I've also wondered if the .44 Desert Eagle could be considered for widespread use. Prolly too expensive, but it would be an attention getter. Even the .357 is mo better than a 9mm. Frankly I'd rather have a .38 than 9mm. You can tell I don't have much respect for pop guns in war.
Exactly. But that's just one more reason why someone shooting a .45 ACP should stick to a proven manstopper - the heavy and slow 230 grainer. (IMO)
It's pretty well established that felt recoil out of a modern, non-1911, service pistol will be manageable for most anyone in uniform.
As far as rifles go, a gas-piston AR chambered in 6.8 SPC is just what the doctor ordered. However, politics and the inertia of military logistics will probably render this entire conversation pointless.
.45 with 185 gr bullet, check
hates pop guns, check
would think it would be neat to have a .44 Desert Eagle for the attention and the off chance it would hit it's target, check
wouldn't use a pistol if over 50 feet away in combat.... unless really freaking out, check...
