Remember, it was chosen by the US Army over the standard US Army 38 Colt during the Phillipine Insurrection...and it worked...stopped the insurgents dead in their tracks
Must be some reason the 1911 with 230 gr hardball has been the standard by which all other pistols and cartridges have been measured for over 100 years!
Ask any current combat veteran what handgun they want on their hip..It is not the anemic Beretta 92 9mm.The Marines recently placed an order with Colt for 50000 1911's.The Marines must have had a good reason to switch back to the 1911!
It was a sad day when the powers that be decided to scrap 45 acp 1911's in favor of the Beretta 92
That's why the Beretta 92 holds 17 rounds...You need 17 rounds to put an enemy down..One 45 acp placed anywhere on the body will incapacitate if not stop a Tango in its tracks.
