The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Bearing Arms
I follow a lot of firearm and firearm-related websites, as part of my job here at Bearing Arms. I’ll admit that I don’t read every post on every website. There’s just too many of them. However, I do occasionally comes across something that I just have to address.
For example, there’s this one over at The Loadout Room, which is a site I generally enjoy. It argues that .45 ACP is an outdated round.
I really love to stir things up in the shooting community (especially the internet portion of it) so I’m just going to say it, “.45 ACP is outdated.” That’s not to say it isn’t effective, or that it isn’t reliable; just that it’s outdated. The .45 ACP round was developed by John Browning in 1905 and was later adopted by the United States military because it was deemed more effective that the .38 Long Coltpost was originally published on this site
