Thanks for the replies.

Question - so a JHP .45 has a lot of stopping power yes?!

Against a person it has plenty. Against a Kodiak bear, not so much.

Hang on, JD. I've got this one...

Are you nuts? How can you say something like that without a doctor's note? The simple act of carrying a 1911 is equivalent to shooting someone 27 times in the aorta with any other handgun produced in the history of metallurgy! BLASPHEMER!!!! I've shot down satellites using spent casings expelled by a 1911, and when I did it, my hair grew back and my tallywhacker got so hard that a cat couldn't hang onto it! If you can't kill the entire North Korean Army with 7 rounds of .45 ACP out of a 1911, you might as well learn how to do that Hannibal Lecter thing where he makes the guy that threw spooge on Agent Starling's face after being able to smell her cha-cha kill himself, because talking a BG into suicide is harder than killing the entire North Korean Army without a 1911! Or something.

Big and slow is the way to go!

Big holes mean more leaks out!

When you drop the blood pressure you drop the target!

The .45 ACP, killing goblins for over 100 years!

My CE came with factory 8 rounders. With 1 in the tube I feel confident in taking out anything short of the entire Chinese army. I always carry at least one extra mag. Both full of 230gr Winchester Bonded JHPs. Knock down power at its finest gentleman.
