Why is it that when you're watching the movies, the VAST majority of handguns are 1911's. Example - Pulp fiction, travolta and jackson both carried 'em. Just watching james bond on tv and the bad guy carries, of course, a 1911. If you haven't noticed it, keep your eye out. I think you'll agree. The point is, the 1911 may be a great gun, but they're expensive a complicated. My friends that carry either go with a wheel gun, G19, or some sort of glock. One oddball buddy carries a S&W 45cal semi auto, but not a 1911. Just a fun point, cant wait to hear your responses.
