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!

You could give up on a 1911 and go to a Ruger P95. The P95 doesn't even have a frame. You could shoot it until you break Snow White and all seven of her dwarfs and it will be just fine.

I have a Custom Colt 1911 Light Weight Commando and I doubt if I ever see it wear out regarding the frame. I like the steel frame guns myself. But regarding your question about alloy frames. It brings to mind all the rounds and abuse the Beretta M-9 Military Pistols take. Never seems to be a significant problem with the Alloy Frame, at least I have never heard of it. So I doubt if you and I would ever see it no matter how many rounds we shoot. And I know some (Frames) of them had more than 30,000 + rounds through them on the low side. So i guess who knows how many rounds it would take to wear one out. Also would obvioulsy depend on the loads and other effects.

I can respect you touting your choice in firearms,but were talking about a whole different category of gun here. The p95 is such a different animal than a commander 1911 that I don't think it could ever be even considered for the same uses the other would be.

Besides I already have a double-stack 9mm and I'm as pleased with my Walther PPQ as I can be possibly be.,I have no need for another firearm of the same nature. Thank you for your reply though.
