First, the weight of a 1911 is a benefit to the range shooter.
Second, if you pump a half dozen 22 rounds into even the
most determined attacker, I'll guarantee thoughts of a
hospital visit are going to cross his mind. I'd rather have my
GF hit someone with a 22 than miss with a .380.
1$ a bullet? Strange, my 45 ACP hollowpoints cost 2$ each.
