Well, you are using your head. The M1911A1 has been available in 9mm for many years.
The problem is that 9mm ball is not a very good round. If someone is excited and/or drugged, they can take a handful of 9mm ball and still have enough fight left in them to kill you before they die.
I say, bring back the .45. It is a proven fight-stopper. And .45 ball (non-expanding) works great.

No, parsy, it is the slug. If I shoot someone with a 9mm, he ignores it. If I shoot him with a .45, he lies down and plays dead. I rather like that.
