Smaller caliber and less magazine capacity? Not likely!

My new toy. Flush magazines hold 12 rounds of 45ACP, extended hold 14. This pistol is tighter than any custom 1911 I’ve handled.

    Nice! I’ve often said I’d carry .45 if I could have more than 8 rounds in it. Now to see if this will fit my tiny Hobbit hands…

    Over 3 pounds loaded… Looks like a great range gun.

    For carry I’ll stick with a sub 2 pound single stack 9mm 1911 that isn’t actually a bother to have on me all day every day.

    Grand Power P45 (a .45 ACP version of the K100 aka STI GP6) is probably better.

    Holds ten rounds, superior recoil characteristics and weighs in at 2 ounces under 2 pounds.. (without ammo)

    Now, if only it also came in .357 or 10mm Auto..

    A double stack 1911 and flared magwell isn’t really idea for CC… beautiful looking piece though.

  5. Nathaniel says:

    If I got caught in a firefight with only a .45, I’d wish I had a .223.

    Just sayin’…

    Pistols seem underpowered for house-guns.

    About the only sure way of completely dropping someone quickly in is hitting them in the vitals with rifle rounds or completely riddling them with pistol bullets, or one-two loads of buckshot.

    Show-offs can do the same with head or heart-shots, but like in real life, to reliably land such shots you either need exceptional skill or take time to aim at a stationary enemy – which is a luxury and one you can’t hope to have when the time comes.

    Anything less and you risk getting shot by someone who is wounded, which at close range is a possibility.

    I’m thinking a Saiga shotgun would make a neat house-gun. Pity submachineguns are all banned, a .22LR smg like the American 180 is deadly, unlikely to over-penetrate , etc etc and can be fired from the hip easily.

    “On the other hand, the gun you’re not carrying because it’s huge and heavy is no use in a firefight.”

  8. Kermit says:

    Looks suspiciously like the frame used for the old Kimber Polymer Custom guns… sounds like identical capacity, too.

    Not so new, just more posh (do like, though). Been EDC a Para P12-45 I’ve had for 13 years. Alloy frame, grip no wider than 1911, just a little blockier. Disappears on me IWB, and I have pretty big hands anyway. Just coincidentally, it carries 12+1, and the P14 mags lock in for followups.
