Today I was trying to decide whether it was going to be the XD or the P226 that was going to be sacrificed in order to help fund a 5" Nighthawk. Gawd damn.

I am starting to see why so many "discover" this platform (1911) and forsake all others.
Quoted for truth right there....

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!

I guess I'll just have to stick with my "ol junky homemade" 1911s that I got to build myself.

Bear, anytime you want to get rid of your "ol junky homemade" 1911's be sure to give ol canebrake a call. I'll buy every one you want to get rid of!

I might just do that if I ever need to sell some of them or if I have order cancellations. Once in a while, somebody will have me build 1 for them and when I get it done, can't come up with the rest of the $. I'll let you know and post pics when I do. Neil

I promise her I'll be a good boy all the while scheming to place another order all the while. Occasionally I have to sell 1 of these ol home made pistols even before I build it-that means stooping down to build whatever parts/style/type/level the mean ol buyer wants, it's the only way I've found to support my serious habit. Sounds like you have a GREAT pistol and am interested in seeing some slow fire targets, just to see what it'll do.
Yer preachin' to the choir there, stalkingbear.

Great range report.

Another satisfied 1911 shooter. I am in the same boat. I have thought about getting rid of my XD to get another 1911 platform also. I do like the XD, though. I like having a polymer "Glock-Killer" around...lol.

If you like your XD then hang onto it & buy another 1911 down the road. I'd hate to see you part with it & experience "seller's remorse" later. I've decided some time ago that I'm never going to sell another of my own personal firearms. I do plan on giving several away to my son/daughter/nephew however.
