I carried a 1911 for many years. 90% of them were full size and I dabbled with an officers model for a while but I didn't shoot it nearly as well as the full size 1911's. I didn't like my G21 at first because it was so wide and blocky feeling, and of course the horrible Glock trigger. I carry the 21 for S.D. and it is my nightstand gun. Hard to argue the fact that 14 rounds of 45 and the ease and reliability of it make it favorable. I still shoot 1911's a lot and I do love them more than any other handgun I've ever had or probably will have. Here is the change that I am referring to: Because I carry the 21 and shoot it a lot I am perfectly comfortable with it and it is a good feeling gun in my hand. I now get this feeling with the 1911's of... "Wow is this a slim feeling gun in my hand. Almost strange feeling". How things change... Hey? I know... just shoot the 1911's more!!!
