I am well aware of that. I 'was' one of the most out spoken proponents of the 45 when I got back from RVN and became a cop. In my 'opinion' there should be a 45 acp in every cops holster. But I knew that would not happen with out 'proof' that it was superior to other calibers. I carried one while on the SWAT (TEU) team and loaded my own ammo. To prove my point I began to research it and over the last 40+ years of researching it I proved myself wrong.
But the myth and misinformation continues to abound!!!

Jim, our experience is similar, I was in RVN arriving days before Tet in January 1968. After becoming a civilian I joined the Chicago PD for a fun filled 31 year career. A friend just sent me an very good read on typical police handgun, rifle and shotgun loads and their performance. Send me your email in a PM and I'll forward it to you.

MHO, gun shops can't keep Shields in the store. S&W can't make them fast enough. Till the demand for 9's and 40's drops significantly, I doubt Smith would consider another caliber.
Never argue with an idiot in public. People passing by won't know which one of you is the idiot.
