If you want a 1911 get a .45 acp. 10mm ammo is more expensive and harder to find. Not much better balistics.

I found the recoil of the 10mm to be too snappy.
The .45 ACP was proven to be the best man stopper before most if not all of us were born.
For many years, the 45 ACP was the standard issue cartridge for our military. For good reason, as displayed in the Philippines. As we progressed in the NATO alliance, the 9 MM gained popularity, along with the fact that female soldiers could not deal with the recoil of the .45. ACP.The .45 ACP remains as the best "man stopper" due to the large frontal area of the bullet, despite its lower velocity.
