So I made the mistake of questioning the love many, many, many people have for the 1911 handgun platform on a non-gun forum I frequent. Since it’s a non-gun forum I was not immediately dogpiled and told that I was a freakin’ idiot who should never question the design of Saint Browning (Peace Be Unto His Name) and it’s place at the pinnacle of handgun design.
I did manage to get told that its single-stack 7+1 capacity was sufficient for any encounter I was likely to…encounter *g* unless I was unable to hit what I shoot at and needed to spray-and-pray. Now, fallacy of bifurcation aside (either 8 rounds is sufficient because you can hit what you shoot at, or it is not because you can’t) what are peoples thoughts on carry round capacity? I personally subscribe to the “2 is 1 and 1 is none” school and would always rather have more of what I don’t need than not enough of what I do, but that’s just me.
