I want a .45 --- they're so pretty ! ! !
Let me start by saying I am a 9mm guy. My first gun was a SA XD 9mm with a four inch barrel. I've fired that extensively with no problem (its only a 9mm, after all :blink:). I've also fired a Bersa .380 and a S&W Model 10 2" with some of the hotter +P loads. I am approximately 6 foot tall 185 ilbs, and have only really dealed with these smaller calibers.
My uncle has a Para-Ord. .45, and although I didnt get to test fire it, I loved the look and feel of this "mans" gun. Its just a beautiful piece of work.
Can someone enlighten me as to how much recoil (perceived or felt) one of these babies has compared to a standard "plastic-fantastic" 9mm. I'll be testing one out at the range sometime, but I just wanted to know now.
Also, which ones can I get for $500-600 bucks that will be worth my while?
Thanks in advance.
