Sprinfeild XD in .45ACP. I holds 13 in the mag and 1 in the pipe. The recoil is next to nothing and it shoots awesome.It eats any ammo I try and feed it without any issues.

High-cap .45 ACP's

Para Ordnance was the first to make wide frame, high capacity 1911's in .45 ACP, and they're still offered. Excellent quality. Ruger has some relatively high capacity .45 ACP models. STI has some high-cap models of their modified 1911 designs. For tons of money, I believe that Wilson is now offering high-cap models of their 1911's. There are undoubtedly others, but those are the ones I can remember offhand.

Come on raffy. I told you I don't hate Glocks. Clearly they are one of the most dependable handguns on the market. I don't have one yet. I was doing my research and the 23 is the one I would buy. My cousin has 3 or 4. The one I don't like is the subcompact 40 cal. There is no place to put half my damn fingers, because of my meat hooks.lol With so many of them out there and so many agencies that use them, they can't be wrong.

The salesman thing was a compliment you bonehead! Most everyone I know that shoots has a Glock. I don't have one and have only sent a few rounds using someone elses. So I haven't learned to appreciate them as you have but I will!

I don't have a Glock

I have a Colt and love it. Although it is my
second choice to my 357. I'm just a wheel
gun man. And the 357 is more powerful,

.45

1. Many guns in .45acp, notably various designs from Glock, Kimber, Colt, SIG, & Springfield Armory meet various accuracy requirements from specialized police and military end-users. Unless you're looking for a very specific target accuracy requirement, any of the above should be more accurate than the shooter if fed proper ammo. Wilson, SVI, and others also make high-cap .45s, but makor $$$.

2.You might also consider the .45GAP (Glock)......45 bullet, with good target and social ammo from Speer and Winchester. Smaller frame than the Glock 21/30 series; growing use in some large LE agencies.

You're not supposed to, because the rifling in Glock barrels is different than most other barrels, and lead bullets leave more fouling in Glocks. I used to shoot lead bullets through my Glock 22, but I ran a bore brush through it every few magazines at the range to be safe.

thats what i read too

thats what i heard too run also heard it embeds in the barrels some how but i havent read any thing yet if so to me why have a gun that this may cause a problem in incase cast is all your going to have whitch maybe with things going like they are and in my opinon in my own common sence of thinking i d get some thing that works not matter what ammo you have there again the good old 1911 and it was made for lead ball ammo and been used for a 100 years some thing to be said about that alone

Yeah, poor Glock

I think I'll buy a different gun since all my self defense ammo is cast lead bullets.

cast lead in Glocks

according to Glock (I've called them directly before about this), if the bullets aren't jacketed, their polygonal rifling will cause more fouling than most standard barrels. It will build up over time. They don't recommend shooting lead at all. They also don't recommend re-loading (as most gun companies don't) which is what the majority of cast lead bullets are. I've personally shot cast rounds out of my Glock 20 with no problem, but I always clean out the bbl really good afterwards with a little windex on a patch. Then I've found that S&W heavy bore cleaner removes lead pretty well. I did end up buying a Lone Wolf bbl strictly for lead rounds now so I don't have to worry about it. The 20 is the only Glock that I shoot lead through. Jacketed rounds in the others
