Give me 4 months with my Colt, we'll see if I can get those groupings down to 1 1/2". I'm also going to start practicing trying to keep 5" groupings at 5 yards rapid fire (3 rounds per second). I love my Colt Combat Commander...
If you practice with any weapon, you are going to get better. The nice thing about the 1911 is that it gives you a platform to start from that is quite a bit ahead of it's competitors....


Even though it's over 100 years old.

Be warned: Once you have one 1911, others seem to show up in the safe and just want to hang out.

I am thinking about adding another one, myself.

I never really think about it - they just show up and I have less money...

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!

Yeah. That's how most people end up with a lowly Colt.

Why the rail?? Just out of curiosity.

I have a rail on my USP and at first, I couldn't WAIT to get a light on there.

Then I bought a Surefire, snapped it on there, and went "Huh. Well that was anti-climatic"

You need a special holster. It adds weight to the front of the gun.

Just wondering what the attraction is on your end there 'Squatch.

I can't fire a gun one-handed very well... It will only be for my "home-defense" 1911. So it will stay in the safe, I won't be carrying it on me. I have one for my Glock 23, and I can shoot much more quickly with my Surefire X300 attached to it, than fireing one-handed while holding a flash-light in the other hand.

Just my humble opinion, but I think rails on 1911's cause JMB to spin in his grave.

A friend of mine met us at the range friday and he brought his stainless railed taurus 1911 .45acp. I brought a beretta 92f 9mm, taurus pt111 9mm(3.25"), browning buckmark .22lr. Another friend brought his Springfield XD40SC (3.25") 40 s&w he bought from me a while back. I shot all the pistols at 5-10yards and my best group was with the browning,ofcourse. My next best group was with the Taurus .45 and it was the first time I have ever shot it or any other 1911 platform.

The results for me were like this in terms of accuracy.

1. Browning Buckmark .22lr (5")
2. Taurus 1911 .45acp (5")
3. Springfield Xd40sc 40S&W (I have shot this many times before 3")
4. Beretta 92F 9mm (4.27")
5. Taurus pt111 9mm (3.25")

I was very surprised I was able to shoot the 1911 so well the first time I ever shot it.

BTW, I saw a used kimber ultra carry (blued) with night sites at the shop saturday for $650
