I would defer to those whose very lives depend on an effective sidearm, such as the Marines, who are gravitating back to the .45 ACP. Must be a reason.

Guess this debate will never go away. If it's stopping power you want, carry a rifle. An AK with a folding stock or the AR "pistol" with no stock, just the recoil spring tube on a single point sling under your coat. Ammo capacity wouldn't be a problem either. Seriously, I've got both 45's and 9's, like them both, trust either/or with my life. MHO? If I can't stop the threat with a 9, I couldn't stop it with a 45 either. That's on me and my skills, not the rounds I'm putting down range.

*Serious Question* I'm not trying to start something. Are they going back to the 1911 platform or are they going back to the .45 ACP? The very few marines I've talked to all agreed their standard issue Baretta was a POS. I don't remember any of them saying anything bad about the 9mm, just that the pistol shooting it wasn't the best.

It's true. The USMC is going back to the Colt 1911 in .45acp. I don't know it it's the whole Corps or just Force Recon initially. On a separate but related note, the Army renewed their contract with Beretta for 5 more years.
