For me, I like a gun choice that has been torture tested in the real world for at LEAST 80 years. As Kim Du Toit pointed out... it's killed more Tojos, Nazis, and Pinkos than any other pistol in the US inventory (the Luger or some OTHER German pistol might have more Pinkos under its belt, but I'm just not getting a Nazi gun.) Heck, I have a Garand, so I HAVE the rifle that qualifies for this criteris.
This will be my Buy A Gun Day gun, even though it is 2 months early. Next week. A trip to the gun store after this weekend's Fun Show in Chantilly Virginia get's a crack on some other monies I squirrelled away. Then I'll post a good picture (of MINE) rather than one I stumbles on on the intarwebz. Hopefully it will look like this when I get mine:
And then we will be 3 work buddies with brand new personal .45s and an inexpensive range 2 miles from work for lunchtime practice. What could be better?
Oh, right... free ammo. Well you can't have everything.
