I prefer something with a bit more...you know, cut a home invader in half..."stopping power".

Hey, if you run out of ammo you can always beat them over the head with it.

I completely agree with you. The weapon is very necessary thing. Unfortunately in Russia it is impossible to buy the weapon. But I like to shoot. Not in air as you in America and even on a target. I assort АК-74 for 41 second. And here is the best pistol you ever find in all world!
Russian TT (10x32T!) exactly!
And american weapons sucks

Do you think all we do is shoot in the air? Shit, we shoot each other.

Oh, and by the way, the 1911 Colt .45 Automatic, Thompson and Garand M1 rifle are three of the finest, most battle tested weapons ever produced.

Because they are old. The Colt .45 automatic was, as the name implies, first introduced in 1911. The Thompson .45 sub-machinegun was originally designed as a trench sweeper in response to World War One. Its design dates from 1917. The Garand M-1 was designed in 1932.
Now, they are mainly collector's items, although the M-1 is still used in some capacity by drill teams.

so if we were to talk a modern home protection wepon am i making the right choice in your opinion?, my reasoning is that if loads of the worlds military,special forces as well as loads of US agiencies and police forces use it there must be a good reason for it.

Oh yeah, a Sig, Glock or Beretta can't really be a bad choice.
A Thompson .45 wouldn't be the most practical choice. Alot more fun though.

The M1 ceased service operation with the US military in 1963. It was developed into the M14 rifle which saw widespread use in Vietnam and is still popular today amongst military marksmen.

The Colt M1911 pistol is still the default sidearm for many militaries around the world.

Just cause a weapon is old doesnt mean its no good :P

The United States only went away from it to standardize with NATO.
As for stopping power, nothing you can hold with one hand has more than the M1911 Boomstick.

Of course, all of this was the result of my response to the nimrod who said American guns are shit.

I'd probably take a .50 desert eagle for stopping power (just in case I ever need to plug someone through an engine block), but the M1911 for reliablility (and retro cool factor )

American guns are a long way from shit, so whoever said that has no idea what they are talking about.

Yeah, but I did mention in one hand and I'm pretty sure Katie would need both hands to pick it up, let alone aim it.
And I'm not being sexist here...I'm pretty sure I'd need two hands too.

Vodka boy thinks our guns suck. Too bad the best AK-47s aren't made by Kalashnikov.
Valmet > Kalashnikov.

If your heart is set on a Sig, get this one.
P220 Compact. It's a .45, so it'll give you more stopping power, and it's compact so it's easier to carry.
