Whelp. That's the end then. Not even the Marines are interested in using .45 anymore.
I figure in less than 2 years you won't be able to buy a box of Winchester White Box .45 ACP at any Walmart. Then in less than 10 online perveyors will stop offering it. In 25 years even the esoteric catalog houses won't carry it. People will look at you funny like you are trying to get .22 Jet or 6mm Lee Navy
First Jeff Cooper dies, then SaysUncle buys a 9mm M&P, and now this. .45ACP is now an orphan round. I think the Marines were the last large institution to still issued .45. Lots of those cops shops from the 90s that went Kimber have mostly switched back to 9mm. And with nobody using .45, Joe Schmoes like me have no reason to ape the usage.
All those 1911 classes for nothing! Maybe I can re-barrel them to shoot .22 TCM. Something that will be around a bit longer.
