Got a thing for them, that's for sure. Always planning my next one. Used to be a 40 guy, but I've seen the light...

1st I ever shot was a Colt 45. After that I said to myself "Self when you turn 21 your are buying us a .45" Sure enough I eventually did. It was my 2nd gun but my 1st love!

My g/f wants to take her from me because she loves it as much as I do.

Heck, I have about decided I like all calibers, though I am partially to the old standards of the 45 and 9mm.

I love the .45 also. I carried one when I was police patrolman and a sheriff's deputy, until they issued us sig .357. I like the .45 better...

I'm getting so sick and tired of hearing about the "FORTY FIVE!". I have to hear it allllllllll day long, being in the gun sales business and all. Hearing a million stories a day about how a single round in the pinky will blow a man's arm clean off, or one single round will blow a man off his feet, smack him down to the ground, and practically vaporize him. I like .45acp and all, and the only handgun I have at the moment is a .45acp, but I need a 9mm to wash the bad taste of all this nonsense out of my mouth. ;)

Two smoking shoes and a pink mist.

I love me some .45 ACP, just can't afford the damn stuff. It's about on the affordability scale right next to cocaine and cigar boats.

Every round has its use but a 45 just works. I like the low pressure recoil, and thin grip design Moses Browning created some odd hundred years ago. Back before hollowpoints they just started the bullet where it needed to be when it hit. Hell a 45 round hurts when thrown by hand.

Forget the 9. Go 7.62mm.

Jezz, it never ends does it. I too love the .45, but carry a .40 and have a 9mm nightstand. Hope I never need to employ, but I know I can shoot them both well, and have complete confidence in the weapons of choice (HK and Glock) HST's in both. I'm not under gunned.
