I know that 99% of the 1911's out there are awesome pistols, but should a person CCW a very nice 1911? If you have to defend your self and shoot someone, your CCW weapon WILL be taken from you for a while, and who knows how it will be treated, for that reason I'm wondering if it would be wise to carry a real nice pistol. Use your high end 1911's at the range and CCW something like a RIA or SA Milspec, something like that. What are your thoughts Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
