Deal Details

Last Edited by Teldin March 1, 2013 at 12:00 PM
(my first deal post, go easy please)

Received a deal alert from Buds Guns yesterday. They have a TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK for $400 (cash & equivalent price) with free shipping. I'm a long time gun fan and I've never heard of TISAS, however the gun has many great reviews. Unfortunately the gun is NOT on the CA DOJ list so I can't purchase one.

Pennsylvania is exactly the opposite...very relaxed gun laws and beautiful women are few and far between.

Have a few jack and cokes, sooner or later that old hag at the end of the bar will look more and more appealing.Wink

So, a 357 Mag has a lot less stopping power since it has less lead than a 45?shake head
Exactly why I was saying the debate doesn't belong here. I was only scratching the surface. Take the .22 for example... one of the smallest, slowest bullets, but it's the most common caliber for homicide. Embarrassment

Is it just me, or when I try to checkout and make an account...I never get the validation email. My junk settings are turned off and still nothing.

This has happened for Gunbroker, Gun Forums of Georgia, and now this one..

I have no idea why it keeps avoiding sending me the emails. All other site I join send the email right away.

Guns like this make me hate living in California. But when I see beautiful women left and right I realize it's not so bad here.

I have lived in both Pennsylvania and California, and these comments are spot on!!

I liked CA better, probably because I care more about the women than big guns. Besides, I already have a 'big gun' that is legal in all states. Wink

I tried very hard to NOT make a judgement call on calibers; I started by saying "I have an observation". I am not an engineer, nor did I sleep in a Holiday Inn, but I felt that I was seeing a difference between the terminal 'shock' of a .45 vs a 9 mm. That convinced ME that I'd rather a .45 than a 9 mm.
I am still in the 'dark ages'; I'm still 'stoking the fire' with Federal Hydra-Shok. The NEW stuffed hollow points give me the impression that we've moved on to something more effective for clothing penetration; glad to hear that you're on board with those.
To each his own... and you are correct; shot placement is everything.
President Ronald Regan was, I understand, mere moments away from death after being shot my John Hinkley... with a .22 pistol! On the other hand, I see that for 'those who have the need', the military is issuing .45s, again.
Food for thought... that's all.

Of that I have no doubt. But the original query was about an intruder - not a steel plate. The human body is about 70% water and a .45 or a 9mm would be equally effective all other things being equal. Personally I use RA9T in my Glock 19 as it will effectively go through denim. Now if the intruder has body armor...

As has been stated numerous times in numerous other forums - it is all about shot placement - but I am sure you know that already. Wink

That said, I think this is a slick deal - just make sure you have ammo!

Genuinely curious: what makes you feel that way?
Your kidding me right? On the chance that you are not trolling to instigate a spit ball fight here you go.

The military side arm is now a 9mm. It was a 45. Military is not a "trendy" organization. They are stubborn and sticks with what works until they can prove they have a better answer for a specific problem. Any thought that a 9mm is insufficient for its purpose is uneducated.

"Experts" dont agree on best caliber any more than best beer or luxury car. Vast majority of time you only need to threaten force, not use it. Deterrence of 9mm = 45. Pushed further, I like both. Best selection for you is the one you practice with enough to be able to place your shots with high confidence because if pulling the gun doesnt deter the bad guy then you better hit the target or you might die.

No, I'm not kidding. Why so incredulous? I genuinely was interested in his opinion.

I carried a 9mm in the military (along with my rifle), so I am familiar with it's use and characteristics. I cannot say the same for the .45. I carried a .40S&W as a federal LEO and still do. What I do know is that there are a lot of factors to consider, and the military's use of a particular weapon does not necessarily make it the best choice for every application.

I never claimed the 9mm was insufficient, just wondered what the reasoning was. I agree about the one you practice with being best for you. However, in most situations, I disagree that threat of force is enough. Maybe I am in the minority, but if I draw my weapon, chances are extremely high it will be to stop a threat with lethal force. It is not intended to be a deterrent.

It might be a good idea to get out of California.

It's all cool my babies, most everyone on this forum are all on the same team, hug no need for hostility. My 1st line of defense would be my 2 dogs, my 2nd is a Saiga 12 gauge w/ 10 rnd. mag. my 3rd is to pull an Osama Bin Laden (push my wife in front of me and scream like a little girl "don't hurt me") Big Grin because at this point I can't find any kryptonite.Confused

wow! no offense but if you live your life guided purely by unknown women, gun laws and weather I think you really need to reevaluate your life.

You Al Qward you. :-) All I expect my canine kids to do is give me enough time to grab a firearm, most likely a handgun. If the intruders have hurt or are attempting to hurt any my dogs I can only surmise they have no respect for life and will act accordingly. Otherwise they will get a challenge and a chance to surrender.

I'm considering thie one but am waiting for the duo tone to come back into stock as that will make a nice vehicle gun.
