When I was a Pin shooter, the pin had to be knocked completely off of the table.  All of the good shooters were using .45 pistols.  I was running a little over 200 power factor.

Foxtrot MIke just released a .45ACP version using Glock mags

This. I'm considering building a 45ACP PCC with this upper. A buddy of mine has a 9mm FM upper and loves it. I've run it a few times and really enjoy the manipulation of the front charging handle. If you go that route, look at adding a BAD lever or similar, as it can be tricky to manipulate the bolt hold open while racking the bolt back with your left hand on the front of the gun.

Their side charging handles are reversible. You could move the handle over to the right side and engage the BHO.

If you're a lefty, maybe. But for me, a righty, I would never want the charging handle on the front right side of the gun.
