I am very close to getting the 19x. $588 excellent value with great features, just no provision for an optical sight. Otherwise seems to be worthy of best modern handgun.I have a Glocks. Ruger and a few other stuff .
I shoot my Kimber 1911 the best .
But I carry my glock19x .
Basically just because of capacity.
I can carry one mag in the gun and a extra mag and have 35 rounds.
Define proper.I did very well with the 1911 and the P35 "High Power". I now shoot the Sig P220 instead of the 1911 and the P226 instead of the P35. I shoot the Glock well and recommend it and the S&W MP 2.0. I don't own either now.
If you get the chance shoot the CZ 75 or 1911 first. This will give you a great baseline for future decisions. Each fits well and shoots fantastic. The bad news is a proper 1911 costs at least $1000 now new.
Yup. When the adrenaline dump is happening, any vital section will do!Ive owned many 1911's and really just keep acquiring them on a whim sometimes even though I really dont like them and consider them maybe not boat anchors but at least as heavy as one. Sure you can make them accurate but I'm not a pinpoint accuracy guy. Minute of heart at 15 foot is as good as I need a pistol to be.
P226 for me.
Had a RIA 1911 that ran like a Sewing machine. With good mags of course.Betcha he means "Colt"
Plenty of sub-$1000 guns that will run. $600-800 gets you a fine example of a 1911. I still would not personally trust the Filipino made budget guns. I'd honestly sooner trust a Taurus 1911.
Always thought H&Ks were overpriced. There are plenty of guns that shoot just as well that won't dent your wallet as badly. That said though, if you want a Porsche, nothing else will do.The compact H&K .45 ACP was purchased to enjoy the high quality of these German made firearms. Of course it must take a special course on how to hold a firearm of that quality. Not even a Keltec drops the magazine when firing. I would not recommend H&K hand guns. Too many modern firearms are completely reliable so that using one with an inherent fault is not worth considering.
