The guys in Delta shoot a LOT. They basically live to shoot. Larry Vickers is a very no-nonsense kind of guy, who is mellow and low key. His statements are founded on personal experience, and lots of it.

I love my 1911s, but know their limitations quite well.

I had to give up on the 1911 because of the weight. I cant carry that much weight because of an injury. I broke an aluminum 1911 so I just dont trust them. I still like the1911 and keep looking at them. I shot a Para LDA single stack commander sized one today. Nice pistol. I also looked at a new RIA commander sized today Nice except for the sights. They were very poorly finished and very narrow notch. Would probably change them to trititium any way if I bought it. I get tempted often. Still heavy but that helps them shoot easier than my 27 oz fully loaded Glock 36.

jon i do hear what you are saying but also understand that 1911 are not for everyone. some of the down sides dont out weigh the good for me and since i am going to take the best care of my 1911 it also doesnt matter to me. i would trade its few problems for the benefits any day. love my 1911...

the 1911 has very tight tolerances and should be kept very clean. as should all things with tight tolerances. anything. but these tight tolerances also make up what 1911 people love about them. accuracy being the biggest.

in the Korean war may said that their 1911 would jam because of the cold and that the weapon could not be %100 relied upon unless it was wiped dry of oil and fired often. just a little something to keep in mind.
