I am a fan of the the bigger hole theory:
The bigger the hole the more air it lets and the more blood it lets out.
If it goes through and through that's two big holes to let the blood out.

Also if it takes more than 7 rounds of .45ACP to put it down, maybe you should not be shooting at it.

A full sized 1911 is what I use for protection. My wife and I hike and camp a lot. It is always in easy reach. A bit overkill for a po'd field mouse but marginal for an angry/hungry bear. We feel confident with anything in between. As a logical result, it goes on all our road trips with us.
The 1911 is a bit much to carry concealed, though.....pulls my pants down on that side and I will can't bring myself to wear suspenders.

Most times a "typical" gunfight is over in three rounds or less. I feel comfortable with a magazine that carries seven rounds. If the fight continues I'm going to be looking for cover instead of just standing in the open. Plenty of time to change mags.

I carry Remington Golden Saber in .45 ACP. It usually opens up to .68 caliber and penetration of just over 12 inches. I can't help but think the bad guy will notice a new hole of that size that comes close to going through him.

As for more rounds and lighter weight, that argument was used for the M16 to replace the M14. Need I say any more?

All I have to say is the 45acp was designed to kill a hopped up on opiates enemy because a 38 wasn't getting the job done properly...

Why do I feel like every one (Internet & friends) are trying their hardest to justify their 9mm purchases to any one that will listen. All I hear lately is 45 & .40 are horrible useless cartridges, leaving the 9mm as king. Many people prefer 9mm and I support their right, but stop trying to justify your preference by insulting me and my preference. I find the majority is rarely correct, and I will continue to go against the grain, that has served me well for most of my life. 100+ years of .45 auto can't be wrong (but neither are other options)

Never knew such a wise man existed as he is. Hell he probably advices Obama, and Hillary. I'm sure he believes what he saying, or had ear plugs in and was rambling. But I'd gladly put my 45 ACP, in the safe If he wants to buy me another CCW, weapon. My personnel thoughts of his video, talking Sh?t, chewing spit. Own a 9mm, 40 S/W, but the ccw is a 3.9 bull barrel, 230 gr. HP, single stack STI 45 ACP. I'm sure he has video, and proof side stepping a 45 acp.

I am glad he told us which "modern" rounds are so much better. I note he didn't mention the 9x19mm which is just as ancient as the .45acp.

For me anyway it's not that way at all, I own a Colt 70 series Combat Commander I've had longer than the G19 I carry now, I also own other 1911's. I've carried just about EVERYTHING you can imagine, from .22LR to 45LC, I still carry different guns for different jobs, a quick trip to the store for a six-pack and most likely be a J-frame S&W in .38SPL, my daily driver is the G19.

Again I've carried the 1911 and tried many others, some considerations down here in FLA are humidity and sweating all over your rig, weight and concealability in light clothing most of the year, also enough gun to get the job done, decades ago I settled on the G19 because it suited me best, it's a tool that fits me, and ammo has gotten a lot better. Not trying to convince anyone of anything, my carry works for me, you carry what works for you, most importantly you have confidence in it as I do...

45

I have heard all kind of argument against the 1911 and the 45 but none of them were willing to prove their point by letting me shoot them in the chest with this antiquated combo.
