BS,

They all fall to 45 hardball

BS

If you're hit in the hand you'll be blown back off your feet

BS

The pistol and cartridge are legendary, but what has been written for decades like the above is fully horse crap. Carried one and many times two 1911 45's for 28 years on the streets.

I have no more expectations from the cartridge than a 9mm where stopping aggression is concerned

Well, it is theoretically possible that a 45 (or any caliber really) hitting a hand, elbow, or ankle could potentially cause damage extensive enough that partial or total amputation would be required..

As far as "knock down" power, 45 ACP, and every other bullet out there is a slave to the laws of physics:

KE=M * V²

I remember when gun magazine writers wore out the word venerable :sick: about the 1911.

Glock has been around over 30 years, now its venerable. :sick::LOL:

I have been told that a high ranking US official said that if you get hit in your hand by a 9mm it will blow your lungs out.

I was a city firefighter and EMT in Orlando and went to lot of shootings over 30 years. Some people would have two .44 slugs in them and be sitting up talking to you and some people would be "DRT"(dead right there) from a .22 short to the torso that hit the aorta and bounced into the heart. It's all about where that thing goes and if it hits something vital enough to stop the victim. Saw a lot of immediate knockdowns on cops shows and movies.

There are NO knockdowns from pistol rounds. It's a bodies reaction to being penetrated, injured.

People lose me when they talk about pistol calibers and stopping power. Cause it just ain’t a thang.
Two things stop people, one is hemorrhaging and the other is separation of the CNS.
