Default After 30 years, the Marines are returning to the Colt .45 pistol
The newest Colt .45-caliber pistol is touted for its durability and design.

It is tested to make sure it can be dropped in water, covered in mud, immersed in sand or ice, or left in a dust storm and still be able to blast off a round when you pull the trigger.

"Virtually, it's indestructible," said Casimir Pawlowski, who works in international sales and technical sevices for Colt Defense LLC. "You can drive over these things with a Humvee and they're still gonna work. It's like a brick that shoots bullets."

Interesting tidbit from the article for those who don't have time to read it all.
Colt gives a pair of customized guns to each standing president, though Bill Clinton was the only one not to accept the offer, Hinkley said. http://www.stripes.com/news/after-30...istol-1.186159

There's also that part about the military's longevity.

Which would include a necessity for fresh replacement of recruits.

The only gun to come on the market that IMHO re-invented the market is the Kriss Super V

How it works.



This is a video of the Kriss which is caliber-ed in 45 at full auto



Now here's the Thompson, you'll see how it bounces around a lot more.

Too little recoil becomes a spent ammo problem.

.45 vs 9mm in that supper V gun, he might have had twice as much time actually firing between clips.

Soon it will be raining Glocks, as Glock owners, already known as mindless trend-followers, dump their plastic to buy the new (real) thing.

Yep.
Give me a German manufactured 9mm any day of the week. Watch me smile!

Soft recoiling, ultimately reliable, plentiful and inexpensive ammo, high magazine capacity, accurate, and (with the right load) plenty hard hitting. What's not to love?

When it comes to defending my life, I am worth a more expensive ammo.

Or a girly man. Real men can handle a .45 for hours on end and enjoy it. I do.
