State your opinion of your views.
 
Hopefully this won't cause a debate, but I think I'd like to hear peoples own opinion on their preferences.

Mine are (And it can be about anything Gun related)

.45ACP or bust.

The .40 S&W is a odd round... either go 9X19, or .45....

10mm Auto is better then the .357SIG in every way possible.

I think Glock's are fantastic pistols, but NOT the greatest on the planet.

For killing, the 5.45X39 is better then the 5.56 NATO...

When it comes down to M1911's I won't touch anything but a Colt.

All in all. I carry a Beretta 92FS with 124gr Double-Tap +P's

Really?

You are killing your credibility. You just stated in Mas's forum that you are not old enough to carry yet...

The 1911 is 100 years old for good reason.
If you think a 9mm won't kill you, I know a few headstones to show you.
Handguns are handy, rifles are dandy.
The best caliber for self defense starts with 7.62
I own a .40 due to my job, I own revolvers for reliability
Most who have told me "What it takes to survive a gunfight" has never been anywhere near a fight.

As I am in my 23rd year, I have been able to do task number one: Go home at the end of every shift safe & sound...

That's odd, that's the one 1911, I won't own! The only thing more odd is your other two statements! :rofl:

HAW! You nailed it!

The first stop when I check into Glock Talk is the Gate Self-Defense forum and the second is Caliber Corner. I caught this immediately, as did you.

Because gun companies kept it around. If old GI issue 1911 Colts were the only 1911s on the market the 1911 most likely would have died off or went to nill a very long time ago.

sound...

Yeah, because the design still works pretty much unchanged for 101 yrs. We'll see if Glock can last that long.:tongueout:
Plenty of really good 1911 not made by Colt. Nothing wrong with the 40 either, it does offer some benefits of both 9mm & 45. GLock is a good tool, but I have seen my share have failures, they are not idiot proof. Only thing really wrong w/ the 10mm is lack of enough diff guns to make it matter.

I believe it takes a fair sized hog to weigh a ton.

Jeff,

Don't do it bro... you should save your second post for something else epic.

Okay dude, so your first statement says ".45 ACP or bust." Then you mention you carry a Beretta 92FS. Kind of a contradiction isn't it? Just giving you some **** dude. :tongueout:

I do agree the .40 S&W is an odd round. Anymore I don't think there is much of a need to bridge the gap between 9mm and .45.

My opinion: (Yes, opinion. As in, "I don't speak for everyone.")

1. I'll take a .45 for my first choice every time.

2. The .40 nicely fills the gap (that still exists) between the 9mm and .45 ACP. The .40 is what I would be carrying if I couldn't carry a .45 caliber pistol. I won't personally go below .40 if I have a choice in the matter. 9mm is adequate though and I have nothing against it.

However, there is nothing the 9mm can do that the .40 or .45 can't do better when comparing the best loads in each caliber to each other when fired from a full size handgun. I still prefer to stay above 9mm if I can help it.

3. I don't personally care for either cartridge. I Agree on the 10mm in the sense of shear power and penetration but if I had to choose between one or the other for carry, I'd take the .357 Sig. Why? Smaller platform, more controllable, the gun fits my hand better, and less possibility of overpenetration.

4. Glock makes a good gun but not a great gun. Yes there is certainly better but not at that price point.

5. Of the two, 5.56 every time. If I want a commie cartridge, I'd rather have the 7.62x39. (.308 is still better! :supergrin:)

6. When it comes to 1911's, I'd rather have a Sig or HK. The only 1911's I'll ever own are high end custom guns or none at all.

7. The Beretta is a solid choice and if it works for you that's even better. (The Beretta is my favorite pistol in 9mm!)

:wavey:

chemcmndr 11-14-2012 06:54

My opinions:

1. Carry the largest caliber that you can shoot accurately.
2. Carry a proven and reliable cartridge in your weapon.
3. Practice often enough that you maintain or improve your level of proficiency with your carry firearm.
4. If it's worth shooting once, it's worth shooting twice.
