I really feel that my eardrums are going to rupture with the sound of a 38 super going off. It's supersonic, and it needs to be so as to be right up there in Power Factor with the 45 as a major IPSC round. Without ear protection, I believe using it will induce flinching, and deafness ;), which would be bad in the long term.

I'll have to recommend the 45acp. Not as noisy, and with the better ammo choices, is right at the top of the OSS (one shot stop) food chain.

Just my 2 centavos... ;)

.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.
There's your answer. A direct hit with a 9mm is better than a couple of misses with a .45.

Kaso lang, namatay yata sa nerbyos and palaka.:supergrin:

As I've mentioned in my previous post about a friend who got involved in a gunfight using a .38 Super, I asked him if he heard gunfire in the course of the encounter.

He said "I didn't hear a thing. Things happened too fast."

But if you're at a range, eye and ear protection is a must and the difference in sound signature between a .45 and a .38 Super would hardly be noticed.
