I prefer the 9mm 'cause that's the caliber of my Hi-Point carbine. There, I think that puts me at 15 or 16!

I can't believe I'd even read another caliber war but I got suckered into opening this up... AND IT WAS FAKE

.45 is the way to go. 1911 all the way.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 5:42:42 PM EDT

.177 pellets all the way!

Hey........what a rip!

Ahhh, Lil' Ed must be asleep.
You obviously have too much time on your hands.
LOL, congrats.

Speaking of which, when do we get a new picture?

Link Posted: 3/2/2001 6:00:58 PM EDT
I don't know if I can post pics on AR15.com...I thought that 'nekkid ladies' with or without firearms were not 'acceptable' here. I guess this is one for the mods to answer...

I can and will however put pics on AK47.net...shoot, over there, the mods ask for em...[:D]

So, I guess I will await a reply from the mods...is a semi-nude pic ok here? I don't want to end up banned for 'pornography' or anything like that...I only post pics w/ firearms...and obviously for this board, I would pose w/ my CAR15...shake the magic 8-ball and let me know...

Hey you can post all the Nekkid pics into my email that you want. LOL With guns of course..  hehehe

.45 is the best choice. 230 grains of mass versus 115 grains. Duh!
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 9:00:02 PM EDT
9mm is the best choice. 18 shots from my Hi-Power versus 8 shots from a 1911. It doesn't matter how big the bullet is if you are out of them.
If the NYPD had had 1911's, Diala would only have been shot 32 times. [pistol]
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 9:27:18 PM EDT
They make hi-cap mags for a reason. 9mm is anemic. It may be alright for gangbangers and wannabes. When they absolutely, positively, gotta die, 45acp,1911. One shot done!
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 10:15:14 PM EDT
Still no word from the mods on pics???

Oh, and BTW...I carry a G26 w/ 2 hi-cap mags...if I can't hit/stop something w/ 22rds...I am prolly fecked anyway...she does me well (wow, that sounded kinda pervy, eh?[0:)], my bad)

Link Posted: 3/2/2001 10:35:19 PM EDT
If you plan on buying a 9mm you might as well poke them with a sharp stick less money and as much damage. .45 sig my choice
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 11:02:12 PM EDT
No Sheep hit it right on the money.Hit some drug crazed idiot in the arm and he will keep on swinging with a 9mm.Hit the same spot with a 45 and you will break the bone.It's late and am just trying to be a member again.
Link Posted: 3/2/2001 11:17:18 PM EDT
It's UZI 9mm over UZI .45ACP.

32rds of 9mm compared to a mere 16 for .45ACP.

I'm with you on this one USPC40!

In the words of the infamous Beavis "This sucks!!!"
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 4:22:06 AM EDT
seems to me that the freak that shot up the two offices in atlanta a couple of years ago had a 9 and a .45.
those that were shot with the 9 survived,those shot with the.45 did not,boxer.

Sorry if I confused things, I was speaking of a Pict. of Lil' Ed. LOL, whoops.

My girls are the best part of my life.
Oh, and that includes Mrs. Del too.
Without them there would be much less love in my life.
Mrs. Del likes the 9mm Taurus 99.
I like my Glock 30 .45.
With the right ammo both are extremely effective and superbly accurate.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 5:45:18 AM EDT
9mm with the powder charge of .40 ....
speedy ... 357 SIG...
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 5:46:41 AM EDT
I only use hard water in my water pistols, no sparkletts for this kid.
Ed, sorry you didnt like my humor. Sophmoric? definately. Funny? I thought so. It was only poking fun at a real situation. I didnt think any would find it offensive.
I guess I found another line. They`re getting harder to see in my old age.

i'd carry both--when you empty the 45-clean up what's left with 19 rounds from the glock...Dick
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 1:13:19 PM EDT
OH...silly me...I can do baby pics anytime...sorry for the mix-up...

