About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed by John Browning and was adopted by the United States Ordnance Department along with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol in 1911. It has also been made the official military handgun chambering by several other governments, notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. This is a heavy and powerful sub-sonic round. Although its muzzle energy can exceed 400 ft-lbs, its velocity and bullet weight creates a steep trajectory curve that limits its effective range to self-defense distances.

Just a good ole pistol
By RunninNgunnin on 24 Jan 2020
These pistols are a great choice for someone on a budget. I've seen and bought a few in the past decade or so for around the $200 mark. They are reliable pistols and a good defensive pistol with a high capacity magazine. Only downfall is they are a bit bulky and not easily concealed. But as a truck gun, nightstand gun, or open carry they are just fine. Can't go wrong if you find them sub $200.
