    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.

    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.

    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.
