I would not consider a pistol in this cal if you gave it to me! That being said, availability of ammo is a problem, If somthing has worked for 97 years, you should probably leave it alone!!! Get a real 45!!!What's your opinion on this ammunition? I'm finding in many places here in Texas folks just aren't stocking up on it as much, is there something I don't know? What's the reason for this?
