Would give my left arm for a WW2 1911. I carried a issued, 'modern' 1911 through all of my days working the road. Now retired I carry one concealed every day. Reasons: I have never liked the feel of Tactical Tupperware pistols, secondly after many many thousands of rounds down range with one I hit what I am engaging. I definitely subscribe to the if it is not broken do not fix it mode of firearms carry.
