on youtube, live ammo, CiscoMasterGunfighter, entitled Rapid Fire Single Action Demo". 30 years ago, Rob leatham, using a 44 Mag Ruger SA and full power 240 gr jhp ammo, got 5 bowling pins off the table, at 7 yds, in 5.0 seconds. That's the same size target as a man's torso at 20 yds. maybe 30m, depending upon the size of the effective hit. you can hit the pin solidly but slightly off center and NOT get it off the table, folks.. The .44 has enough power to move the pin off the table with a hit that will not suffice if the .45 is used. So in effect, the target is about 3/4" wider for the .44. Guys clear the table in sub 4 seconds with .45 autos. 9mm's aint got the momentum needed to reliably get a pin off the table with one hit. VERY few people can post times under 5 seconds with any handgun.
