    I think I would have to vote .38 Super as my favorite 1911 caliber.

    Am I alone in not voting .45ACP? :rofl: Who favors something else?

    The super is a very capable round.

    I had shot Quack's SA govt in 38 Super, and that was a blast. I like it better than 45ACP.

    The 38 Super is an outstanding round.

    However, all my 1911s will always be 45ACP.

    I prefer 38 super over 45acp, but 9mm is my favorite for fun.

    I think I have more 9mm 1911's than I do 45's

    I do like a 1911 in 40 S&W, but then a 9mm is fun to shoot also, oh hell I like a 45 also.
    THEY ARE ALL FUN.

    Just for shooting my favorite is my 6" STI Trojan 9mm. I find that incredibly enjoyable to shoot.

    In a round itself my favorite is a tough call between 10mm and .357sig

    I love my Supers, but I'm not sure if I'd choose them over 45 ACP or not. :dunno:

    Damn, that .38 barrel looks like a pee shooter compared to the .45.:supergrin: That being said the .38 super is a good defensive round also, although I prefer .45s.

    The CQB Compact is in .38 Super, the big one is .45ACP. The Wilson I have on order now is a 5" .38 Super, can't wait to shoot that one cause the 4" .38 Super is a blast to shoot. Only problem is that compact .38 Super mags are not easy to find....in fact only Wilson sells them and they are cut down full size .38 Super mags made by someone else. They work fine but I would prefer a flush fit magazine.

    I won't own anything but a 9mm 1911, I do like the .45 acp however.

    Why put up with a round that is harder to find and more expensive than 9mm or 45ACP?

    Also...isn't the real reason we go for a 1911, the 45ACP round? Having a 1911 in 9mm is like buying the V6 Mustang....not nearly as fun and not as reliable, either.

    I have a very sweet shooting FN Hi-Power that fills my needs for a single action 9mm. It was designed as a 9mm and works well with that caliber. Designed by the same guy, too.

    Nope...I don't get the wants for 1911s in other calibers....sorry.

    What is wrong with the 45ACP round?

    I've never had the chance to shoot a 1911 in anything other than .45 ACP. But I would like to try out a super before a 9mm or 40 S&W.

    Blah, blah, blah...reliability...blah, blah, blah....

    Have well over 5000 rounds through 2 of my 9mm (each) with no issues, and don't see any that will happen with my others.
