    Cool Stoopid Question #1 .45 acp

    I haven't ever owned a semi-auto pistol (but Obama may be begging me to get one sooner than later ) so I am obviously a little ignorant about the subject. What does ACP stand for? Regarding .45s what is a 1911? Seems like everyone makes one; Colt, Browing, High Standard. What is the difference between a pick-your-brand 1911 and say, a Ruger P90?

    ACP = Automatic Colt Pistol. Lots of info here about 1911's....better than I can explain:

    The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps! (Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945)

    Default 45acp

    WOW, wide open question without simple answers.
    1911, 1911 a1, LDA from para ordnance, double actions, single actions,
    1911's from $350-$3,000, no kidding, Ruger 345, 90 97, S&W, SIG220, SIG 245, CZ 97, GLOCK, SPRINGFIELD ARMORY XD ETC.
    go ahead and try www.impactguns.com and type in 45acp in search
    www.gunblast.com same,
    I have a 1911 a1, Colt/Springfield slap together that shoots off the bench about 2 inch groups with quality ammo, SIG 220 used that outperforms the 1911, have shot and played with I believe ALL of the available handguns (or **** close to all, very nice buddies at the private range)
    Love the 45acp, magazines are cheapest (?) for the 1911a1, surplus and new, 7-8 round mags that fit flush; of course I am not including the commander and officer size models.
    Under $600 accuracy; used SIG220, then the RUGER 345/90, CZ97.
    Simplicity just look at all of them.
    okay, I started this, this will be interesting,
