1911 .45 for me.
Ditto for me too.
Id take any of JM Brownings designs, we had a old 1967 dated Mk2 Browning Hi-Power that we dropped in a can of salt water for a week, then buried it in sand for a week before throwing 200 rounds down the barrel. Needless to say, it didn't fail, and as it was a L9 it had a thick covering of suchorite which the salt didn't touch, we did have to put new springs and a barrel on it before we could reissue it though.
Although I like ANY pistol, revolver, gun, "shootin' arn", gat,
rod, heater, etc, I do love the Browning Hi Power.........
Good old Colt 1911's aren't bad either..........!
Both the Colt and Browning are proven weapons with a lot going for both, that we all know. But IMO, if you were carrying and in a tight spot, the Colt holds 7 rounds but the HP has 13, that could make the difference.

True that, Ned...but the 7 that the Colt holds are 45 sledgehammers....as opposed to the 13 speedy little 38's...

I am a Colt 1911 man also. Smooth weapon with a powerful punch. Beretta is a boat anchor or expensive paper weight.
