Agreed, I always thought of myself to be a very good shot----well that was with a rifle. The first time I shot the M9 pistol I realized that I wasn't as good a marksman as I thought. It took allot of practice for me to qualify as an Expert on our pistol qualification test. I am no where near as good with a pistol as I am with a rifle, but I can more than hold my own! The thing with the pistol is that you have to practice ALLOT to get good with it!!!! Yes, a 40 yard shot with a pistol is ALLOT harder than most people realize.
How true! We are stuck with the M9s, not very accurate to start with. Qualifying with the M9 is tough. I do good with the rifle, but really have to crank down to do a decent job qualifying with the M9. Even though the military is going back to the .45, we will be the last to be issued .45s.  :'(

well most of my handgun hunting is done with a 44 mag. I got the 40 mostly for a carry gun but had to try it out for deer.I  personally like to use the handgun adds a new challenge to the hunt.
you can run but you will only leave a blood trail

I was wondering why they ever changed to the 9mm. Was it because the 9mm is more of a international round and just about every country in the world cranks them out.

Should I feel the need to arm myself with a handgun it would be in cal 45 ACP

Quite the contary. If the M9 is good for anything, that's punching holes in paper. I shot competion in the Marines using stock M9's.

Yes, a company has won the .45 contract, but I can't remember who it was. Some special forces have already transitioned back to the .45, but I think they are using the old 1911 until the new pistols are available.

The reason our military went to the 9mm is because it being a NATO round. Dumb thing to do, considering what a lousy round it is. The young generation stationed in the Sandbox has found that out, the hard way.  :sad:  >:(  :tickedoff

I know for a fact that the Marine Corps operators are using the Kimbers, and they are a great pistol. Hopefully, the rest of the military will be issued Kimbers as well. As for the 9mm round, yes it is a very lousy round!! When fighting the crazies over in the sand bow, you need as much knock down power as possible!

And that's why they call it the .50 cal "Desert" Eagle. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

You all make me feel pretty good about shooting a pistol.The last time I shot we were shooting at 30 yards calling shots.Once I was 4 inches off from my mark.

I wasn`t using a rest.
