I am considering changing my primary carry to a pistol.  Has any one had any experience with the Ruger in .45 ACP? I currently carry a .44 Bulldog so I am not worried about the recoil.  I know the feds carry it in 9mm or 40 S&W respectively.

I would like to hear what Evil Genius has to say about this one. From what I understand, it is a fantastic pistol, but that is a much more limited experience in comparison.

That is what I hear, the amusing part is die hard .44 fans and die hard .45 fans are always arguing.  I am wanting more ammo, but want reliability with some stopping power. I detest 9mm I used one in the military and hated it. I nicknamed them bottle caps. The other end is cost analysis, .44 special has been slowly increasing due to its fall in popularity. I have to normally special order it. When it gets to my house I have had incidents where its been sitting on my front porch, in the sun all day, CLEARLY MARKED SMALL ARMS ON THE BOX!! They are suppose to get a signature for it, and not from someone underage.

More recently, the laziness of many postal employees has caused many packages to become damage or lost. Just ask Evil Genius about his ammo delivery some time. For me, I have only had bad experiences with the postal service when it comes to females.

I had one female that would throw things from her truck at my door if it would not fit in the mailbox. It would make it partially up the drive, no where near the door.

I called and complained and she would walk partially up to my house and I would hear a package hit my door as she threw it at my house.

Well, called again, she then started crushing the packages so they would fit in the mail box, even damaging the mail box to fit things in it.

Fortunately, she is finally no longer delivering things at my house.

I had a similar experience. Some temps working around Christmas time threw a light box at my door. Well the light box was a nice buck skinning knife I had ordered. Opened the door and yelled down at them to stop throwing my packages.  They looked like that shit themselves.  Good times good times.

I did that to one female postal worker, who threw a gift I bought for a family member. It was not damaged, but I shouted, "This was a ten thousand dollar ornament and you threw it!" They kept say 'so sorry' and 'is it broken' over and over. It was a plastic toy of something the kid liked. That was last year. She was a temp/seasonal before I had postal chucker big Bertha. She was a big woman, ha!

Ruger has a 10mm on the 1911 platform; I've played with it and I like it A LOT!

I haven't shot a 10mm before. Might see if they have one at the range next time I go. Don't have to ask this time!!
