Default my REAL carry

S and W model 19 in a round butt frame with the 2 1/2 inch barrel changed out to 4.
15 years with it as a duty weapon. h o w e v e r.
colt commander when I was going into a bad guys house .45 silver tip hollow point does not go through seven walls and hit a kid somewhere like the similar .357.
but the .357 does a number on veh. and perhaps the fellow inside.
Now ? The commander. the mag is safe and secure in the gun safe.
Tis better to do than to do not.
Tis better to act than react.
Tis better to have a battery of 105's than not.
Tis better to see them afor they see you.

Despite a love of the old style Detonics Combat Master, I wouldn't go smaller than Commander, but all my M1911's are full size. The S&W M28 3 1/2 is put away. If I needed to punch vehicle skin, the 158gr SP would be replaced by 158gr Fiochi/Perfecta FMJ's. For the game, I voted M1911A1.

I voted other 9mm (Sig P226 for choice, HK P7M13 a close second) but it was a very tough choice over the M1911A1.
I only have the chance to fire pistols when I visit the US (once or twice a year usually) and I wasn't taken with the Glock 17: I found it too light to comfortably absorb the recoil, which hurt accuracy. SIGs I found more controllable, with much better accuracy.
Then I fired the 1911. It's the only pistol I have used where I could actually see the muzzle flash while firing it, and after a box or two of ammo it was starting to hurt my hand, but I was routinely achieving headshots at 30' (every round for about 4 clips) and centre mass at 50'. Even double taps were fairly close.
As a bonus, it shares ammunition and magazines with something I might actually own someday, the DeLisle silent carbine.
I laugh in the face of danger. Then I hide until it goes away.

Default It's Alive!

Based on the new responses on the Favorite APC/IFV thread, I thought a bit of thread necromancy might be in order.
