is going BACK to what worked GREAT! Now dump the sissified 5.56mm and get back to a REAL round, the 30.06. (The Gunny needs MORE MilSurp ammo)
There is NOTHING like 230 grains between the running lights to neutralize a threat.
EXCERPT: “It’s been called the greatest handgun ever made, and it has barely changed sine 1911, when the legendary John Browning designed it especially for the U.S. Military. And now, the Colt .45 M1911 is making a big comeback, now that the U.S. Marines have placed a $22.5 million order for the Connecticut-made pistols. The gun, which has been wielded on film by John Wayne and in real life by Sgt. Alvin York and Maj. Audie Murphy, was the standard-issue sidearm in the military for decades, until it was replaced by the Beretta M9 in 1985 (and Marines were NOT happy, Corporal Gunny among them! haha). Colt Defense, based in Hartford, Conn., will supply as many as 12,000 of the 200,000 U.S. Marines with semi-automatic, tan-colored M45 Close Quarter Battle Pistols, and they will include spare parts and logistical support. The gun has long been the weapon of choice for special operations agents, thanks to its reliability and the stopping power of its massive bullets.”
The Gunny’s choice of .45acp and got it in two-tone. (13rd magazine, night sights, Picatinny rail…)
