You are headed into the deep woods known to have lions, tigers and bears..You ONLY have two choices for a Handgun..No others..

Which would you choose ?

A Colt Single Action Army chambered in .44 Special ?

or

A Colt Delta Elete in 10 MM ?

No reason...

I would choose the 10mm first but I have two hands so why not both guns:cool: I really like my reload of a 165 grain Speer Gold dot hollow point in my Colt 10mm. It's defintly more powerful than my 44 special load.

Well since there was no restrictions on ammo , I'll take the SAA with some classic Elmer Keith .44 special handloads. A 250gr hard-cast SWC (Lyman 429421), over an appropriate amount of 2400 or Blue Dot to make 900-1000fps.

While I understand the argument of the SAA being the classic hand gun, I also think that the 1911 deserves it’s own classical reputation after 108 years on the job. I pick the Delta because I think it’s cool, and it’ll get it done.

The Colt Delta Elite has an unsupported chamber due to the failure to use a barrel with an integral feed ramp...as does the Glock 20SF...which under the stress of high pressure loads can bulge cases or worst.







Non Integral Feed Ramp Barrel Unsupported Chamber ...... Integral Feed Ramp Barrel Supported Chamber

I already have a NF in 44 Spec. Might as well choose something I don't have...as long as it's free :)
