I started out with a S&W 1917 in .45 ACP.
I switched to a Taurus 6" .357; it stretched!
I traded up for a S&W 686; terrific.
I won a 1911 in a completion and had it built up,
by a custom gunsmith, for IPSC.
With Hogue grips, that gun is an extension of my arm/hand; simply perfect. The only other gun that I've used that felt as natural as the 1911 was the H&K .45 Tactical; another natural pointer, in my hand.
The years are taking their toll, and I'm having difficulty CCW'ing the 1911.
I see that it is time to switch to something lighter, to carry, but I'll ne'er part with the 1911.
