Is it the same here in the US. inferiority of a .45 1911 to a .40 polymer pistol?

I am so tired of debating topics in the Thailand's top popular gun site community I am a member.

The hottest topics are about the FBI' s change to 9 mm for its standard issued handgun for its agents. The majority of the members who possess a .40 are very furious and condemn whoever citing the news to support the 9 mm ammo. They do not care what FBI choose. It reaches to the point that the .40 is the best ever ammo invented on earth.

Even worse that some of those who own a .40 Glock are such boastful of the greatness of their gun together with the ammo. They rank a .45 1911 as an obsolete tool not fit for EDC and reliable self defense Due to the 7 or 8 + 1 capacity compared to their 2 digits capacity. And yes not to mention about the greater power the .40 has over the .45.

I was not searching much on US gun-related sites. I am only a member of 2 sites which has the US. their base, Kimber forum and Walther forum. Is it the same case in America as in Thailand? I wonder.

What!! Who wouldn't want a 1911? They have soul. Ask any of those numb nuts if they want to stand in front of one when you pull the trigger.

1911's are more popular now than ever.

Most people over here have multiple guns in different calibers, anyway. I don't have any .40's, because I didn't want to spend any more on ammo. But .40's are for pussies, anyway- a real man shoots 10mm, lol

Usually the loudest participants in such discussions are adolescent boys with no skills and small penises. It's best to ignore them. If you are bold enough to engage them in conversation, you'll probably be sorry.

But in case you're wondering, .45 ACP is for dinosaurs, 357 Sig is for real men, and 9mm is for Girl Scouts and sissies.

Are all of these not hammers? Which hammer is the best hammer?



It's the same argument. Which tool does the user prefer? Does the selection by the user change based on the task at hand? Which hammer does the user employ with skill?

I have two .40s (Glock 23 and Glock 27). Great guns. My personal preference of all the guns I own is my Kimber Super Carry Ultra HD (.45). I can shoot it was well as any gun I own and it is slim and easy to carry .. not to mention beautiful. It is my carry gun. YMMV (your mileage may vary)

Gmountain ... what were you saying about people who have .40s?

Pussies. .40 is a girls cartridge, a cut down 10mm.

Now youve done it.jpg

If you're so big and bad, why aren't you shooting a .454 Casull?
