I have owned various manufactures of 1911. My experience with kimber was very bad. Kimber 1911's at that time were made in Clackamas, Oregon. I had a broken firing pin, bent extractor, faulty clip release and lots of nasty sharp edges.

The basic Springfield 1911 made now are from Brazil. I don't care for them. Fit and finish were lacking.

Colt 1991 have been good but, need some Wilson or ??? replacement parts to make them in to a decent defense firearm.

My old and very stolen Norinco 1911 was modeled after the colt gold cup. Give the chinese some credit for copying a good defense gun. I was producing 2.5 inch groups at 25 yards out of the box. It didn't care if I was shooting 230 grain full metal jacket or 185 grain truncated hollow points. I will miss it dearly.

That's my main experience spaning over 15 years with 1911's, including two incidents wich I had to draw. If possible get a conceal weapon permit. And always remember the best weapon is your brain.

I was going to ask if anyone had a Strider knife. How do you like it? I've wanted one for a few years now but always have something else to spend money on.

Onestopknifeshop had the Strider SF Surefire M3 and SOE sheath package for about 450 which is regularly 700, so I had to go for it. Unfortunately its not listed on their website anymore. You should check out the Strider Buck, its pretty sweet, you get a pretty cool package for about 200. Knife Instructional Video and a T-Shirt. Cant go wrong with a Strider.

This is my favorite pistol, I used it for stock pistol competition for many years:

Not THAT sharp, but with a little twist or pull, they will break the skin. It also depends on the model of the flashlight since the angle of the points are different. The sharpest is probably the E2 version. Its mostly a blinding/blunt trauma tool and can really give an advantage in self defence especially at night.


Surefire just came out with their own "TID" version of their E2... the E2D

Its also not as sharp as it looks.

Here's my new (to me) SIG 226 .40 two-tone. I love this thing - the trigger could use some work, but otherwise it is a perfect gun.



I've posted these here before, but once more never hurts. Here's my Glock 26, 9mm sub-compact.



And here is my first - CZ 85b in 9mm.

Keep shooting. That'll be key in your trigger's smoothness.
My p226 has got to be around 6 years old and it's probably had about 5000+ rounds go through it. My roommate picked up his new Sig sometime last year and we were pretty amazed at the difference between the 2. Incidentally, my roommate was the original owner of my Sig and he says the trigger was identical to what he's feeling now in his 220.
