PM Jo da Plumbr and ask him. He has a Colt 1911 commander 38super and he lives behind enemy lines in downtown Kalie! If he can get ammo in La La Land you should have no probelemo!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Maybe the event I saw modeled one of the types you're mentioning,
but was a amateur low scale version?
Anything's possible. I've seen matches done on some strange formats.
There is an annual and very popular match every year in Idaho that's
split along frame sizes--Sub compact, compact and full size.
Single Stack matches for 1911's are common, and around here we have
a annual "Plastic gun championship" match for polymer framed pistols.

What range was it and when was the match? I'm kind of curious now.

The only place that I'm aware of that you can "make major" with a
38 super is USPSA Open Division, but then I don't shoot a lot of
different diciplines.

What other sanctioning bodies recognize 38 super as major?

Did some research...it seems that one of the gun & rifle organizations in the state I live in had a "Pistol Competitor Shooting Challenge" last month, to me it seemed to be an Open Class. From what I understand it was on private property and they are planning to have more events like the one I described previously.

Like the welded on beavertail, combat hammer and Yost thumb safety!

When it comes to Browning pistols (1911 and the BHP) it just doesn't get any better than Ted Yost!

I will only own two 9mm handguns;
  1. The Luger P08 and the
  2. Browning High Power

I have the P08, the Yost BHP is next!

It's on my dance card and if I hadn't just dropped a wad on a new Colt, it would have been soon.

Oh well, just another reason to keep on breathing!
That's a mighty fine 1911, for sure!!
I'm sure it'll give me the edge over the competition,
but I can't fit it in my budget.

I have used a Springfield Loaded Target model 1911 in IDPA. I must say mine was a disappointment, but most people have good luck with them. Now I have a new Nighthawk Custom on order in 9mm, but that is north of the price limit you mentioned.

I have a Kimber custom target II in 9mm that was about $900.00 nib. I really like it and it has become my favorite 9mm hands down. But I'm biased toward 1911's anyway.

yeah, I would love a Nighthawk Custom or a Wilson Combat Custom.
I'm only going to use it for amateur shooting competition. Right now
I have to crawl before I can walk. Thanks for your input.
If you don't mind me asking, How much is the Nighthawk 9mm runnin' ya'?

robbo60, are you referring to the Kimber Stainless Target II?
I haven't seen/held one yet, but I'm beginning to lean toward Kimbers.

Yes, I'm sorry. Kimber stainless target II. Very happy with it. I will be shooting 250 rounds through it this weekend at a friends range. Can't wait.
