I'm a soldier, and I'd MUCH rather have a 1911 .45 than an M9, especially since I am limited to ball ammo. I also have no interest in a double-stack .45, since the grip is huge and hard to handle, especially with the nomex gloves commonly worn. Smaller guys and female soldiers have enough trouble with the M9, never mind a double-stack .45.Quote:

I'm also not really sure why people get all worked up about new military weapons. Most of them are one-size-fits-none designs orginated by committees who don't know jack about using weapons outside the Proving Grounds, and seldom are the design parameters directly applicable to a civilian gun carrier.
