Fav 9mm is a Springer 9mm 1911


Fave 45 is my Para LTC


That para is usually the one that is always with me. THe Springer has a VERY light trigger..Great target gun, no way you could carry it though...

Can't you replace the trigger on the Springfield with a stiffer one? Either way both gorgeous guns.

Does this count?

I do like the shorter one for plinking or casual shooting. Gives me a .45 ACP that doesn't require half moon or full moon clips, nor do I have to fool with loading a magazine every so often. And the ejector throw is long enough that I get complete ejection with that little short case. And the empty cases are deposited right into my waiting hand so I don't have to grope around for my empties. It's all the advantages of a .22 in a reloadable case.

How does that work? I thought the Medusa was the only revolver that could hold rimless rounds without a moon clip?

I have a typical 9mm, a Smith 69, and a Calico M950. I sold my Glock 21 when I purchased my G20, 20 years ago.

Question, why ask about favorite 9mm or .45acp? The rounds are so dissimilar?

I ask because I am not a big fan of 9mm, because other loads are available the push the limits so much further. I sold my G21 to get the hotter more powerful G20, that also held more ammo. The 10mm is a pistol shooters dream, or nightmare, if one can't master it. The FBI and the Marshals walked away. Could not handle the load as a group. Lots of individuals love it, I do.

The 10MM was a great idea that was poorly executed.

If the original high velocity round had been retained, and weapons designed to handle it, the 10 would be marvelous.

But the neutered 10 available today has just given away too much.

I wud assume because those are the two "main" calibers used in handguns these days-
