Just to build upon my previous poll on rotators vs. self-feeders.

No "I like them all" option on this one. No fence sitting, you gotta choose.

Yes , but I DO like them all!! I voted single, because its all about the Colt,For me. But them DA's are just so neat. My big dog is a Desert Eagle MKXIX, with .50AE, and .44 Mag barrel. Two stage trigger, fun, fun, fun, except when the hot casing hits you in the beak or lip for limp wristing it. :ghey:

I like the double action for carry because of the better saftey margin
I do not like the dao pistols though any double action is essentially a single
after the first shot in an auto anyway.

I voted double action because of concealed carry. I do like my 1911 though.

I likes 'em all too! The switch from double to single after the first shot with the Beretta was a bit odd till I got used to it though.-TR

i love both of my 1911s and both of my inglis , but when my reaction depends on my carry i carry my S&W M39 - i want to react immeadiatly not have to work the slide , i want to carry locked and loaded but safe without the safety on , that requires the double action/decocker/hammer block period

Raising the dead tonight here. Single action for me, my 1911 is my constant companion, but I can see where a double would be a nice and have looked at the Bersa for a pocket gun. DAO I would not own one if someone gave it to me.

DA/SA is the way to go for me. No need for 'cocked & locked', no need for the extra step of manipulating a safety when your life is on the line & you find yourself in panic mode.

I chose DAO because I believe this hideous creature should replace the M9 as the GI's standard issue side-arm...

...chambered in .45 ACP, of course.

Also, I'm a big fan of this little puppy...

Now that IS truly hideous! I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

They are already using the M11 (P228) 8-)
Why mess with perfection? They need to issue on a wider scale that's all

What the military needs is a reliable DA/SA double stack 45 ACP.

A-Square,

That's a model 39, right?
I understand the Coast Guard used the model 39's for quite a while.
--------------------------------------------------------

Et2ss,

That's an excellent suggestion. Way to be on the ball.
I'd forgotten about the M11, but wasn't it chambered for the 9mm?
I'm thinking, if we're going to go that route, maybe a 220 would be a better choice for an infantryman.

The 220 is a .45 single stack. The M11 (228) is a compact version of the 226. The P226 has 15 round mags, the P228 has 13 rounds. Of course Mec-Gar has 17 & 15 rounders for the same. I don't think the military will stray from the 9mm NATO as standard issue. Spec Ops already use the 45 ACP.
