Anyone who thinks a 45 ACP +P at 40 yards and under is a popgun
Also to the original post, does anyone want to talk about the legality of this. It is illegal here(Wyo) to dispatch an animal w/ anything other than a legal hunting caliber. FWIW
I understand the OP's snap decision w/ the .45, I probably would have done the same. I doubt I would have been carrying it though.
