    ...FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, with all your favorite ammo for that weapon available to you, what would it be? :whistling: :supergrin:

    Myself, being fairly new to higher powered pistols, I'm thinking capacity and durability... A Glock 21, with some good ol' Hornady 200 grain.

    Yeah, it's a dumb topic, and YEAH... I'm also looking for some insight... :supergrin:

    I only have one .45 and it may be the only one I ever own. The sig 220 works well for me.

    I only have one 45acp, it's a Ruger Blackhawk 45colt/45acp convertible with a 4 5/8" barrel. What can I say, I really don't like semi-autos.

    ETA: I use Double Tap ammo in both calibers.

    A 1911.

    I like my Glock but 1911s fit my hand better than anything else I've tried.
    100 years of refinements doesn't hurt either.
