Nope, 1911 is for after they board, if they even got that far! CQB baby!

You know, I never liked the FN FAL rifles. That shorty is nice though. I had a real FN FAL for a few months a guy gave me to "diagnose" that was....his words "shooting erratic".....turned out to be him that was shooting erratic. I shot the hell out of it for a few months and liked it OK, but could outshoot it with a AR10.

A .44 mag would definetly be more effective if you have mastered the caliber/weapon combo. A .45acp would be easier to find rounds in pretty much any port where you could buy ammo

How do ya figgure? Since the dawn of time, 1911 and .45acp has been the battle handgun El Supreemo! I have had many .44mags and NONE have been anywhere near the battle readniess of the 1991 platform, and .44 mag is NO WHERE near the tactical or CQB ability of it.....shoot, round count alone leaves the .44 mag in the dirt. My 1911's can use 10 round mags, and I can do really pretty fast mag changes when being shot at.....

I'm thinking better range, better energy. The biggest negative the .44 has is over penatration.
I was thinking of longer range pirate defense not repelling a boarding party when they wake you up at night.

BTW, i've never been shot at. Have only recently bought an automatic
Picked the .40S&W Glock for the reputed durability of the weapon and
the ballistic tests which persuaded the FBI to pick it when looking for a
better caliber than the .45 due to recoil.

Ya, i've read lots of stuff about the .45s legendary stopping power.
When I was actively reloading I spent hours and hours and hours going
over ballistic tables for various calibers. Also spent lots of range time
with the .357 loads I developed and the 30-30 OTC stuff

I know where you can buy the boxes, think they run about 500ish.

[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']There is one thing the .44 mag has over the .45 ACP...ammo availability. Some countries do not allow people to own "military" caliber weapons...needless to say that leaves out, .45, 9mm and a host of others. Now pulling into some third world port and being able to local .44 mag, might present a problem in itself.[/FONT]

Picked the .40S&W Glock for the reputed durability of the weapon and
the ballistic tests which persuaded the FBI to pick it when looking for a
better caliber than the .45 due to recoil. (Recoil of the .45acp is overinflated by the press, and those who have not shot it much. It is not less recoil energy than the .40, but it is different. If you even shoot a .45acp and .40sw back to back, youll see that the .40 is a tad less but sharper, the .45acp more pushy but less sharp of a preceived recoil. Therfore, both are about the same to shoot. In fact, some like the .45acp better some the .40.)

(Stopping power, ammo availability, relibility, good looks, many millions of available parts, and easy changeout of broken parts should they ever fail are some of the other attributes of the 1911.)


One more thing, it is far more training to master a revolver for a gunfight than it is to master a specific platform auto loader, one can get damn good at a Glock or 1911 in a few days at the range, but it takes longer and there are more potential pitfalls for fast reloads on a revolver reguardless of caliber.
