Yeah,I like them to tinker with and look at and modify with fancy grips and all, but for self defense??? Why would I choose 7 rounds of 45 in a 1911 compared to 13 rounds of 40 cal, 10mm, or even more rounds of 9mm or 10 or more rounds of 45 offered in the various Glocks for self defense?? Even if the gun has been proven to be dead nuts reliable as most Glocks are, you still have less rounds in a heavier gun. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
