the full potential of this caliber. My last duty load was a +P+ that clocked roughly 1,400+ fps from my issue P226. Even crapy 9 ball has done it's share of damage since WWII. The placement of shot is where it is at! DAMHIK!

    Nah, I just don't have any dies for it.

    Sounds as if you haven't shot a lot of them. Even the 9mm Mak. with modern defensive ammo is nothing to sneese at. Go shoot several 2X4s with a 9mm and see how it does.

    I didn't vote, because my response really doesn't fit. I have no reason to be against a 9mm M1911; I simply don't own one.

    (I have a Hi-Power. )

    That depends on your definition of a lot.

    I have a 4" Kimber in 9mm. I bought it as a trainer for my kids and as a less-expensive practice companion to my Ultra Carry .45ACP.

    interesting poll, I've wanted a micro or compact .45 1911 forever. But lately I'm considering the SA EMP in 9mm. I have small hands and I know there's a lot of recoil and flip in a micro .45 so I know I could shoot the 9mm better, cheaper and I live a very very low threat life and am confident in a 9mm. I just like .45 and would like to carry it because it's a great round but I guess it doesn't make sense to cary 6+1 of a caliber I can't shoot nearly as well as 10 rounds of one I can? Does it? I've been saving to get either the Kimber CDP in compact or a springfield micro but held the emp and the shorter distance from front to back of the grip makes a BIG difference for me and I realized it's really the 1911 format that I love, not so much the .45 so I'm looking seriously at the EMP for my final/ultimate carry, only question now is, shoot I wait to see if they bring out a 4" version of the EMP??? That would help out the 9mm a bit and make it a tad better for work at the range without hurting it any for carry.

    Interesting poll!

    God Bless

    Absolutely NOT!

    I'm just an old fashioned stick in the mud. 9MM 1911A1 and military intelligence go hand in hand in my opinion. I have a 22 for plinking and a hard time deciding which 45 to carry on which day. All of the 45's seem to like 230 gr GoldDots and on the days when I just can't seem to make up my mind I usually end up with the SP101 with 125 gr 357 GoldDots by my side. Besides, being retired, I am trying to simplify my life and reduce the number of calibers I reload so I can spend more time shooting and less time swapping out dies.

    Good question and a great thread!

    Really this isn't a flame or a troll. But have you checked out the newer ammo, and shoot something solid to see what it does. Shoot several 2X4s or through a old car door to check it out. It's not going to bounce off a B/G. I pack a 1911 with.45acp about 98% of the time. But, I was looking at a Springfield EMP .9mm today. I loved the look and feel of it.

    As a person who has been payed to carry guns since 1983 the caliber is not a big-n-issue as many believe. I have seen shot placement with most every caliber do the job. As a matter of fact the most text book example of bullet expansion I have ever seen was with a 40gr, lead round nose, .22 rimfire to the cranium.

    On the flip side of this coin when the bullets fly back at ya you really don't care what caliber they are, just where they impact.

    Does .39 Super count?

    Since .38 Super is fairly common in 1911s and has ballistics roughly equal to a hot 9mm with almost the same bullet diameter, would it count here?

    If you look at a 125 grain Winchester Silvertip in .38 Super, you see muzzle velocity of 1240 fps and muzzle energy of 427 ft-lbs. This is quite similar to 9mm +P ammo performance.
