What brand/model, and how would rate the "comfort" to your hand? I've read of peaple putting up with hammer bite or grip safety pinch, or other issues, with their 1911s. But I really don't know if that is common. With my Taurus ALR, I'm surprised how it is so comfortable to shoot. I have very little 1911 experience, but others I've held felt like they would pinch, and the couple I've shot have really pushed hard into the web of my hand (with target ammo). So for shooting comfort, I'll give my Taurus ALR a score of 10 (on a scale of 1 to 10).
