Re: A really big 1911 question
Maybe I'm a lucky guy, But every gun I have ever bought worked fine right out of the box. No break in rounds as many claim all guns need. They are built to run smooth from the factory. What if some person that never owned a auto loader or any gun for that matter bought one for home defense, Took it home and loaded it just in case someone was to break in their home. I believe if they ever needed that gun it should work 1st time every time.
Also as mentioned above, A 45 is alot of unnecessary force not needed in normal every day police patrol. In the event of a real shoot out their would be enough 9mm flying from all of the backup the police call for that should do the job. If it is a stand off situation the swat team is called in immediately.
Police are trained to double tap if needing to use their side arm, In a stressful situation the 9mm is a quicker recovery for that second round for the average person. And as Glocknut said NATO has something to do with it. Why would some towns feel the need to use a 45 when the rest of the world is using 9mm. Maybe it has to do with political correctness.
My local PD uses 9mm but not Glock. They are using S&W M and P's. JMO, JUNK
