In your opinion does a colt officers acp have any real advantage over a colt cobra for balistics and stoping power? I ask as I own both and carry one or the other often. I feel there are pros and cons to both gun for differant reasons,I love my cobra but feel a bit better with the officers model. I know the .45 is bigger than the .38 and some like this better but out of the officer's 3 1/2in" barrel is here a huge differance?
The little 1911 hides easier due to being flatter and to me recoils a bit less than the cobra. Follow up shots are easier with the officers model as well. As far as reliability goes I've never has any issues with either gun in that area. And my only mods to my officers model are wilson mags and a clarks recoil spring plug.
So do you guys feel like a 3 1/2" 1911 gain anything over a snub nose revolver?
