I never doubted one CAN handle a, say, 5inch long gun in .45 ACP, the question of this thread is: Does it make sense or do the "classic" small pistol calibers do the job with only slightly less power?
Strictly spoken for myself, I have already answered the question, and for my super-small otion I prefer 8 rds of .22lr over 6 rds of anything larger.
