M1911 VS. .357 Magnum.

Post  Ashes on Sun Jun 23, 2013 1:24 pm

The .357 is a nice weapon. It's an intimidating and powerful alternative sidearm that officers of the CCA carry, while staying semi-modern and of a fairly realistic to have the winners of a 7 hour domination of Earth find and use. But considering it, the M1911 is just as good, if not better. It fits all of the roles of the .357 magnum, and is a superior general use side-arm. The .45 ACP round is something that rivals even submachine gun's rounds. It is semi-automatic, has a better grip, a larger magazine, a safety, it can use attachments, it doesn't require as much frequent cleaning as the .357 magnum. I don't see why the CCA could overlook it? And although it is actually designed in 1911, when was the original .357 magnum designed? 1934. The M1911 also has less recoil, and even though this may not be important, follow up shots are much easier to recenter. CCA might make a change?

Do remember a few things that differentiate them

1:The 357. magnum NEVER jams

2:The 357. over all has more power behind it, being a manual hammer instead of the crappy M1911 semi-auto, which still needs cleaning

3:The magnum is just more badass and elite looking than a shitty pistol

Semi-Auto's will beat any revolver in reload time, rate of fire and accuracy . But revolvers are much easier to clean and generally allow users to load two different calibers of ammunition. I've shot both kinds and any day I'd choose a semi-auto over a revolver.  

.45 - Bigger round, Way more stopping power.
.357 - Smaller round, more speed.

Anyways this should be in the off topic area.

It really isn't to see what is better. I just think the .357 gives a feeling of power and fear which is why I see the HC uses it.

Idk what the point of those pictures are. Very biased. In the top you have very realistic if not real pictures of painted and custom designed 1911's, sitting on a cloth, probably never used, with a chrome finish.

The second picture is a rusty poorly pixilated magnum sitting on concrete in a game.

Wtf is that prooving.

Im not sure if your trying to get the .357 replaced, but that's not gonna happen.
1- because we'd need a new addon just for the gun anyway.
2- Theres a reason the .357 is still around.
Like magnum said, it never jams, and it's got more power behind it.
The main reason the combine use it, is appearance.
3. Again I will say it cause no one seems to remember it in my posts.
Combine control through FEAR.
It's all about the appearence, the sounds, the exaggerated looks.
The CCA don't need gas masks, it's to hide their human faces to make them seem more powerful than you, more frightening.
The combine elites have one red eye isn't practical at all. It probably reduces natural vision, and it's a BRIGHT RED EYE, SURRONDED BY BRIGHT WHITE ARMOUR. Thats not camoflauge for a soldier in any way. Does it look cool and scary as hell though? Yes. 
With all their advanced tech, is it practical to have gunships and dropships so loud? Are they all that fast? No. Are they scary and alien? Yes.

The .357 is huge, shiny, and booming loud. Naturally, too, without this chrome finish and custom painting.
With it's other perks along with being a super intimidating gun, it fits right into the combine's needs.

Accually a possibility about the one eye is that its a form of NV goggles, yes there ARE NV goggles with one eye
