My “Go To” pistol in a SHTF situation would definitely be my Colt .45 Government Model. In a pinch I would like the proven knock down power the .45 provides. I choose the Government model over my Commander model simply because of the longer barrel which should provides for a little more accuracy.
I bought this gun after doing a lot of research when I returned from Iraq. One of my soldiers’ wife was killed by another soldier who was doing an initiation for a gang in the Seattle/Tacoma area 2 weeks before we redeployed. That affected me so much that I was determined to get a reliable, accurate semi automatic handgun. I knew that one day I would get my CCDW, however, at the time I was active duty and leaving Ft. Lewis Washington and enroute to my next duty assignment in Los Angeles, Kalifornia (I spell Kalifornia with a “K” because of its completely insane laws against firearms among other things!).
