I have to side with Falcon1.....I carry a 9mm just how Browning intended for me to carry a 9mm......in a BHP. If I want a 45 I grab a 1911 if I want a 9mm I seduce my slickup hotter than a arkansas sidewalk in june Browning and jiggle as it slides flawlesly into that Don Hume (temporary) holster.
Oh well, guess I'm spoiled.
45 yes 38 super yes
9mm no just don't see the point maybe if i didn't have 38 super and reload i would
So that might provide a motive to convert a .38 Super 1911 to 9mm caliber. I have read a number of threads on the 1911 forum discussing this, and it seems that for an investment of about $200 in the correct barrel, bushing and magazine you can do this. There are many used .38 Super guns on the market, and such a conversion would allow you to shoot the cheaper 9mm practice ammo, as well as the hot new 9mm defensive ammo.
I have a .38 Super 1911 for which I have considered this move - a Colt Gold Cup Elite, shown below:
Nope maybe i should get one :)
My other reason, as previously stated, is that I haven't the dies to reload 9mm. I only have .38/.357, .44, and .45 ACP for pistol reloading. :smile:
