Series-70 1911 with a rail, good sights, and a 3lb trigger. Nuff said!

I'm a 9mm guy, but I always got a kick out of longer-range handgun shooting. So, that said, I might say an accurized 1911. Maybe something that will shoot at least 8MOA (at 100 yards) would be sweet.

Then again, if I am designing it, I'd probably go ahead and use a similar design that allowed me to tune the muzzle-end lockup, but as a double-stack 9mm. Or, maybe I'd go with 10mm instead, now that I think of it...

Its a wheelie but if this 8 shot 357 was in stainless steel it would be perfect for me. But I can't buy a scandium revolver; I think I am allergic.
