Pretty much agree, the recoil on the high velocity 40's is big, return to target more difficult, but still my Glock 30 is very easy back to target and accurate as hell, that's my only real 45 I'll have (except 1911). I've done well with it in competition (30), the blast from my 357sig was so severe it was hard to get quick followup shots, just getting the trigger finger to respond was tough....... 8-OFlaChef said:Sorry to be the voice of dissent here, but "No Thanks."
It's all 9mm for me from here out, would probably redo the first M40 purchase in 9mm if I could. To me the ballistics and extra time to get back on target do not offset (nor does the price, or the "one shot stops" data from the street).
But yes they should build them. America Loves the .45. Look at the HK USP sales and see which caliber outsells all the others.
Or look how fast the new .45ACP XD is selling when they couldn't give away the XD in GAP.
There is only one gun I want in a .45ACP and that is a 1911 (which I WILL build myself one of these days), and that's for the mystique not the size of the hole.
