2481 44
guys i plan to have a single stack 1911. what would you recommend, super 38 or .45 acp?

i am considering a super 38 but have no idea how the recoil kicks. what is it comparable to?

thanks for the replies.:supergrin:

for practicality, I'll choose the .45. I dont choose caliber for fun. Every caliber in my list has a practical and supply related purpose for me. But does not mean that the calibers not in my list are bad calibers. It just means that calibers in my list are likely the ones in plentiful supply in any eventuality.

You're welcome!:) I like the write up. It's just factual. There are also other articles with guns and other ammo in that link. They are very informative.

but if you choose the 10, bullets are not that easy to come by. you can reload though. you only need 1 shot on a man btw:supergrin:
The FBI tried using the 10mm but eventually settled for the .40. The 10mm's recoil is not for everybody. Increased grip size is also a disadvantage to agents with small hands. They got a reduced load which is almost the same as a .40 S&W.

.45 ACP. Last friday shooting kami ng kaibigan ko sa Armscor. Meron siyang SIG na 9 mm, G21 ang dala ko. Me nakita kaming wounded na palaka na palaboy laboy sa range. Binaril niya ng 9 mm, sapul sa likod. Through and through. Tumalon-talon pa nang matagal-tagal ang palaka. Siguro pag tao yun uwi muna bahay, kuha itak para itakin kami. Kung ayaw niyo maniwala tanong niyo si Rommel, yung homeboy dun. Binaril ko ng .45, di tinamaan. Binaril ko ulit, di na naman tinamaan. Binaril ko pa ulit, di na naman tinamaan. Binaril ko na naman, di na naman tinamaan. Tumalon-talon pa. Binaril ko nang isa pa, tumihaya na ang palaka. Nilapitan ko, parang walang dagdag na tama pero tumalsik eh.

Moral of the story: Tunog pa lang ng .45 nakakatakot na, yung near miss ng .45 ay nakakamatay.

Mag .45 ka na lang siguro Sir.

Father Poodle kung 9mm ang boomer mas ok pag jhp , pagtama sa matigas tigas mag ma mushroom..(ewan ko lang sa palaka)
kung .45 naman sa lakas talaga ng sipa nun mahirap itama lalo na pag mali ang grip.

i agree mas llamado stopping power ng .45 kesa sa 9mm iyon eh kung tatama ka.

palaka ba naman barilin, medyo mahirap nga! un mga mukhang palaka madali tamaan yun...:laughabove:

for self defense use, which is more likely to be used at home which has limited space and short distances (cqb), siguro naman madali na tumama on the center mass. true gunfights rarely occured on long distances (urban case scenarios).

Madali tumama Center of Mass sa G21 ko. Pati follow through manageable. Malayo kasi yung palaka nung barilin ko (baka kasi balikan ako nung bala eh) saka kulay lupa siya, naka-camouflage hirap makita. Pero kung tao yun snake bite siya ng .45.

Testing ko din JHP sa .45. Lata ng pintura na nilagyan namin ng mga carton at papel sa loob. Laki ng exit hole. Local na JHP lang ang ginamit ko (mahal kasi ng CORBON eh). Sunod hanap ako ng lumang yellow pages, basain ko tapos testing ko ulit ang ballistics ng FMJ at JHP.

i have a para in 40cal, i use it in match and sometimes carry. pero the gun in my bed side is my norinco 1911A1, with all fmj armscor rounds, still have plan to at least have 1mag of jhp for minimal penetrations (safety purposes) for home defense use. my issue hs2000 9mm is just stock in my cabinet, planning to use it in production match.:thumbsup:
