Also consider the availability of 45 ammo down range. I have been on ODA's deploying over the years with this exact problem set. On atleast two occasions we decided to leave the 1911's to the BN Staff to cart around due to the fact that there was no 45 ammo to be had. We COULD have taken our own with us as we deployed, but pro's did not outweigh the con's in our particular moment in time.

Love it or hate it, the M9 has a reliable and sustainable resupply source of ammunition in OEF where the 45 simply does not.

Don't overlook the training requirements.
