    1911 Guys - What's your favorite?

    For several years my preferred carry was a 9mm Colt New Agent (3" barrel). I replaced Colt's plastic MSH with an arched Smith and Alexander MSH and refinished it with Robar's NP3+ and added Esmeralda's macassar ebony grips. Sold it some time ago. Link Removed

    Having a hard time... a 9mm or a .380?

    Kaytee, the best advice has already been given. Go somewhere where you can shoot a variety of pistols. If you lean toward a small .380, the Sig P238 has been very popular with women. While most .380s use a blow-back design, the Sig P238 uses a locked breech. The result is the Sig P238 is a...

    Picky indecisive guy need help

    My CC favorite is the 9mm Colt New Agent with Crimson Trace grips. Bought this gun new and it was flawless for 1,800 rounds. When I began to experience feed issues, I replaced the original recoil spring assembly. The gun is running like a clock again. Colt wouldn't give me a straight answer...

    I've owned a 9mm Colt New Agent for a little over a year now and it quickly became my favorite choice for carry. Except for Hornady Critical Defense rounds, this gun eats everything and has functioned flawlessly for 1200 rounds and counting. It weighs about 25 ozs. when loaded with 8+1. The...

    Raven holster

    I have a Raven Phantom for my 1911 with a rail-mounted laser/light combo. The holster functions perfectly...good retention, smooth draws and easy re-holstering. My only issues are with the kydex itself. Compared to a leather holster, kydex causes a noisier draw and is more abrasive on a gun's...

    Opinions on pocket carry of Sig P238

    I have a Sig P238 and as a 1911-owner, I confidently carry the P238 in condition one. For the P238, I prefer OWB concealed carry when wearing a jacket or a loose fitting shirt. But when wearing a tucked-in shirt and no jacket I will pocket carry. And when wearing elastic waist shorts I will...
