A Look At The .45 ACP Cartridge

Iraqveteran8888 Barry takes it to the classroom:

Iraqveteran8888-ENDOThat Remington R1 is a nice looking 1911 that’s for sure.  Good price point too!

Barry is wearing the ENDO Apparel California No Right To Bear Arms t-shirt.

.45 vs 9mm though… Which one do you guys think is better and why?  hahah just kidding.

Someone can shoot and reload that revolver faster than a semi auto? Where’s my bullshit flag when I need it…

Someone probably can. Not everyone, but someone.

Barry’s beard is a prohibited weapon in 14 states.

Bad Barry, riding that hammer forward on the 1911! And yes, those R1s are superb guns despite their newness to the market and people making them out to be trash. I’ve shot and gone through two of them in detail and they’re not lacking. $625 is a good price for them.

riding the hammer is bad why?

If he dry fired it, someone else would be in here saying that is wrong too.

Riding the hammer back or forward will put more lateral pressure on the hammer and hammer strut IIRC.

I split the difference ans shoot .45mm, as it fills the most important check marks:

1. starts with a “.4”
2. is super high cap and concealable

Hooray for taking the Internet’s advice! (seriously, is this debate still ongoing? I thought we settled on “shoot what works for you” and “all pistol calibers suck” a long time ago…)

Facts: Lee Jurras pioneered high performance hollow point pistol ammo with the Super Vel line that you could actually buy as loaded ammo in the 60’s.

A revolver can theoreticaly cycle faster than an auto pistol until it has to be reloaded because of the shorter distance the working parts have to travel. Jerry M is a great guy and can probably shoot a revolver faster than anyone at this time. I’ve shot with him many times, he can also shoot an auto pretty fast as you can see in this video http://youtu.be/uFoM8S3JwZU I think you will see the auto can put more rounds out.
