That seems to be the prevailing attitude of everyone I speak with about this. Still have a
choice to make. Should probably just buy a Kimber, save a couple thousand bucks, and be happy

Help me out here folks.I am torn between two fine examples of the 1911, the Nighthawk T3 and
the Wilson Combat Elite Professional. It would help if I had the opportunity to handle and fire

As I said, if- in combat- you are reaching for your sidearm you are in deep trouble already.
Capacity matters. Its not everything, but it should be considered, especially in a military
firearm that wi...

I am aware of that, but meant the regular military. Should have been clear about that. I doubt

I went to high school just down the road from where that happened. Correct me if I am wrong,
and im sure you all will, but I was under the impression that another reason the FBI got away

I live in Miami, a place where you wear shorts and a t-shirt all the time. So I carry a Kahr
PM40 most of the time, but when weather is cooler and clothing changes I will carry a full size
