Get a glock 21 and look for a slide conversion to .22

Just take off one slide and put on the other, stick in the appropriate magazine and off you go! It's called the XT 22/45 Combo and lets you build muscle-memory on a 1911 frame while gaining sight picture skills yet paying pennies-per-shot in .22LR mode. No, you won't get the same recoil action or muzzle lift with the .22 rounds (unless you get someone to whack your hand with a rubber hammer when you fire the thing!), but it still lets your finger feel the same trigger characteristics and your hand feel the same grip and control locations as the big-bore would. In my estimation (and that of a whole bunch of others) there is nothing like the feel of shooting a .45 1911; it is totally unlike the feel of any polymer .45 and this way you could get cheap plinking and the option of tossing major lead when you want to. Check it out, my friend; you won't be sorry!
I really love my Rock Islands, I don't have the convertible. But I have a RI in 22, 9, and 45. Been thinking about a 38 super but not sure I want another caliber to stock up on ammo. Wish they made one in 380. That 380 is cheap and plentiful here, Wally world runs out of everything here but 380 always at least 100 boxes on the shelf.

One gun I did forget to add is the Beretta 92FS which is not only a great but a sexy looking gun from Italy. But I am still leaning towards the Glock but when I do go back to the gun shop I will be looking at this gun again.

Fire the m&p vs. the glock. You will see a difference in the trigger. The glock feels like a dang staple gun!

Please tell me what you do to make your trigger smoother on a glock! Aside from putting in a ghost connector. Thanks.

What kind of polish do you use and what kind of equipment? A dremel?