Mr. Avila...could you perhaps answer my question about pics though? TIA

I am thinking about trying a G30...I would definatley have to practice with it before I just started carrying it though. The reason I carry the G26 is because I am comfortable with it...and in a high stress situation, I know I can handle the 9mm...I don't know that I could handle the .45...

I have no trouble with it in a range situation...but when there is trouble, I would rather have well placed rds. w/ 9mm than not hit poop w/ .45....ch
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 1:32:40 PM EDT
But you didn`t answer Bratty`s question about the pictures?
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 3:02:48 PM EDT
who knows what is going to be better tomorrow, with ballistics changing from day to day  from high velocity to rounds that fragment on impact it is so much out there confidence is a major killer when in your corner  i prefer the hard hitting .45 with some JHP
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 4:39:13 PM EDT
Bratty; There is nothing wrong with a 9mm. Carry what you like. If your comfy with the nine, use it, just stuff it with good ammo for defense.
Ask Derek.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 4:46:47 PM EDT
Once they come out with the new GLASER BB's my RED-RIDER goes to the front of the gun safe.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 5:07:02 PM EDT
1911 .45's. There really is nothing to debate. No nasty transition from DA to SA either or heavy DA only pulls.

I saw pics of a guy who was shot 34 times with a 9mm. He eventually died but was able to return fire until that point. He was shot with FMJ's which is certainly not the most efficient 9mm round.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 5:53:08 PM EDT
The better loads in either caliber will work. I don't like to take sides, but I am sick of all this 9mm bashing. I would prefer have my SIG P226 with 16 Federal +P+ hollowpoints in a gunfight than my HK USP .45 with 9 185gr. +P hollowpoints in it. Those who think modern 9mm high velocity hollowpoints are "wimpy" are pretty pathetic. Sorry, it's called technology, and we have learned to manufacture 9mm rounds that are ALMOST as good as anything in .45acp. Ed Sanow has proved this over and over again. What you will most likely find me carrying is a P229 with 13 rounds of .357 SIG or .40 S&W. There's that damn advanced in technology again! Reality is a bitch...

*whew! Felt good to get that out...*
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 6:39:12 PM EDT
I would put more faith in a .22 MAG than a 9mm !
1911 in .45ACP.....The only way to fly.
Link Posted: 3/3/2001 11:48:52 PM EDT
HELLO!!! since when did this become a thread about caliber choices???[;D]

Link Posted: 3/4/2001 12:17:48 PM EDT
A well placed .45 acp 230 grains round nose or a Hornady XTP 230 grains hp. will do as much work as a full magazine of any 9mm ammo. I has to be a 1911 canon.

Link Posted: 3/4/2001 12:21:28 PM EDT
9mm is the way to go. Cheaper, lighter and smaller ammo. Can pack enough of a punch to get the job done.
Link Posted: 3/4/2001 12:35:42 PM EDT
GSG9...methinks perhaps the original post isn't being read...LMAO...thanks for all the responses though...ch
Link Posted: 3/4/2001 12:46:45 PM EDT
this post was a sham [ grenade] ....but both are great. if you can shoot staright and hit the target: 9mm@ 15 rds is my choice.
Link Posted: 3/5/2001 12:29:12 AM EDT
You can post those pics to my email anytime!
Maybe you should just start your own site for those of us who enjoy our guns with a little more "style".

I would like to own a 1911 in the original .45 ACP. I really like it.
But for selfdefence I am using Walther P99 and Browning HP36 both in 9 mm. With hi-cap magazines I can have enough firepower to defend my house... reloading is cheaper and 9 mm. require less training to achieve good results...

Suckered me into another caliber war huh?

Well Bratty, Whichever one you're comfortable with is the answer.  The rest are just a bad hesitation waiting to happen.

Congrats on becoming a member.  I'll be one soon enough with all these meaningless posts I'm doing.  Anyway, good night roomies!  You are all an inspiration in one aspect or another!

Groovy.... is just another word for ... a good day at the range.

AK-47 is back up - I never did care for AK's, but I sure like the one Bratty is holding!.
