The Army expressed interest, but I'm not holding my breath.

i love the .45

i heard they stopped issuing the 1911 because GIs were shooting themselves too often because of the lack of a decocker (seems like an easy fix...) dunno if its true or not, i think they stopped issuing them in 85 and i wasnt born yet

M9's and 9mm rounds are cheaper.

I have a picture somewhere of me at four years old, with a 20-gauge shotgun in one hand and a milk carton full of holes. Good times

I'll look into those pistols guys. Thanks!

i was a little bit older than that when i fired a shotty.

my grandparents had their wedding reception at a skeet range and they both shot skeet in their outfits

my grandpa was a NY state champion skeet shooter and both my grandma and him are EXCELLENT pistol and shotgun shots to this very day.

The US military stopped issuing 1911s (except for the marine corps)

In favor of the cheaper m9. Additionally to adopt a NATO standard round the 9mm. The deco ker thing may also be a reason but I never heard about that.

Also be very careful when shooting the m9 or beretta92. The have a tendency of kicking back the slide when firing my old unit in the army had a few that did that granted they were old and poorly maintained IMO there are better choices then the m9.

I think all auto pistols can be started with a double action then go to single. I could be wrong about that though.

My CZ is DA/SA, as is the M9. It's my preference

I've never been a huge gun guy by any means up until the last year or so when my friends uncle took my buddy and I shooting at a private range, and my dad gave me his old Marlin .22 to save it from a lonely dusty death in the barn.

And now, my great-uncle recently passed away, leaving me with an ancient air rifle and a particularly nice Mannlicher-Schoenauer.

I've got two Mosin Nagants (one sporterized, one stock) a Mossberg 500 Persuader, a Stag AR-15, a Marlin .22 and I'm almosy finished building a custom AR. With my next check I'll be getting a reproduction 1851 Navy revolver, and my next big purchase will be a Marlin 336XLR.

Huzzah?
