Just get the job done before your 9 are gone. Love the 1911. I have one in Sig C3 form, but wish it held a few more.

I have a S&W 9mm M&P9 compact that I conceal carry and the wife has a Kahr PM9. I am thinking about getting the M&P 45 as well I reakky like the feel of the M&P's. I will need to buy another set of dies for my Dillon reloader.Hirobo Evo 50 ,Jr9303 ((( Are Those Things Hard To Fly ?? Nah !! Snicker )))

I read an article in Gun Tests Magazine last month that rated 3 1911's
Kimber was first, Springfield second and the Colt Gold Cup Last. I never thought the Colt would be Dead Last. I have been a Colt fan for years I have a Colt Satin Nickel 1911, an Old Colt 25, two Colt Revolvers and a Sig 1911. Looks like I'll have to try a Kimber.

i'm not sure whey they picked the 1911 for duty. Its an outdated design, overly complex, expensive, and low capacity.

Now don't get me wrong here, i have a 1911 (kimber custom target 2 stainless) and love it. But if i had to pick one to defend myself, it would either be my glock or similar modern polymer pistol. Simpler, just as tough, higher capacity. Never fails to function.

Yup
No Doubt,

Glocks pretty much work every time.

I shoot a lot of IDPA CDP and have yet to see a Glock not work.

My 1911 was parked a long time ago after it cost me a couple of stages.

I started shooting USPSA in 1997 and IDPA in 1998 and I've seen countless failures of the Glocks over the years. Though virtually all of them were the result of magazines. Which is the exact same cause of virtually all failures that I've seen with 1911's. So if anything cost you a couple stages in a match, it was likely either a bad magazine or poor workmanship on the part of your gunsmith.

I've got a few Tupperware guns in my safe -- my favorite, by far, is the Five-seveN -- but I can't bring myself to buy a Glock. Just can't get past the grip design and crappy trigger.

Not likely there will ever be another combat handgun that remains in service for more than 100 years practically unchanged from its original design ... like the "outdated" 1911 has.

slightly off topic but on the subject of .45 cal. I begun fabrication of my .45 rifle suppressor for my short barrel AR15-45. Will try it on my 1911 once I get a threaded barrel for it.

A monocore design with 6 baffles (7 chamber). Ought to be quite stealthy and coming together nicely.

and yes.... I do have an approved ATF Form 1 for it.

Some designs stand the test of time and combat, such as the 1911. It's hard to improve on the M2 .50 cal either. Overly complex? It has a low parts count and is very reliable unless gunsmithed for match shooting. Low capacity? You don't need 19 rounds in the magazine when the bad guy falls down after being shot once.

There is no doubt it stood the test of time. Its still a great gun. Like i said, i have one!! It would not be my go to weapon for self defense though. There is a reason most Police departments and military carry modern polymer pistols. Higher capacity, even more reliable, simpler, lighter.

As far as one hit to stop a person, yes, statistics say this is true, believe it or not from anything from a 22lr to a 45acp.

Some say, if you really practice, you don't need many rounds in that situation. I'd say, if your life is on the line, stack the odds in your favor. Good cartridge, good gun, carrying as much ammmo in the clip/clips as possible. Higher capacity is all the better for armed forces, because in a defensive situation here at home, we may have one or two attackers. In combat, someone cornered may be fighting off onsalughts of attackers with their sidearm. Again, more bullets is always better paired with knowing how to use the weapon well and make the hits count.

as far as overly complex, i'll say this:

i can field strip my glock/s into four pieces (frame-barrel-slide -guide/spring) and have it back to together within about 15 seconds. Cleaning is also far easier.

My 1911 takes a bit longer. I think there are 6 main parts (slide-barrel-barrel bushing-main spring-guide-frame) and i'd say assembly disassembly takes about 2 minutes.

My only complaint about the 1911 design is the locking lugs and magazines. magazines seem to be hit and miss as far as feeding, where as glock magazines seem to always function. the locking lugs also start to give you issues if you run too many rounds through without cleaning them.

the glock will also start to have issues if you shoot too much without cleaning, but i think thats somewhere around the 10k round mark

here is a good article about glock reliability. I don't think a 1911 would stand up to this.
