I got this mostly because I wanted a single action. I took it out to the range and shot it along with my .357mag to test the recoil of the 2 guns, shooting 125gr for the mag and 225gr for the .45. (both hollow points) Over all. I like the .45 better. less recoil and noise with a bigger bullet. Only issue is the plastic grips. They don't look good, and I don't like them.
