1911 platform is by far my favorite one. as for caliber, my favorite in that platform has to be the 45, and simply because that is all i have ever had them in. but my next one that i would like to modify and build will be in 38 Super, built strictly a fun range and target pistol. not going to be as concerned with reliability, but more for accuracy. just something i have wanted to do for a long time.

I like the one with a trigger and goes bang launching a projectile. (I haven't shot enough different guns to be able to choose a favorite)

Glock all the way. I prefer my Glock fully loaded in a Serpa II holster with an addition of a trigger block safety. Reading the site www.glockleg.com, one can't be to careful. Lol

While the chamber being empty, gives a simular result, it lowers the available rounds by 1, and is more difficult to present than removing the trigger block.

Recently became a Glock certified armorer, and I am more impressed with the male tupperware that goes boom, than ever. They are built wonderfully, and make very long lasting sidearms. I have a G20 that is in its third decade, not one complaint.

Do all the work yourself using Ed Brown specs, can't go wrong.

XS sights
VZ grips
Kimber mags
A 10mm 1911 would be pretty cool. Though I think I'd start on a Fusion frame. I don't much care for Kimber

The only Kimber parts I would use would be their mags. They are the only 10mm 1911 mags I've used that are worth half a sh!t.

Not sure what frame/slide I would use. Hmm???

Since you say ".. to build off of." Mine would be the 1911.

I do like tinkering with Glocks, because the modular design makes them easy for some fun experimentation on my non-carry ones.

I would do an ar-15 pistol and buy a nice sling for it with an aimpoint sight and some magazine couplers and maybe a magpul angled foregrip so ittl still be legal and a 100 round beta mag

1911 in 9mm or .38 super. Would be a full race gun.

I also like glocks for their simplicity and wide variety of parts. Having multiple top ends and no issues on one frame is handy.
