Just get a 1911. You won't regret it.

I had all these responses planned out which are all moot now except two. First, congrats on your new gun. I love my 9c and my wife's full sized. They're excellent guns and fit our hands exceptionally well.

And second, there's absolutely no reason why you should feel like you need to replace a revolver. Mine is still my favorite to shoot.

But I digress.

Finally got to go shoot tonight. Wow 100 rounds go quick. Love the gun but I think the trigger pull is a little to long. I love the 9mm round and verry happy with it. And extremely happy with the gun. I got to shoot my dads kimber .45 as well the kick is not to much worse but the trigger pull was so smooth.

so here Is my first clip with the gun and second time I have shot

I didn't care for the target set up at the range. Cable system yo get the targets down range and then they sat and bounced. But that's ok.

I would shoot a p95. Best gun for the money out there! New, around 400 maybe cheaper if shopped! Little heavy to carry but doable!! Very reliable and sweet to shoot! The weight absorbers Most of the recoil! Anyone that owns one, will know what I'm talking about!! Best of luck
