What are you looking at doing with it?any complaints with the 17?
Yep, but it has stopping power. Few bad guys will get up after a few hits with a .45, even with a heavy leather jacket, and some alky in their system, which can't be said as a universal truth for a 9 mm wound. You also learn to make each round count. A 45 takes alot more discipline, but it was the side arm for the military for what was that 60 years?.Originally posted by Jack Evers
This 45 kicks like a mule and tears the bark right off my shooting hand if I fire a bunch of rounds through it.
i am starting training with local aux. police and they require that we carry ( unlike most local depts. ) i have a S&W .357Magnum revolver, now and its just a little too heavy to carry IMO. thanks to all you guys for the quick and overwelming response[iWhat are you looking at doing with it? [/B]
