    I have heard that a 10mm fired out of a typical 5" barrel loses vaporization velocity right around 620 yards. At a half mile it will only knock you down, kick dirt in your face and sleep with your wife.

    Your thoughts' and comment's will be entertained...ccc...[stirpot]

    That may be true. But only if the cartridge is fired from a NON 1911.

    Fire it from a 1911 and it is good for at least 2500 yards before it even starts to slow down.

    Well I would be skeptical of the above statement... simply because air resistance on the projectile, will cause the projectile to "Start" slowing down as soon as it leaves the near field of the muzzle, of the barrel. FireArm projectiles are unpowered once they leave the near field of the muzzle. there is no further input of energy, so they MUST slow down, from that point on. That is just the Laws of Physics...

    But...if you listen to 1911 afficianados, the 1911 is the firearm equivalent of Chuck Norris...and the normal laws of physics and ballistics just don't apply..

    What are you guys jabbering about. Look at the ballistics and energy of the diminutive 7.62x25. It kicks all their norris azzes

    511 ftlbs and 1700 fps from muzzle out to 1000 yards*in a vacuum

    What is worse than getting hit by a mosquito traveling 100 MPH?

    Getting hit by an elephant traveling 20MPH.

    What is worse than getting hit by an elephant traveling 20MPH?

    Getting hit by an elephant traveling 20MPH that was fired from a 1911. :D

    Gotta try and keep things in perspective, Visu. ;)

    What is worse than getting hit by an elephant traveling 20 MPH fired from a 1911? A water buffalo traveling 2x the speed of sound at 100 yards fired from a prone position out of an AR10. YMMV.

    Of all those, I never want a fly hitting my tonsils at 100 mph, ever again. (Gotta remember to stop grinnin' at speed.)

    Oh lawdy! But everyone knows that a 10mm 1911 is by default a NON 1911.

    As translated from the original ancient manuscripts by Fr. Frog.
    © copyright 2002 by John C. Schaefer
    1 In the beginning was the 1911, and the 1911 was THE pistol, and it was good. And behold the Lord said, "Thou shalt not muck with my disciple John's design for it is good and it workith. For John made the 1911, and lo all of his weapons, from the designs which I, the Lord, gave him upon the mountain."
    2 "And shouldst thou muck with it, and hang all manner of foul implements upon it, and profane its internal parts, thou shalt surely have malfunctions, and in the midst of battle thou shalt surely come to harm."
    3 And as the ages passed men in their ignorance and arrogance didst forget the word of the Lord and began to profane the 1911. The tribe of the gamesman did place recoil spring guides and extended slide releases upon the 1911 and their metal smiths didst tighten the tolerances and alter parts to their liking, their clearness of mind being clouded by lust.
    4 Their artisans did hang all manner of foul implements upon the 1911 and did so alter it that it became impractical to purchase. For lo, the artisans didst charge a great tax upon the purchasers of the 1911 so that the lowly field worker could not afford one. And the profaning of the internal parts didst render it unworkable when the dust of the land fell upon it, and these profaners didst try and fit more rounds of ammunition into the magazines than the holy number of seven, appointed for the .45.
    5 And lo, they didst install adjustable sights, which are an abomination unto the Lord. For they doth break and lose their zero when thou dost need true aim. And those who have done so will be slain in great numbers by their enemies in the great battle. <sup>a</sup>
    6 And it came to pass that the Lord didst see the abomination wrought by man and didst cause, as he had warned, fearful malfunctions to come upon the abominations and upon the artisans who thought they could do no wrong.
    7 Seeing the malfunctions and the confusion of men, the lord of the underworld did see an opportunity to further ensnare man and didst bring forth pistols made of plastic, whose form was such that they looked and felt like a brick, yet the eyes of man being clouded, they were consumed by the plastic pistol and did buy vast quantities of them.
    8 And being a deceitful spirit, the lord of the underworld did make these plastic pistols unamenable to the artisans of earth and they were unable to muck much with the design, and lo these pistols did appear to function.
    9 And the evil one also brought forth pistols in which the trigger didst both cock and fire them and which require a "dingus" to make them appear safe.
    10 But man being stupid did not understand these new pistols and didst proceed to shoot themselves with the plastic pistol and with the trigger cocking pistols for lo their manual of arms required great intelligence which man had long since forsaken. Yet man continue to gloat over these new pistols blaming evil forces for the negligent discharges which they themselves had committed.
    11 And when man had been totally ensnared with the plastic pistol, the lord of the underworld didst cause a plague of the terrible Ka-Boom to descend upon man and the plastic pistols delivered their retribution upon men. And there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the land.
    12 Then seeing that the eyes of man were slowly being opened and that man was truly sorrowful for his sinful misdeeds, the Lord did send his messengers in the form of artisans who did hear and obey the teachings of the prophet and who didst restore the profaned 1911s to their proper configuration, and lo, to the amazement of men they didst begin to work as the prophet had intended.
    13 And the men of the land didst drive out the charlatans and profaners from the land, and there was joy and peace in the land, except for the evil sprits which tried occasionally to prey on the men and women of the land and who were sent to the place of eternal damnation <sup>b</sup> by the followers of John.

    None of the above weapons can hold a candle to my Ar-15 with a supressed .22 conversion i can shoot a gnat off a plate of grits at 5000 yard and not move the butter... it also will knock an elephant over with a one shot kill and wipe out MZB's by the truck load with out them having an idea of whats going on... so says the Prophet Melvin.... and we know that he would never lie or misrepresent any facts...
