    EAA also makes a 10mm pistol. From what I understand, the Witness Match is better than the regular Witness due to construction of the Witness Match. Smith and Wesson makes a 10mm pistol as well I believe, and they used to make a revolver (model 610) if you can find them at a good price which is extremely difficult.

    Check out Dan Wesson, for the $900-1500 price range, they are the one to beat. Fusion might do it but at a few more $$$. Colt is good, but it doesn't have the ramped barrel...but, this works for many. For hot loads most want ramped.

    1911 and ramped barrels, the general consensus is that you're better off with a ramped barrel.

    I've had some poor initial luck with Kimber, but, the gun is running fine now, a .45acp, other's swear by them, their 10mm models come with a ramped barrel.

    If I were shopping today for a 1911, I'd hold off until I found a used 5" Dan Wesson, with ramped barrel, most all of them after 2008 are ramped.

    If I had the $1500 I'd go for the latest model.

    The D.W. CBOB with a 4.25" barrel is the perfect woods carry gun for me in the Central Rockies for animal threats under 500 pounds. It's a 10mm Commander with a bobbed tail, kind of rare but you might find one out there.

    See http://forums.1911forum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=52

    Dave Severn's a top notch 1911 gunsmith over there is a stocking dealer, might be able to line one up for you.

    Those guy's might even help you locate one, lot's of 1911 experience over there.

    Thanks Jitterbug, I have come to value your contributions very much as of late. Thanks for the insight on this and other subject matter related to the 10 mm. Been learning a lot here lately and folks like you are the reason why.

    Jitterbug is a dumb ****, I taught him everything he knows, and he managed to forget nearly all of it. How he manages to string together a moderately sensible sentence is beyond me. Just about the only thing that comes out of his mouth that you can trust is the truth would be something like "Glocks are good", anything else is pure bull ****!

    Haha, Im just messin, I dont even know jitterbug, but from the posts Ive read he knows his stuff!

    There is a member here named bac1023, and he has more 1911's than anyone else Ive ever heard of. It is just ridiculous how many he has. All of them are .45acp, but Im willing to bet he knows all about the 10mm models also. You may try asking him about this matter!

    Well my wife agrees with ya arushus, although she doesn't put it as nicely as you do, but at least I have enough sense to stay away from Uncle Allen.
