Get a damned 1911 and learn for yourself. (And bac is the perfect person to help you choose a specific 1911, plus hes an all around good guy as well.)
The OP could at least buy 20 to 30 examples of a 1911 and try them out for a few thousand rounds each. Then he and Bac could have some good discussions afterwards over a beer
