    Just wanted to break THR's innocence about these ridiculous prejudices.

    Glocks are among the "Great Guns" invented in the 20th Century, but so are the 9mm Luger and .45ACP cartridges.

    I knew this was gonna happen. Just for kicks, I'll say 9mm is mo better. ;) And, Glocks DO rule! Especially non-drop free full capacity mags and the old style no finger grooves frame. Heck, why mess with perfection? :D

    Wow! I suddenly had a feeling of deja vu! Couldn't be though, this forum has only been opened for a few hours. :)

    Wow!! talk about a tossing a soft ball..:D

    Actually,I did the same thing in the 'Rifle Country' Forum.:D :D

    Back on topic,my vote is for .45 for "Big" holes and 9mm for the more affordable ammo..

    Pop in a new recoil spring and shoot some .45 Super. Then let's talk!

    (Note: Don't actually do this unless you know your gun can do it.)

    Well so much for the virginity of this site...

    While we are at it, though, why dont we go ahead and add

    Marshall & Sanow -versus- Fackler to the pot!


    Much less controversial, right?

    How about .44-40? 9x23? Or better yet, the existing-in-imagination-only 10mm Boston?

    I've been shooting mainly 9mm for the past several years, with some .380, .357 Mag, and .45 ACP thrown in.

    I'm looking to upgrade to a larger caliber and will probably choose a .45ACP, although .40 is also a possibility.

    I won't comment on Glocks, I want a steel frame for the next gun. ;)

    How did I know that this would re-appear. I just thought it would take longer than about 6 hours.

    Well folks, I'm going to take a stand and refuse to kick this dead horse again.

    At least for the rest of the week. After that, all bets are off. :D

    Blackhawk,

    Already 47 posts and it's not even midnight yet. I can tell right now that most of you are going to leave me in the dust.

    Merry Christmas!

    You'd think so by the number of posts some members have already chalked up. I'm feeling inadequate. :D

    I never liked the Colt Series 70 I had (from 1981 until earlier this year; I traded it to Oleg actually), even after I forced myself to spend enough time to get decent (for my standards of marksmanship anyway) with it.

    But I did quite enjoy shooting a friend's .45 Super (he had a gunsmith do the conversion, so there's at least a second opinion that the gun could handle it, and somewhat more than just a stronger spring was done).

    I don't know if I was evaluating it against other "eeeevil" cartridges I've shot so it came out seeming more pleasant, or if that gun was just nicer than my .45, or what. But it was fun, anyway.

    What I kept and mostly shoot was my Glock 17. That one I really get along with.

    Now how many times do I have to say "Its all about shot placement" and evil plastic guns from the dark side melt. :D


    Hey Blackhawk: how about them pineapples brother. :D
