You know, historically, the Army hates it when the Marines have better equipment. Look at the LAV-25 and the Styker. Big Army might just step up and say "F**k the dumb s**t, lets do this! Enough with the little guns! That's how we got the 1911 in the first place!

Kimber made one too a few years back. Sold like turd scented air fresheners.

If I had to pack a bag and grab only one pistol for antisocial situations, It'd be my CZ-75BD. Given the option, I'd prefer a .45 however. Perhaps a CZ-97BD?

If the army goes .45, I honestly think it will be a high capacity polymer. There has been lots of talk about the M&P or HK .45. HK 45 was in the last trials, but the 9mm plague hit again. HK ended up selling the guns to civilian market. I am all for a high capacity .45. We are shrinking our military, which means our troops will focus on endurance to make for the slack. Endurance includes high capacity weapons systems that weigh less. Armor that weighs less. heck, even armored vehicles that weigh less. It is the way of the US forces future.

I think I've been hearing this rumor since I first got in the army.

I have small hands and from what I've read so far, the CZ-97BD is HUGE!! I held a STI double stack today at Cabela's and it did not feel good. One of the things that drew me to the 1911 was the single stack. I carry two extra 8rd magazines and am pretty good at the fast reload, either stationary or on the move. If I need more than 25 rounds of .45 ACP ammo, I'm in over my head. Glad I carry a knife.

I really appreciate the idea!!! Thank you!! I'll look into the RIA poly, too!!

You have to remember that some in the American military think if its not a 1911 .45 then they are not interested even tough there are more modern designs. Don't get me wrong i love my 1911 .45 but if i had to carry a .45 in the military it would be a H-K or similar handgun.
