1911 vs M1 Carbine in a Practical Match

While this isn't "combat" or even a serious match Melvin, it is interesting & entertaining. NO Melvin this IS NOT reality.

if the carbine doesn't win, with just a class B shottist vs the best in the world with 1911's, o everything beyond 50 ft, you've got a SLOW guy on the carbine

Big fan of the 1911 and M1 carbine both. There are absolutely better guns for most purposes nowadays, but maybe due to being an old fart who grew up with those two, I wouldn't be worried if they were 'all' I had to defend myself with.

It's stunning to me how the M1 carbine can be as capable as it is while being as tame to shoot as it is. The power of a .44 magnum revolver, but in a gun that shoots softer than a lot of weaker guns, even softer than a typical 9mm AR carbine. When my 8 year old neice shot one of my a long time ago (she's a nurse in Houston now), her dad had to look up the numbers before believing that it put out more power than his 7.5" .357 deer-hunting revolver.

repeat it without ear protection and the difference will be 10x as obvious, too.

Admittedly there are better platforms, but if sleepy joe wins down in your neck of the woods, you guys will be facing the "mandatory buyback" that we are. While AR's will not magically disappear overnight there will be less of them available in the future. Right now I see it as a nice game gun out to 100 yds (like a .357 mag) and a good small game cartridge.
