You can get .45 factory ball ammo for about $12 for a box of fifty. *You can also buy reloads even cheaper at some stores. If money is the object, buy a used .22 semi auto.*There are plenty of inexpensive Colt, Ruger, S&W etc. around. *Buy the ammo in 1000 round boxes and it is very inexpensive. Practice with it for a couple of months. *Originally Posted by [b
The aiming and handeling characteristics of .22 and big bore handguns are pretty much the same. *When you get comfortable with the small bore, move on up to the bigger pistol. *Start out with targets at 30 feet. *Just remember, the more you practice, the better you will get.
Watch the OLN channel. *They have a program called American Shooter which is very interesting. *They had one guy on who breaks a ballon with a 1911 .45 at 100 yds.
