.45 Pistol Basics
A variety of companies manufacture .45 ACP semi-automatic handguns, or .45 pistols, due to the popularity of .45 ACP ammo. Because .45 ACP ammo has a low velocity and strong stopping power, firearms that are chambered for that caliber are popular among civilian shooters, the U.S. military, and U.S. law enforcement officers. For example, the famous 1911 Colt .45 pistol was originally a .45 pistol designed by John Browning that served as the standard sidearm for US Army Forces between 1911 and 1986. Although this .45 pistol has been replaced as the standard United States Army sidearm, it has not been completely phased out because of its popularity among military and civilian users.
