the colt m1 1911
my favorite handgun too bad i cant getone.
#5 - gassnake (12/12/2012) [-]
1911 because i love only having 7+1 shots instead of the 16+1 with my Sigma.
User avatar #6 to #5 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
you only need that many rounds if you cant shoot worth ****
#14 to #6 - gassnake (12/12/2012) [-]
Or if there is more than one assailant, or in case you don't kill them after the first shot, but hey why not use the bullet with a **** ton of recoil. If someone comes in my house i will shoot them 16 times because my gun holds 16 rounds.
User avatar #37 to #14 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
that's the nice thing about the .45, the first shot most likely will kill them and if it doesn't i'm sure they wont be able to move very well. Plus if someone come in my house their getting a shotgun, not my pistol.
#38 to #37 - gassnake (12/13/2012) [-]
my shotgun doesn't take corners well it's too long, but i like a nice non-penetrating 9mm ballistic tip so i don't **** anything up but who i'm shooting at.
#39 to #38 - klay (12/13/2012) [-]
you need to get the super shorty, that's what i keep next to my bed

i have a 50 year old 870 wingmaster. it was my father's and i use it to hunt.
User avatar #41 to #40 - klay (12/13/2012) [-]
man, i bet that's a nice piece. i've always loved the 870
#42 to #41 - gassnake (12/13/2012) [-]
i like the older ones better than the newer ones, they jam alot easier now.
User avatar #44 to #42 - klay (12/13/2012) [-]
yea, they don't make em like they used to that's for sure
User avatar #46 to #5 - violenthandjob (12/13/2012) [-]
Shot placement is key.
#47 to #46 - gassnake (12/13/2012) [-]
While shot placement is key, ammo capacity is a very nice thing. Plus i really like the penetration of FMJ rounds, and i also like having the option of a nonpenetrating ballistic tips so i don't hit anyone or anything, else in my house if an intruder comes in.
User avatar #48 to #47 - violenthandjob (12/13/2012) [-]
Very true that extra ammo makes me more comfortable also. Luckily homes in my area are reasonably spaced out so I don't have to worry about over penetration to much.

.45 ACP
because who needs follow up shots to land

.45 ACP
because you'll surely never have to shoot through a windshield

.45 ACP
because having fewer rounds is always better

.45 ACP
because that perp will really feel the difference in the size of the hole through his head

.45 ACP
Because Double tapping comes in one round.

you wouldn't have to shoot twice if you had decent aim, head shot is a kill shot with any gun.
User avatar #8 to #7 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
yes, but not any gun will take their head clean off
#9 to #8 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
the goal is to stop the guy, i dont care how it happens. 22 rounds cost alot less. and a 22 round will go in your skull, but it wont come out. that means its just bouncing around in there, scrambling your brains.
User avatar #10 to #9 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
who needs to scramble when i can just spray
#11 to #10 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
again, spray and pray doesn't work, id rather hit 30 individual people with my 22 and a 30 round banana clip than hit 3 people with an automatic weapon.

Really though, when will you ever face that situation (unless, of course, you're in the military)? In the types of situations where having a sidearm on you could help you, such as getting mugged in dark alleys, home invasion, etc (and no, things like bank robberies where accuracy applies do NOT count, as being a hero will likely just get you dead anyway), a .45 is absolutely advantageous; if you do actually have to pull the trigger, that .45 has more stopping power than most alternatives. Not to mention, staring down the barrel of a .45 would be one hell of a lot more intimidating than a .22 (bear in mind here that the types of low-lives you would have to draw on would likely not consider that a bullet to the head equals death, regardless of size).

tl:dr; **** YEAH .45 FTW!!!!
User avatar #17 to #15 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
**** YEA!!!!
#20 to #15 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
the difference is i can fire once, and stop him, while your firing an entire clip. the reason automatic weapons are the favorite is because they have a loud bark. but id rather have a big bite than a loud bark
#22 to #20 - monkeyyninja (12/12/2012) [-]
1) why are you assuming I would have to fire more than once, and you would not?
2) why are you assuming that I would be using an automatic weapon? Be realistic. Gun battles don't happen on the streets of America.
3) why would the volume level of the caliber matter? Again, I think you're glorifying the types of situations in which a handgun would need to be used.
4) how the hell do you think that in any situation a bullet that weighs a fraction of a .45 would have more of a bite?

Leave .22s for plinking
#29 to #22 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
was i talking to you about any of this? all i did was say it doesnt matter what kind of gun you use so long as you hit them in the head. i was only saying that a 22 round would cost alot less.
#35 to #29 - monkeyyninja (12/12/2012) [-]
If ever you forget that arguing with the internet is pointless, don't worry, it will remind you.
User avatar #12 to #11 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
i don't think you got what i was saying, let me clarify. Why would i want to scramble their brains when i could spray their brains?
#13 to #12 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
one word. recoil. if you aim at their head and fire, one round will land, and the rest will go above their head. with a 22. there is literally no recoil, unless your 6. i can put all 30 rounds in someones head while your putting onely 1 in their head, and 29 in the sky.
User avatar #16 to #13 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
but that's the beauty of it, i only have to use one round. Plus it almost doesn't matter where i hit them, that round has enough stopping power to put anyone on their ass
#18 to #16 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
exactly you only need one round, your proving my point for me. only needing one round means an automatic weapon isn't ideal.
User avatar #21 to #18 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
You're a ******* idiot. First you were trying to say that a .22 is better than a .45, now you're saying that automatic weapons aren't ideal. Maybe you should go learn something about weapons before you go running your mouth about something you don't even know about.
#24 to #21 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
you do realise your the one who brought up automatic weapon?
User avatar #26 to #24 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
oh god, your level of stupidity is off the charts
#31 to #26 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
"who needs to scramble when i can just spray" was it me who said that or you?
User avatar #33 to #31 - klay (12/12/2012) [-]
and i do believe i clarified that for you.
#36 to #33 - rvaugh (12/12/2012) [-]
look, all i said was it doesn't matter where you hit them, and you had to argue that. a 22 is a great weapon because the rounds cost very little, yet they still have deadly force.
