I bet most of you guys who like the 45's don't practice like I do with my 9mm simply because of the cost involved.
I like the 45 and practice alot with it. I reload for about 5.25 a box. So cost is not a factor for me.
I've found factory .45 for less than $6/box in the past (on sale at Gander Mountain) and can reload my own for a little over $4/box. A typical practice session uses up somewhere between 250 and 500 rounds.
And I think practise and center mass hits are more important than carrying a 45 just cause its a 45.
How about center of mass hits with a .45? I practice center of mass hits (both single and double taps) while standing, kneeling, advancing, retreating, moving to either side, from behind cover, single handed (both strong and weak hand), in daylight, low-light and no-light (gotta love tritium!! ).

Also, I hope people don't forget to practice one of the most important parts of a defensive shot ... the draw from concealment! Being a good shot doesn't do you much good if the sights get caught on your sweatshirt or you try to aim with a handful of jacket!

Found this thread by accident while doing a search for something else. Looks like it hasn't been dead too long.

Is anybody familiar with the gun laws in Georgia?? I am over 21 years old and have registerd firearms. In Georgia, what do you have to do to legally carry a loaded firearm in your car?? How about getting a liscense to carry/conceal?? The last I heard is that you can legally carry a loaded firearm in your car if it's in plain sight. And I also heard you can't get a liscense to carry/conceal without a reason or being a liscensed security guard. I think you also had to take the usual "hunting safety course." Can anybody help me out, or does anybody know if this is correct???

Thanks!

Depends on what I am doing, you thoughts please?

If I am out and about, bad area at night, late night walamart trip etc... I use the Kel-Tec P3AT. I love that thing but not exactly a target gun. For out in the desert with the potential for anything I normally carry my MIL PRO PT145, smalled 10+1 .45 that I am aware of that you can get a full grip on. I carry it either open for deterence or IWB depending on area.

It seems this post has gotten into a what can you shot or can't shoot legally, any CCW class teaches that you need a plan and to stick with it. I personally have decided that nothing I own is worth another humans life no matter how big a dirt bag, it is also not worth the legal fight and the following civil suit. I have thought about this pretty hard and it may sound selfish but my plan (no kids) is to pull the trigger if my or my spouses life is immediatly about to end. All the talk about 15 yards is not common, it will be within 5 yards and last only a few seconds. Better be ready to be treated like a criminal when the cops show up, they will want to know where the money and drugs are, that is just what happens, hear in Tucson 90 percent of homicides are drug or gang related. The common scenario given is you are in a convienence store in the back an a guy pulls a gun on the teller. What do you do? My answer is nothing, they know the drill they even train the clerk how to get robbed, heck it might even be his buddy. Most store robbies go without violence. Now don't get me wrong I will be in the back row at the ready position and if a weapon comes around that corner two bullets will leave my gun. I am not a cop and it is not my fight, in any given situation I will use my best asset and that is my eyes to take as many snap shots as I can to pass onto law enforcement. I welcome all commenst to my thoughts as I believe the responsibility of carrying a loaded gun is a never ending learned curve.

No matter what one shot will cost about 30,000+ dollars.

Colorado law defines justified use of DEADLY FORCE:
If your or a member of your party is in IMMINENT DANGER OF LIFE OR SERIOUS BODILY HARM.

This doesnt include convienince store clerks or the rape scenario defined earlier.

Best to disconnect yourself from this type of situation if it occurs.
However if the perpatrator levels a weapon towards you then BANG BANG applies.

Having taken a couple of personal protection/firearms courses the rule of "Seven Steps of Death" comes in to play.
Basically it means that any type of threat with any type of weapon within seven steps of you has the potential to be fatal to you.
Majority of shootings occur @ less than 10 feet.

Carry weapon is a Glock 27 40sw. Truck/Home weapon is a Glock 20 10mm, with Double Tap Ammo, speer gold dots, 165gr.

The 10 is a force to be reckoned with. Hits harder than a .41 magnum and makes a .45 look like a rubber band gun.

Get you a good Maglite or Brinkman flashlight, the big 5 cell ones. Pack a good punch and you cant get in trouble for having it

Being in the UK, guns are a big No No. BUT I love firearms - fired many airguns here in the UK and went to my Uncle in Florida and shot a Colt .45, Ruger .45, Ruger .38, Glock 17, MP5 9mm, and a 30-06 Bolt action rifle. Loved it. Would love to try a S&W 500 or a Desert Eagle 50AE...

Maglights are not legal in some states.

Depends on the context. Same as a bat.

If you have other tools the flashlight might slide. Same with the bat, if you have a glove and a ball and you say you had practice the other day, you might get away with it.

Otherwise they are considered a club and can get you into trouble with the law.

You can always do what a couple of my scooter buddies do.......
Slip a 8 or 12 ounce ball peen hammer through the belt.

You wouldnt believe the intimidation factor on that one.

Small extremely bright flashlight.

It will disorient when shineing in someones face.

Will dissable if shoved in an eye socket and works like a roll of quarters when in a fist.

Lastly it is a handy flashlight.

I'm bored so I thought I would dig up an old thread.

There must be some of you guys out there that have a new gun you're just dying to show off.
