    The wife spent 9 days in the University of Colorado Hospital for spinal surgery, during that time I stayed in a Drury Inn and carried in a tuckable IWB with an extra mag in a mag pocket in 5.11 pants.

    Well upon arriving home I was unable to find my 2 spare mags and ammo, so I needed to replace the mags and 26 rounds of ammo.

    So I ordered 6 mags from CDNN and 150 rounds of Double Tap .45 ACP +P loaded with the 160 gr Barns all copper TAC-XP @ 1200 fps. I mean that's a reasonable replacement for the missing mags & ammo; right?? :innocent:

    Damn those TAC-XP hollow points could damned near be used for shot glasses.

    How did you lose your mags? Just left them in hotel or do you think someone took them?

    No; old school, series 80 single action carried cocked & locked.

    I had taken them out of the night stand as I was packing, just didn't get them in a suitcase. Wife was being transferred by ambulance (no lights or siren) from Denver to Laramie where we live and I was in a hurry. I had declined maid service and had the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the outside door handle the whole time, I'm 99.8% sure no one was in the room.

    There are those that take the year of 1911 ballistics as having never changed.

    I would say unclean men. For not all are manly enough to carry 230 grains of smiting power.

    160 gr .45 all copper hollow point @ 1200 fps WILL expand to ~.75 with a flat face and sharp metal "pedals" to crush and cut tissue making a decent sized temporary/permanent wound cavity and still penetrate ~15" in ballistic gelatin and 2 layers of denim

    A 230 gr .45 RN @ 850 will punch a clean little wound cavity and penetrate enough to exit wasting energy and endangering bystanders.

    Just for a little comparison......

    45 ACP FMJ 230 gr 365 muz energy @845 fps
    45 ACP DPX 160 gr 392 muz energy @1050 fps

    http://www.ballistics101.com/45_acp.php

    So at only 1050 fps the 160gr Barns TAC-XP has more muzzle energy than the 230 gr FMJ and my Double Taps are going 1200 fps. I think I prefer my odds in a gun fight with the DT 160s over FMJ. Especially when you look at the Double Tap stats....
    45 ACP +P Barnes TAC-XP 160gr 512 muz energy @1200 fps

    If by that you mean going to bed with strippers and performing all manner of deviant sexual acts there with.....

    Ya know, JMB was a very forward thinking man, he did not adhere to the dogma of the conventional thoughts of the firearms industry. I am sure the ignorant Neanderthals of his time cursed him for deviating from the Gospel of Samuel Colt, leaving the revolver and designing those cursed semi-automatic handguns.

    If JMB were living in modern times I think he would be at the forefront of lighter weight higher velocity expanding bullets. The powders and bullet designs of his day were not capable of it, so he went the way of mass/diameter to deliver terminal effect.

    In his days there existed the .30 Luger and 9mm Parabellum. Not to mention the 9mm Steyr and a few other smaller and faster cartridges.

    Yes, BUT they lacked the expanding bullets of today. Small and fast yes but the reason JMB went with 45 caliber was due to the failure of the 38 caliber revolver against the Moros in the Philippines and the legendary effectiveness of the .45 Colt revolver with non-expanding bullets. Plus JMB had to deal with cartridge OAL to fit in a grip that the average man could hold. With the powders of the day the way to achieve higher velocity was to add more powder and the smaller bullets had a better ratio of diameter to case length for velocity with the current powders.

    The reason JMB went with the .45 caliber was because that's what the US Army wanted. It had nothing to do with his preference.

    I read, more than once, that JMB's favorite cartridge was the .32 ACP, and his favorite pistol was the M1903.
