I really don't know why Van cheese-dip thought this thread was an attempt by me to start a "taste great / less filling" argument over what is the best gun for EDC. I was simply asking about the M1911 and if anyone here had experience with one.

PS: since we are now fighting over the better pump shotgun design, I will have to vote for the 870 as well. I am convinced you could bury one in the mud and come back 6 months later and hose it off and it would shoot just fine.

I'm the guilty one when it comes to starting arguments...I seem to do it without even trying...

Almost every shotgun followed the Remington Model 17 design which was the predecessor to the 870. Now every pump shotgun compares itself to the 870, that says it all.

To be fair the current express' are one step short of being a good gun. I had ejection issues from the get go with a new 870 express. For years I figured it was this or that. But turns out the extractor they use from the factory on the express(see, cheapest) is NOT a solid milled steel part but a machine injection molded part. So it rounds off quick. Anyway I bought an aftermarket one on Amazon for 20 bucks. Problem solved. Still way to much money to solve a problem that shouldn't exist.

Siiiiggggghhhhhh
They just don't make them like my late 70s wingmaster anymore

Everyone I know myself included have really enjoyed the 870. I had a set of ghost sights installed and it was my favorite shotgun.

I would love to get my hands on a Springfield 1911 .45 caliber. I qualified expert with it easier than with a 2inch snub nose .38 caliber while serving as an MP.

Message me if anyone has some good leads. It's the weapon I've decided to carry. I like the knock down power of 45 versus the plink plink of a 38 or 9mm.

Carolyn there are a bunch for sale on Gunbroker, both polished stainless and matte finish. Example: http://www.gunbroker.com/item/674117770

The price range seems to be $750 to $1,000...even more with fins and powered windows.

And this: https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_...oaded+1911?op=

Just keep in mind that this kind of shopping can be dangerous...to your bank account.

"Knock down power" is a myth

The best way to knock someone down with one shot is to shoot them more than once.
