Default Ohh, look what followed me home. (Gun pron)

Target model Ruger SR1911 in 9mm! It was a deal I couldn't pass up. Full size 5" version and cousin to my SR1911cmd .45 Commander 4.25". The odd inlaw is a RIA Tactical G.I. 5" also in 9mm.

Anything on a 1911 chassis is worth having!--

9mm 1911s are really soft shooters.

Do the 9mm's have to be fired sideways?





But seriously, what's the magazine capacity for the 9's? Single or double stack?

9mm 1911s are normally single stack, my factory Colt magazines are 9 rounds, but i also found 10 round magazines, so you can do 10+1. Remington (I think) makes a double stack 45 1911, not sure if they also make a double stack 9mm 1911.

Its funny how much acceptance the 9mm has gained. A few short years ago, if youd bought a 9mm 1911, you would have had to turn in your man card.

I still shoot my 45s regularly but at age 60 I find the 9 a lot easier to shoot long strings with without waking up with seized shoulders and sore wrists. By long strings I mean 250 or more rounds per range session. I tend to train with what I use defensively unless I am at a match so heavy +P 45 or 115 +P 9 is the norm. A 200gr Berry's RN ahead of 4.3 Bullseye cycles every 45 I own and a 115gr Berry's RN ahead of 3.9 Bullseye I can shoot until my arms get sore from holding my stance.

It has a lot to due with current military standard sidearms and popular culture.

Back in the day , greatest generation time, they made fun of .38 spl but loved the .357 mag while sleeping with their 1911.

The only .45's I have are the 1911's. Had a little Glock 36 (?). Hated it. Nasty recoil. Also had a Para Warthog and P12 double stack and hated them. So fat I couldn't hardly release the slide lock.

I have these 3, or had until that tragic boating accident. The Sig is not as bright blue as the flash makes it appear. The last is a Fusion in .45
