My Compact II works well for that. Recoil is controllable and rounds are delivered as accurately as one can when concentrating solely on quickly dropping a bad guy like a bad habit.

The front sight falls back into the same place every time and is in the same place every time I draw.

I've run many different brands of ball ammo with ne'er a hiccup. The same goes for hollow point ammo, including large cavity, defense HP rounds. I ran a full box of Hydrashocks through it before deciding to use them as my defense ammo of choice. At one point in time, I also ran 100 rounds of lead semi-wadcutters though it without a single misfeed.

There's a range report for you.

DITTO.

At 50 yards?! Dang, I'd be sore pressed to see 10" plates at 50 yards. Most of my practice consists of 7-10 yards. But an occasional 21 yard accuracy shoot.

For me, 50 yards begs a slug fest from my 870 or borders on .22 territory from a rifle. My eyes ain't what they used to be.

Thanks Matt, I couldn't figure out how to bring home one of them steel targets without getting in trouble with the range officials.

DITTO for shooting.

There you go Goju, range report.

I worked in a shop that had a water jet. There was a big pile of those things sitting behind the shop. I asked my boss if I could grab a couple and he said it was okay. A buddy had an old bed frame or some pig iron or something that we hacked up and used as the stakes.

They're fun for doing advancing drills with long arms too. The big dent at 11 o'clock is where we accidentally had a slug mixed in with the bird shot we were using in the shotty.

They've taken hundreds of .45 ACP, about 50-75 if 5.56x45 and a metric butt load of bird shot and they're holding up great. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to abuse them recently.

OK, My shooting was worth squat but this shows how well the 1911 is even if your are shooting like SHEET.
RIA 1911 Federal 230 GR FMJ vs. Ruger P345 Federal 230 GR FMJ
10yds


Top Target: RIA 1911 Bottom Target: Ruger P345
Like I said I was terrrible, but the 1911 was not.

Still a Fun Day at the Range.

I don't have any targets to show you, but here's my current favorite 1911:



Kimber Pro CDP II - I like it a lot.
