    Somebody help me? Why does the .45 have such a huge following? Yes I understand it has over a 100 yrs of reliability, great stopping power and is incredibly simple. But why not a 9mm or a .40. They both are much lighter, have a larger capacity and have more than enough stopping power to get the...

    Anyone have one? Looking at picking one up, but am debating currently between the G21 and this as a SHTF sidearm. There are things that I love about both, and drawbacks to both for me, however I was curious what others thought, particularly if you own one or the other, or both. Cheers, Bulk

    Smith & Wesson has put out this M&P 45 acp pistol. 10 rounds of 45 acp looks pretty good. Has anyone seen it or had the chance to fire off a few rounds? There is a write up in this months issue of guns and ammo. But the article only created more questions then it answered.
