    I made a new quiz, this time on calibers. I'm a .45 ACP. What are you?

    Didn't find the poll, but I would have to confess to being a .40S&W - reliable but subject to an occasional "kaboom". :D

    Since someone posted a link to the quiz, I discovered that I am a .45 Automatic.

    I am a .25 - you will make assumptions, but regret it when I hit you.

    Never saw the survey... it says .45 but I will stick with my own answer....

    .44 Magnum... Nice... My 10mm Auto was fourth and 9mm was second to last.

    Geez--I took the 'what handgun are you' quiz and was told that I'm a 1911. Now I take this and they tell me I'm a .45 ACP. I guess I better ditch my Glock 19 and get my old Colt back from my dad...

    Well, since the .357 is the revolver equivalent of the 10mm, I guess I'll take it.

    .45 Automatic
    .44 Magnum

    LOL! Right on as far as the top 3 is concerned; 40S&W, 45ACP, 357SIG

    What handgun caliber are you?
    Your Result: .40 Smith &amp; Wesson

    This cartridge was introduced in 1990 as a reduced power version of the FBI's 10mm Auto, because many agents couldn't handle the heavy recoil of the 10mm round. The .40 has loads ranging from 180-grain hollowpoint at over 1000 ft/s, to the mid-weight 155 and 165-grain hollowpoints at 1200 and 1150 ft/s respectively, and the super fast 135-grain which can reach speeds of over 1300 ft/s.
    Result Breakdown:
    81% .40 Smith &amp; Wesson
    79% .357 SIG
    73% .45 Automatic
    64% .44 Magnum
    59% 10mm Automatic
    52% 9mm Parabellum
    51% .357 Magnum
    41% .44 Special
    24% .38 Special
    0% .380 Automatic

    It says I'm a .44 Magnum, but I don't own one. I shoot .41 Magnum...it's more accurate.

    I don't think the quiz works. I "scored" 9mm, but I've only owned 1, for a short time, and when I sold it I was so happy that I immediately spent the money at the municiple liquour store.
