    "The pistol used...is among the more lethal handguns on the American firearms market."

    Well, the writer is correct, isn't he?

    Of course, just about as lethal is every .45ACP, .40S&W, 9mm, .357Magnum, and a slew of other handguns in many calibers. and we won't even mention long guns.



    one thing i haven't figured out: if guns are so evil, how come the antis seem to be OK with police and military personnel having them? it couldn't be that in the right hands that firearms are OK? maybe it's not the guns that worry them so much as the people (ordinary, law-abiding citizens) who have them. if the gun grabbers knew any history, they would be much more concerned about the police and military having a legal monopoly on firearms.

    Then why did the good guns hit more innocent bystanders than the bad one?

    So are you guys saying you'd just as soon be hit with a .45 as a .22? That caliber is irrelevant? That no gun is any more "deadly" than another? Sure, the contents of the article are no-brainer stuff for a gun enthusiast but who's his audience? The NRA? I don't think so.

    That just gives me the warm and fuzzies about the decision I made to carry a .45, it's right there in black and white, it 'Must" be true.

    So is it bad that when I went shopping at the lgs for a home defense gun that I told the guy behind the counter I wanted a gun that would just piss somebody off and not hurt them. Im hoping maybe I can just scare the hardened violent criminal away with the noise, I wouldnt want to hurt him or kill him or anything. Criminals are just trying to make it, you know feed their hungry familys and such, right?

    Ok, everyone with GLOCK 30's or 21's I will take these off your hands for no charge. If the 1911 8-round .45 acp pistol is one of the most lethal guns out there I'd hate to think of the sheer terror those high capacity GLOCKs can inflict on the world.

    It is like every time there is a shooting reporters give info about these dastardly powerful weapons with no info. They should at least consult with someone who knows about guns before putting it into print.

    Thats why NYC cops have to empty their guns with the puny 9mm bullets that are more suitable for large populated areas that provide human backstops behind their actual targeted person

    Being shot is like being pregnant, your not "just a little" of either.


    My response to being shot at is not varied by the caliber of the gun shooting at me, I will shoot someone with a 22 as fast and as much as someone shooting with a 45.

    The semiautomatic feature means that the gun reloads automatically after the trigger is pulled and a round is fired; it fires larger rounds than most handguns, making it difficult to handle, but powerful.
    I am sure we have enough ladies and smaller statured men on this forum that will dispute the difficulty of handling the mighty .45.

    Hahahahh! Too funny. Mine was so difficult to handle, I just mounted it to the hood of my truck. Open carry is legal here.
