I believe the 45acp is a very effective round and possible better then the other pistol calibers at ranges of twenty yards and under, ( current bullet designs offer very good performance in all calibers.) Many Police Depts are switching over to 45acp for good reasons. But I keep thinking about the Officer who was off duty with his girlfriend when an active shooter entered the mall they were in, (Western US somewhere.) He was carrying a seven or eight shot 1911 (Kimber I believe.) When interviewed later on he kept saying that only having seven or eight shots played a huge factor in his decision making and he didn't bring the fight to the assailant. He did back up a local Sergeant who responded. SWAT ended up taking out the assailant when they made entry. There is something to be said for round count.
