Why So Many 45 ACP Tests?
Reader McMinn wonders whether readers really want so many 1911 evaluations, or if were just infatuated with them. Reader Allen asks for an elk load for the 6.5x55but is it enough gun?
After receiving several issues of Gun Tests, I am very happy with the articles. The tests are very thorough, and as a lefty I like that you usually include info on how the gun functioned for left-handed people. However I am somewhat disappointed with what guns are chosen for tests, particularly among semi-auto pistols. It seems that there is always at least one evaluation for 45s in every issue. I would have thought that 40-cal and 9mm reviews would be more prevalent. I have to wonder, are so many 45 cals tested because thats what the readers want, or because the staff is infatuated with 45s.
