    Two weeks ago, I fired a 1911 for the first time ever. If this is better than that, I'll reconsider my reactionary prejudice FOR 1911s. While I ain't from MO, it is now a case of "Show Me." Mind is closing rapidly, the 1911 is even more controllable than my 357. b:: b:: b:: [peep] [beat]

    Wow, I haven't met a 1911 virgin in a long time. Welcome to the club Ghrit!

    Well, unless the cheap POS .45 I had from hi point or some such would be considered a 1911 clone then I would qualify too. [peep]

    No, that counts as negative experience.

    Well, thats about as close as I've gotten to shooting a 1911, in fact come to think of it thats the only .45 I have even shot.

    Well I went up to my FFL today and got to fingerbang the XD a little:) To my being used to 1911s and what not the trigger feels WAY DIFFERENT....kinda like stepping on a plum?

    500 rounds down range and not ONE problem or hitch or hic-up to report:D

    Actually, I got it about 3 weeks ago. A shipment of 1000 rds .45 arrived a few days later. Planning on getting to the range in the next couple weeks. Now the family is getting my cold.

    Sorry to hear that! I hope you like it, mine is great.

    Infact...EL did you shoot it or did I hog the trigger time when we went out?

    I did manage to wrestle it from your hands for a magazine or two. It did indeed shoot very well.

    Finally saw one in a gunshop. Grip frame not as big as a Beretta 9mm. Would be easy to get used to.
