In the drawer that is directly in front of me when I am at my desk is a Springfield MilSpec 1911 in .45 acp, nine rounds.
Right next to it is a SIG P2022 9mm, 18 rounds.
If a "serious social situation" should arise, ie home invasion , I'm not completely sure which one I would grab.
I shoot the 19911 better than the SIG.
But the idea of 18 rounds vs 9 is worth pondering also.
Obviously its all conjecture until something happens, but, if I had to choose one now, I think I'd grab the SIG.
How about you?

If you had that many people Invading, it would be a party. Bring out the 30 pack instead.


Gun Shows are almost as comical as boat ramps in the Spring.

I'd grab the .45 and stuff the nine in my waistband.

One in each hand sounds about right. Shoot them with the .45 and pistol whip them with the Sig.

Neither. I'd grab my G19 loaded with Federal HST. You can keep the FMJs that you're so proud of.

Personally I don't care.

Things are based off the lowest common denominator in the house, which is my wife, who is not a shooter, so there are .38 specials tucked here and there. I have whatever I am carrying that day, or was carrying the day before usually sitting close by, and that might be a single stack 1911, or a Glock 17/19/34. It really makes little difference.


In actually pointing my guns at people literally hundreds of times over decades, I have found that my actions matter more, more than my hardware. Gaining control and maintaining control are of more importance to me. I don't care if I have a lever action or a Glock, or a .44 mag.


THE CHAIR IS AGAINST THE WALL.

The Tikka T3 in .308 Winchester is the Glock 19 of the rifle world.

High cap 9mm over a low cap .45 ACP.

The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: “Appease, Appease!”
Are hanged by men they tried to please.

Grab the one you train with the most.

I have no idea how much you train, but those two pistols have some significant differences in the manual of arms. Under stress, it might be best to grab the one you have built muscle memory with.

If you train a lot with both, it likely doesn't matter.

Which one of those do you carry to the john?

If the schit happens, murphy says it won't happen when you're sitting in front of the drawer with 2 pistols.

For Self Defense - it's the .45 ACP.

EDC: G36

And HST, +P for the G36, and Std. pressure for the 1911-A1.

The 7 shot 870 under my bed. If that runs out I have enough handguns stashed in every room to make is a sporting event.

Which has been rehashed literally thousands of times and is a worn out beat to death topic. Yeah I know, I read and replied to it but I'm kinda worn out too. But only beat half to death.


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
