.45acp vs .50 G.I.

Hey All,

If this round becomes widespread and chambered in more affordable pistols, will you of the "big and slow" school switch from your .45acp to the .50 G.I.? I know I've received the answer, "Because they don't make a .50" when I've asked "Why a .45?"

So I guess, with the 9mm vs .40 vs. .45 worn out... it's now time for .45acp vs. .50 G.I.!

Which one guys'n'gals?

Well it's a big IF but IF the .50 GI became available in a wide variety of pistols, including an affordable 1911 setup. The ammo became affordable(currently factory loaded rounds are $15 per 20 rounds for ball) at something like $10-12 per 50 in ball, and $15-20 per 25 or 50 in hollow point. Yea, I would probably switch over to .50 GI.

But I'd keep my .45 ACP 1911 for kicks and giggles to.
Of course...when I picked up the 1911...I kept my 9mm Ruger and still shoot it too. You can't have just one gun and yea, I'd like a .50 GI...but I'll have to wait until it becomes an affordable alternative.
