So long as it's comfortable, effective and reliable.
I grew up shooting .45 long colt with my step-dad's father.
And I refuse to carry one in the chamber in a Glock.
I can draw and rack just as fast as some CCW'ers can draw.
.45 Long Colt. A marvelous round and launching platform.
Did you shoot any black powder rounds or just modern ammunition?
The question is: can you draw and rack as fast as the perp who is already in attack mode and you are having to take the reactive role?
Please let me recommend a book by Masaad Ayoob / IN THE GRAVEST EXTREME. Valuable lessons and good info in this text. It covers from ammo/weapon/carry options selections, a very accurate description of shots fired /altered perception, real time, to post shooting verbage to use with the responding police officers and most everything in between.
How is the GAP round recoil, in comparison to .45acp(which I find negligible)? Is yours double stack or single?........ hmmmm..... Are they making a single in .45GAP yet?
I do like the 36. Likely my next purchase.
has some very usable holsters for several different types of carry. They're made of kydex, so, one hand reholstering.
Congrats on finding one you like and trust. That's a BIG hurdle in and of itself.
