If I were going into combat tomorrow there is no doubt in my mind that I would prefer to carry the 1911A1 to any other sidearm.However the NATO standard went to 9mm for the standard sidearm and that's the ammo that is stockpiled all over the place.A .45cal. pistol is pretty usless if all you can get is 9mm ammo.

I am of the opinion that there should be a heavier, man stopper round, in the service pistol.

They could even split the difference between 9mm and .45 Cal, with a .40 Cal bullet, such as the Glock 23.
