More like guys who seek to pay for success rather than work at it

Buck,

If you like the Longmire TV series, read the books by Craig Johnson. The dialogue is about as good as it gets. Much said with few words. Please excuse the diversion. Back to guns.

Shoot a Commander size (mid size) 1911. There's Colt of course, but Remington makes a carry commander that is a quality gun for the money, around $800 new I believe. Very reliable and accurate, had one for a while then gave it to a son-in-law when I learned he was hankering for a .45. Not hard to carry at all. .45 ammo's just tough on my budget.

I love a good 1911 - was my favorite carry in the Army. That rinky dinky .38 caliber they made female MPs carry was not impressive. I was able to qualify and carry the 1911.

I would love one know but I don't if my wrists filled with rheumatoid arthritis could bear more than shooting 5-10 rounds.

I want to start hitting some ranges and trying out what is doable for me to make my concealed carry.

Going to apply for my Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act credentials - giving me a 50 state cc license. I don't want to be a soft target in today's world.

There are some softer shooting 9mms out there. 1911 platforms esp. More than adequate +P ammo out there for SD as well.
