Thread: m&p or 1911

  1. I think you'd be better off with the Kimber. The 1911 frame has a tremendous history of reliability, durability, and now accuracy. 9mm are great for competition and practice. When it comes down to the moment of truth. The 9mm was designed to wound. Still needing more than one shot to stop. The .45 was made to kill(or atleast knock them down). Plain and simple. I carry Spr.Armory .45's. I also took the time and money to learn to thread needles with them. So in my case. It's going to be one .45 right in their treachea when the feces hits the ventilation system. I want to live, not just survive.

    I own an RIA because I think there should be at least one 1911 in every gun owner's inventory and I do like it. It's just not something I'll ever carry because I'm used to DA/SA.
    True that! I sold my M&P for reasons of my own(money for another project), now I carry(as soon as my holster gets here that is) the Armscor 1911(marketed under the High Stranded name).

    OK but what do you base it on?

    I like and own both, I carry a Springfield Professional by choice but feel completely comfortable with carrying a M&P as well.

    I have carried a 1911 for years and love to shoot it.

    Telling someone what gun to buy is like telling him what woman to marry. All guns and women have their good points and not so good points. Different people prefer different aspects of each, so I won't tell you what I think you should do.

    Just like beauty, good guns are in the eye of the beholder.

    This might true when FMJ is used however there are many quality SD round available today that improve the 9MM. No handgun round should be depended on to produce one shot stops IMO. Most if not all training schools today teach to shoot until the threat stops. Even the schools that advocate the 45 above all others teach this. BTW I am in no way downing the 45 since this is what I carry most often.

  11. Real world application. They can point at gel and all sorts of information. I've seen first hand what a 9mm does with an angry adreneline pumped adult male, and what a .45 does to them.
