Obviously you are knowledgeable, so I'm wondering what prompts you to make the statement that the 9mm is your favorite ''range caliber'' (whatever that implies). I'm a 45ACP lover, and have carried a Colt 1911 almost daily since 1968. I realize you collect 1911s and didn't test any, but that sheds no light on your statement, and just adds to my curiosity.......
Joe, I honestly just like the way the 9mm handles. I also love all the cool pistols chambered for it.

The thread wasn't about 1911s, but I did add a couple later on at some member's request.

They're in post #70.
